Thousands of kittens and puppies, cats and dogs are settling in to their new homes around the country, after being adopted over the summer holidays.

The unconditional love of a pet comes with a price tag though, and it’s also going to be time consuming.

Lynn Freeman talks about the pitfalls and pleasures of pet adoptions with Auckland Animal Behaviourist Dr Elsa Flint. We also tour the Wellington SPCA and find out about the adoption process.
