What is a responsible pet owner?
A responsible pet owner takes good care of his or her pet. It is more than making sure that your pet has enough food and water (though that is important too), but making sure your pet is vaccinated and receives regular checkups. Responsible pet owners also protect their pets and their communities by making sure the pet is confined in a yard or on a leash, has adequate shelter in bad weather, and is licensed.
