But adoptions can come with their own difficulties, especially if the pet is older or suffered from abuse.

Focusing chiefly on dogs and cats but also covering other adoptable animals, the book discusses feeding, supplies, health care, housetraining, basic obedience, solutions to behavior problems, and the special needs of older and abused animals.
