Considering a Pet? Consider the Costs

Considering pet ownership? Check your budget and your bank account first. A recent Associated Press article lays it all out: food, training, health care, grooming, boarding or pet sitting. Caring for a dog can add up to $1,000 a year or more.

Note the story was filed from Houston area and the costs of spaying and neutering can run as high as $300 in the Philadelphia area, although low cost programs are available.  For more information, check out the ASPCA's detailed table of "pet care costs" on its Web site.
