Budgeting for Pet Ownership - Infographic
Owning a pet is a great experience for many families. However, pet ownership is also a serious financial commitment. The average medium-sized dog or indoor cat has a lifetime cost of over $10,000. Even caring for a goldfish can add up to over $500 over the years. Potential pet parents should budget for these costs before bringing a new furry, feathered or scaled addition into their home to ensure the animal will have proper care for the entirety of its life.
