Love Animals but Can't Have a Pet? Here's How to Get Your Fur Fix

- Offer to help care for friends' pets as a part-time job.
Similarly, is it cruel to rehome a dog?
Is dog rehoming bad? Rehoming is a difficult decision. If your dog's behavior is putting you or your family at risk, then rehoming is the responsible choice. You and your dog may have a lifestyle mismatch or you may be no longer able to physically give your dog the care he needs.
Likewise, where can I buy a dog?
Online resources include The Shelter Pet Project (http://theshelterpetproject.org/shelters), Petfinder, and Adopt a Pet (http://www.adoptapet.com/). Adoption fees with animal shelters and rescue groups are usually low. Many animal shelters and rescue groups have websites where you can look at their adoptable pets.
Is it cruel to keep a dog outside?
If you are really interested in doing what your dog prefers, do not force all dogs to live inside all of the time, and do not force a dog with a thin coat to spend his life at the end of a chain or rope. Both things are just as cruel as locking them in a crate at your convenience. It is okay to leave dogs outside.
