For kids who love animals by a kid who loves animals
A) A big, loveable dog, or
B) A cute little bunny.
If you guessed dog, you guessed wrong.
A big dog can cost $585 to take care of every year. The bunny will cost you $715 — $415 for its litter alone.
So before you pick a pet, think about what you and your family can afford!
Here are the yearly costs for different kinds of pets:
Small dog: $320
Medium dog: $425
Large dog: $585
Guinea Pig: $620
Small bird: $185
I read about this in an article my mom gave me from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine, October 2012, page 71.
