Adopting a little companion for our kids!

Guest post written by Rachel Holt

We don't live near our extended family members and I feel sorry for my kids because of that. I remember when I was growing up that I lived near all of my relatives and they were really some of my best friends growing up. I wish that my kids had that. But they have lots of friends on their own. I was thinking about this not too long ago when I decided that a great resolution to that could be getting the kids a dog for extra companionship. Plus, they've been dropping hints like crazy about wanting a pet. I thought that now's finally the time for it.

But we haven't dropped that hint to the kids and only decided to after we were researching pet adoption and saw the site That helped us figure out if a pet is going to really fit into our family's finances and it gave us some definite insight.

I decided that if I gave up my Starbucks habit it would help free up some costs and I think it's worth it for our family to participate in pet adoption. I want to give a deserving animal a home and my kids a pet companion!
