The chances are high, especially if you have children, that someone is going to want to add a puppy, kitten, or other animal to your little family group. If you've been considering getting a pet for your family, you may want to start educating yourself and family members before you bring so much as a goldfish home. I don't know of a better place to start learning than from the ASPCA.

To become better informed about pets or show your support for animals, you may want to subscribe to one of the many helpful newsletters, especially the Parenting & Education edition and/or request a free ASPCA wristband.
