Here's a frugal date idea for you and your loved one: adopt a pet for a day!

Did you know that many local pet rescues will let you adopt a pet for a day? This Frugal Date Friday is all about the two of you plus one: a furry friend!

Contact your local pet rescue to see if they offer daily pet adopting. You’ll be able to hang out with a dog or cat for the day while you bond with your spouse over the new challenge of caring for an animal. Plus, if you’ve been thinking about getting a pet, this will be a great way to get your feet wet!

If you already have a pet, see if any puppies or kittens are available. Nothing can de-stress you more than having a cute puppy to play with.

      I have never heard of such a thing. I don’t know any rescue that would let you do this. But visiting a shelter is a good idea.

        Call around and ask there are a number of them that are. Their hope is that you will fall in love on your date and adopt them. But either way you got to snuggle a puppy and they got some love and attention for the day.

      Rescues are in need of foster families. If you aren’t sure if a pet is the right way to go, this is a great way to find out and help an animal in the process! If you are interested in possibly adopting your foster, the rescue will let you know when there is an inquiry them so you have the choice to adopt first.
