If you have been thinking about adopting a dog or cat for a while now, but are worried it could be too expensive, this infographic on the cost of pet adoption will make you more informed on the subject. Created by MintLife Blog in honor of June being Adopt a Cat Month, the chart 'Financing Your Furry Friend' helps you to get a better handle on the first year of adopting a new pet.
The cost of pet adoption includes adoption fees (which will vary depending on the place), spay or neutering, a collar and leash, food, health insurance, grooming and more. While the adoption fee might cover some of the first year expenses like vaccinations, it might not cover other things like behavior training. The cost will also change depending on the size of the animal.
