You can select from the Humane Society either a young or older pet. Some people move out of state and leave their 3-4-5 year old pets here. Some people leave newborn pets, also, as they can't take care of them..(never having had the female spayed!). Just don't overlook the older pet; they usually have been 'house-broken' for you already! But the newborns my just be what you are looking for, too. Here, the choice is up to you. Kittens are easily trained to litter boxes, and puppies easily trained for their 'outside-business' walks. Just a little patience and caring on your part.
