3. Visit a pet store and view different animals. Which animal would be best for your family? Do you have room for it? Can you afford it?
4. Learn how to take care of an animal by having one of your own or researching the information online or by talking to someone. What items do you need to care for it? What type of food do they eat? How often do you need to clean its home? Do you need to clean it or brush it?
