PET PROMISE CERTIFICATE
Pets as gifts have always been a topic of controversy. Some studies show that pets given as gifts stay in their homes LONGER than those acquired in other ways. Yet there is concern that the recipient be prepared for all the responsibilities that come with adding a pet to their family and that the holidays might be too hectic a time to introduce a new pet into the household. Whatever your take on pets as gifts, the Highland Animal Shelter PET PROMISE CERTIFICATE is a great solution.
The PET PROMISE CERTIFICATE allows the gift-giver to present the Highland Animal Shelter Pet Promise Certificate promising the recipient the chance to adopt a pet. The gift-giver can wrap some necessary pet-care items such as a collar and leash or a carrier and give these with the Highland Animal Shelter PET PROMISE CERTIFICATE. Then after the hustle of the Holidays, the gift-giver can bring the new pet-parent-to-be to Highland Animal Shelter or to our PetSmart adoption event and can help them pick the perfect pet to add to their family. The gift giver can then pay for the adoption fee. The new pet-parent will be required to complete the required paperwork and agree to our adoption contract in order to complete the HAS adoption.
If we can encourage anyone thinking of adding a pet to their family as a holiday gift to think adoption - and stay out of the puppy-mill supplied pet stores - that will be a real gift to the homeless pets. So pass this Holiday tip along and encourage folks to give the gift of a Highland Animal Shelter PET PROMISE CERTIFICATE.
Please remember, the Highland Animal Shelter is a NON-PROFIT shelter.
