The True Cost of Pet Ownership

  • Tuesday, May 15, 2018, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben County is partnering with Tanner’s P.A.W.S. of Corning to provide a free informational workshop called The True Cost of Pet Ownership.

Unfortunately many people do not take time to budget for a pet before acquiring that cute fuzzy face. This can lead to trouble because financially providing for your pet is a big part of being a responsible pet owner. With proper planning you can provide for your pet and live a long and happy life together. CCE Steuben Financial Educator Nancy Reigelsperger and Tanner’s P.A.W.S. will help you explore:

  • Things to consider before bringing home a pet
  • Pet Insurance
  • The importance of veterinary visits
  • Dog training and behavior modification

Tanner’s P.A.W.S. is an all-volunteer, no-kill, foster-based animal rescue. Their mission is to protect animal welfare and safety through rescuing, sheltering, adoption, education and population management. The workshop is free, but registration is required. Please call Cornell Cooperative Extension at 607-664-2300 to reserve a space.
