Mr. Houla’s Tips for Adopting a Pet

Here are a couple of things to think about before getting a pet.

  • Think about how much space you have in your home or yard. If you don’t have a yard you must consider that you will have to walk your pet daily.
  • How much time do you have to spend with a pet?
  • How will you train your pet? Classes, books, dvd?
  • Know that a dog or cat’s life is an average of 15 years. Too many animals get homes because they are “cute” babies and then are “back on the market” Don’t adopt a pet unless you plan to make a lifetime commitment.
  • Do you have the money to cover medical costs. You should also check out some different pet insurance companies.

If you are considering getting a family pet, I encourage you to check out They are basically a data base for over 10,000 shelters in the USA, Canada, and Mexico. They don’t just have dogs or cats either. They have listings for horses, pigs, birds, even reptiles.

Pet Finder also offers articles about pet behavior and training.

Mr. Houla’s 101 Donations Challenge

Hi, Mr. Houla here!  I was talking with my boy’s mom, Tiffany, the other day and we were talking about how great it was that my boy found me.  I mean really, I go with this family like peanut butter goes with jelly!  If you ever read my page you know all about that though.  Then we were talking about how there are lots of dogs that haven’t found good people yet and how they live at shelters or foster homes. Tiffany told me places like that need money.

So, we came up with “Mr. Houla’s 101 Donations Challenge” Tiffany said we could ask people to go donate this money stuff and it would help all those homeless dogs.

Here is how you can help furmanity! Head on over to Metroplex Mutts scroll all the way down to the bottom of that page until you see the donate button on the right paw side, then make a donation of at least $1.00 that shouldn’t hurt too bad! So, if that doesn’t hurt maybe you could put in more like $5, $10, $20 or even more!  Then after you are done with all that good stuff come fill out the inlinkz thing (that blue button thing at the bottom of this post!)  so we can see how many people helped out.  Our goal is to get at least 101 Donations!

You can also help spread the word by clicking the like button!
