We asked Kasasa team members what they’re most thankful for, and here’s what some of us had to say:
The love of a pet is an invaluable gift, but the benefits of pet ownership do come at a price. Whether you adopt from a local shelter or rescue organization, or you purchase from a breeder, you can expect to face a lifetime of annual expenses, along with the initial cost of bringing your pet home.
