I love animals so much. Yes, you can tell from my Twitter profile that I love birds and nature, but I also have a great affinity for house pets.
I am worried about what will happen to the millions of house pets around the world, and especially in my country, the good ol’ United States of America. I hope the house pets will continue to have a loving home.
It’s going to be hard enough for people to have sufficient money for food, shelter, and other necessities. I try not to think about what might happen to the dogs, cats, snakes, hamsters, guinea pigs, iguanas, birds, and all other types of domesticated animals who may not be the highest of priorities these days.
What can you do if you can no longer afford your pet?
- Place an advertisement to sell your pet
- Offer your pet for free to a good home
- Ask family members if they can care for them for a while until you are in a better financial place
- Contact your local animal shelter to see if they can help
- Call your city or county zoo for advice
- Research free samples of food for your pet, or provide off-brand types of food
- Continue caring for your pet as long as it is with you
What should you not do with your pet with your personal situation becomes difficult and you can no longer afford your pet?
- Please don’t neglect your pet
- Please don’t drop off your pet far away and then drive off
- Please don’t hurt your pet
- Please don’t let your pet run away
Please remember that animals want happy lives. They want food, water, and a safe place to live. They want to be loved and cared for, and they also like fun and recreation. Please remember to take care of them. If you can’t, try to help them find a new forever home.
