When adopting, why is it necessary to bring the entire family?

Everyone in the household is required to see the animal you are adopting prior to the actual adoption. We cannot guarantee the pet you would be adopting is housebroken, nor do we guarantee the temperament of the animal with children, adults, or other pets. Many of the animals we have are stray animals and we do not know their background. This is why, if you do have children or other pets at home, we require you to bring them here to the facility to see how they react with the pet you have chosen
