San Francisco Considers Banning Pet Sales

Critter News

All companion animals including dogs, cats, hamsters, mice, rats, chinchillas, guinea pigs, birds, snakes, and lizards would be considered as pets.

Choosing the right pet for your child is key. By Dr. Tim Hunt, DVM.

Not all retirement communities are created equal. And while many are similar, there are always certain things that set the best ones apart from the rest. One of these things is how the retirement community regards its residents owning pets.
