In these challenging economic times, most of us are preoccupied with stretching a dollar and shrinking expenses.
If you have pets or are thinking about getting a dog or cat, there are lots of ways to save money on the cost of pet ownership, including:
- Adopting rather than buying an animal
- Buying used pet equipment like a crate or kennel
- Grooming your pet yourself rather than paying a professional
- Making your own pet toys
- Trading pet sitting duties with a pet-loving friend
