Finances for Fido: The Simple Dollar

Aly over at The Simple Dollar has written up a great article on the finances involved with caring for a pet, and we decided to share it here! I’m not going to copy the whole article, i’d like you to go read it on their site, but it’s a terrific article, and gets into the details of cost of ownership.

Before you decide to adopt, it may be a good idea to sit down with your budget and make sure you have room for a new dependent. We love to see dogs leaving the shelter for a good home, but we love more when they STAY in their good home, and we’d hate to see money be the reason they come back!

Check out the article, and let us know in the comments what you think about it.


Welcome to our shiny new blog! We’re getting all the ducks and squirrels in a row here, but, as you might imagine, it’s quite a task when we’re also wrangling the mutts running around with aforementioned ducks and squirrels. By the way, did you know that squirrels can climb trees faster than dogs can? Well, we know, because we’ve seen it a dozen times today. Oh, wait, make that 13… “Max! Get down from that tree this instant!” Crazy dogs… gotta run!
See you around the park! 😀
