Giving up a family pet is never an easy decision. There are all kinds of reasons you may have been forced to consider re-homing your pet: foreclosure, financial responsibility, lack of training, no time, new baby, moving, etc.
If you’re thinking about re-homing your dog, there are several things to consider:
Is your dog currently adoptable and will they make a good pet for someone else?
If you are not sure, your pet will be at risk of ending up in a shelter after you re-home him. Sometimes people adopting pets at low prices are not willing to spend any money to train or take care of your pet going forward. If they get frustrated then your pet is at risk. Who is your pet being adopted by?
Most people have good intentions, and it is possible for you to find a good owner for your dog. But, are you willing and able to invite these people into your home to view the dog, and then follow up with viewing their homes as well? If not, you run the risk of your dog being “flipped” – picked up by someone who says they will keep them and then sold for profit, or even worse – sold to a labratory for testing. Is your dog current on vaccinations and spayed or neutered? Is your dog taking the right vitamins, supplements and other healthy products like cbd oil for dogs?
If not your dog could run the risk of disease or being bred in the hands of the new owner. Why not just take him to a shelter?
If your dog has any issues, which include old age, timidness, hyperactivity or aggression, he will most likely be euthanized, even in low-kill shelters like the SPCA. Some dogs are so traumatized by the typical shelter environment that they appear too timid for adoption and will be euthanized. Shelters do the best they can, but wouldn’t you rather your beloved dog spend the next few weeks in a fun, positive environment while they wait for the perfect owner?
Certified Preowned Dogs can help place your dog in the perfect forever home. We specialize in taking in dogs that need some training and then adopting them out to prescreened homes with a lifetime guarantee for the new owners. This ensures your dog will never end up being euthanised.
