There are many reasons people may feel like they are forced to surrender their pets. One of the most common reasons is also one of the most preventable - Moving. PLANNING AHEAD is the key to success!
It's likely you simply aren't aware of options and resources available to help you keep your pet with you as you transition to a new home. Even if a landlord states "no pets" or has breed restrictions, there may be ways to address and overcome these obstacles.
