11. Lifetime Support
Raising a pet, in many ways, is similar to raising a child. Just as you would ask questions about parenthood and get advice from experts, you need that same support for your pet. ASPCA offers that service by providing lifetime support for the pet you adopt. You are free to ask any question from: "What do I do when my dog wants to be in my bed?" and "What if my dog chases my cat?" to the very basic, "What do I feed my dog?"
"Things will come up that you weren't ready for," says Buchwald. "Any question is a good question."
