The Cost Of Owning A Dog or Cat Is Over $13,000!

A new study just came out that says the average cost of owning a dog or cat is $13,220. This is based on the average life span of 10 years and includes things like food, toys, and veterinary care. It all works out to $111 dollars a month. This sounds about right to me. My cat has to have prescription food and he has had higher than usual vet bills this last year, so his “total” is probably going to end up higher than that….and you know what, he’s worth it! I figure he has saved me at least that amount in therapy just for 2020 alone! LOL
You know, the Sacramento SPCA is a great place to adopt your pet because they cover all of the initial veterinary care costs. They also have several programs to help people afford to keep their pets healthy and happy. I’ve been out to their facility and can tell you 100% that the animals there are LOVED and very well cared for! If you’re looking for a furry companion, they are the best place to start looking!
