(KPLR) – The holidays are a time when people start thinking about adopting a pet or pets.

Jeremy Bond from the Edwardsville Petco joined Christine Buck with some simple thoughtful tips for what you need to know before you go and adopt a pet.

Bond said there are three important questions to ask before getting a pet including; how much time every day can be committed to the pet, what is affordable (vet costs, food, etc.), and why is the family adopting a pet? Consider the motivation.
