Things to think about:

Space and Location

Is this space free from hazards? Poisons? Traffic? Wildlife or stray animals?

Food, Water, and Shelter

Are they able to access nutritious food, clean water, and be sheltered from weather? In times of cold weather, insure they have access to water that is not frozen.

Ability to Move Comfortably and Freely

Is the space large enough for the size of the pet? Are there safeguards in place to keep the animal from getting tangled or injured?
