A pet-less house is just a cold shell we occupy, while one with a pet is a warm home.
Now before you all go sprinting out the door with money at the ready, keep in mind that raising a pet is a huge responsibility.
The simple fact is this: raising a pet is serious business and if you aren’t serious about it then don’t do it. However, if you have a lot of love to give, as well as the time and energy required to raise a pet, go for it. Here is a guide on where to purchase pets, which animal clinics you can take them to, when they need vaccinations and medical care, and where to pick up food.
Where You Can Buy Pets in Wuhan.
However, if you want a healthy pet to take home, avoid most street and bus vendors.
In Wuhan there are way too many small shops to even try to mention all of them here. Instead, I have decided to mention the largest one in the city and, as it turns out, in central China – Flower and Bird Market. It has garnished a ton of positive feedback from both locals and foreigners living in Wuhan.
Transportation: Take bus line 60, 516, 526, 527, 550, 550 and get off at Huangpudajie on Yanjiang Avenue (沿江大道黄埔大街站).[/vc_cta]
In this big market you can purchase pets, birds, potted plants, flowers, antiques, artworks, calligraphy pieces, and paintings.
Location: Xingfucun, Dijiao, Hankou (汉口堤角幸福村)
Transportation: Take Metro Line 1, and get off at Dijiao Station, or take bus line 211, 212, 253, 509, 634 and get off at Youhu on Dibian Road (堤边路游湖站).[/vc_cta]
