Pet Promise Certificate

The good people at are gearing up for this year’s holidays. This is from what I found in my email today:

Celebrate the Gift of Pet Adoption!

Want to give a pet as a gift? Give our Pet Promise Certificate instead!

With the Pet Promise Certificate, your loved one can adopt the pet that best suits his or her lifestyle — and you promise to cover the adoption fees for the new family member.

In addition, the Certificate features a New Adopter’s Pledge that promotes responsible pet parenting.

I think this is a great idea being put forward and would like to see something like this as a standard. Please feel free to share this with your friends and family … and other pet-friendly people, too.
