I pledge to:

  • Make a lifetime commitment to my animal companion
  • Adopt animals only through responsible rescues and ethical breeders
  • Spay or neuter my animal companion for their health and to prevent overpopulation
  • Provide nutritious food, fresh water and daily exercise for my animal companion
  • Care for the emotional needs of my animal companion
  • Understand and work through my animal companion’s behavioral issues
  • Treat my animal companion with compassion and gentleness
  • Report suspected animal abuse or neglect
  • Call myself and others "guardians" rather than “owner”
  • Encourage others to embrace guardianship
