Alternatives to Consider
Before you decide to surrender your pet, please first consider utilizing the following resources:
- Check out our dog and cat behavior tips. Litter box issues, scratching, chewing, digging and other behavior issues often can be reduced or eliminated.
- Check with relatives or friends who may be willing and able to provide your pet with a responsible, loving home.
- If your pet is a purebred, an online search can help find local breed specific rescue groups.
- Finding a pet-friendly apartment may take a little more effort, but today there are many more rental options for people with pets. Try visiting one of many websites tailored to the needs of pet owners, such as rent.com, peoplewithpets.com or ApartmentList.com. Such websites save you time and effort by allowing you to search for "pet friendly" apartments in various communities, in your target price range, with the amenities you specify.
