Text Box: I am acquiring a pet to love and enjoy.
It is a privilege to own a pet
I have a responsibility to care for my pet during its life expectancy
I am not impulsively obtaining a pet
I have consulted the other members of my household.
I have considered how it will change my lifestyle.
I know my responsibility in regard to food, water, housing, medical care
and training and expense.
I am aware of society's animal surplus problem and my part in it.
I will control my pet's ability to produce offspring by having 
it spayed and neutered.
I will follow state and local laws pertaining to my pet and prevent it from 
infringing on the rights of others.
I will not abandon my pet.

If I cannot properly care for my pet,

and have it humanely euthanized by a veterinarian.
