Pets' Bill of Rights
right to be full members of your family. We thrive
on social interaction, praise, and love.
2. We have the right to stimulation. We need new
games, new toys, new experiences, and new smells
to be happy.
3. We have the right to regular exercise. Without
it, we could become hyper, sluggish...or fat.
4. We have the right to have fun. We enjoy acting
like clowns now and then; don't expect us to be
predictable all the time.
5. We have the right to quality health care.
Please stay good friends with our vet!
6. We have the right to a good diet. Like some
people, we don't know what's best for us. We
depend on you.
7. We have the right not to be rejected because of
your expectations that we be great show dogs or
show cats, watchdogs, hunters, or baby-sitters.
8. We have the right to receive proper training.
Otherwise, our good relationship could be marred
by confusion and strife. And we could become
dangerous to ourselves and others.
9. We have the right to guidance and correction
based on understanding and compassion, rather than
10. We have the right to live with dignity...and
to die with dignity when the time comes.
