Buying a Pet as a Christmas Gift?

Please don’t.  If the pet is not for your immediate family, don’t buy a pet as a gift.  Instead buy them Pet Gift Certificate, available at the Georgetown Animal Shelter.  With a gift certificate, the new owner can choose the pet that fits their lifestyle and pulls on their heart strings, and is the perfect match.  Gift certificates can be purchased at the animal shelter for $70, which includes spay/neuter, rabies vaccination and other annual vaccinations, deworming and microchipping.
