Already have a pet and want to know if they've got everything they need? Find out about your pet's 5 welfare needs.

The law says that you must be 16 or over to buy or own an animal. Anyone under that age should talk to a responsible adult about everything that's involved in owning a family pet and work through these questions with them.

Your Right Pet will suggest pets that might be suitable for you, based on your lifestyle and circumstances. It will not suggest exotic pets like reptiles, or large animals like horses. These pets are particularly demanding to keep properly, requiring specialist knowledge and care.
