    Unfortunately, some of these pets come with their own baggage. They may have been abused. They may be scared of people. Before bringing home a rescue dog, cat and other animals, study our practical advice on how to help them settle in.

    Our course, written by experienced veterinarian Dr. Pippa Elliott, is designed to show you how to cope with an adopted dog and other rescue animals. Dr. Elliott gives solid advice on dealing with any first night nerves and introducing your new arrival to the rest of the family. Know what to expect when adopting a new dog or cat.
