Pet Assistance State by State Resources

Our pets are more than just animals – they are member of our family. Every pet owner ensures that their pet lives a healthy life no matter how much dollars they have to spend on them. According to a report published by Forbes, people who have large pet dogs spend at least $1,570 a year which, for an average lifespan of 12 years, could come to over $18,000. And that doesn’t include factoring in expensive emergency medical costs. Vet bills can add up like that even with cats as well..
