When imagining their next furry friend, just about everyone pictures a tiny kitten or a fluffy puppy. This means many of the less desirable — but equally sweet — pets in animal shelters get overlooked.

This adorably illustrated comic (found on Imgur) perfectly explains how to approach your next pet adoption.
