Pets Cost How Much????


What costs more to have as a pet each year?

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

Cat: $465

Rabbit: $715

Guinea Pig: $620

Small bird: $185

Goldfish: $20

I read about this in an article my mom gave me from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine, October 2012, page 71.
