This project doesn’t have to be expensive, but the financial commitment will depend on the animal you choose. Some animals are more expensive than others. Things to consider are feeding, caring, housing, and medical needs. How much time does it take to care for the animal you want? How much money does it take to feed? Does that pet have special medical needs? Does it require special cages or housing? And do you have space for that? Discuss it with your family before you choose an animal!
In this project, you will keep records of everything about your pet. It can be a big commitment, but the most rewarding part? Developing a relationship with your new pet! You will learn responsibility, empathy, respect and more.
