"If someone does feel they need to place their animal, they should make every effort to find it a safe and loving home," explains Dori Scofield, vice president of Guardians of Rescue, an organization dedicated to helping animals in need. "It is all too easy for the animals to fall into the wrong hands."
While the odds at these over-crowded are against the animals, things are often not much better outside of a shelter, either. Whether the animal ends up in a good home often depends on the route that a person takes in getting rid of the pet. There are people out there that look for free animals so they can sell them off to research, use them in dog fights, or use them in other abusive ways.
There are ways that pet owners can help to keep the animal out of the wrong hands, including by:
"The best thing to do is first try to keep your pet and address the issue at hand," added Scofield. "After exhausting those avenues, if you still need to re-home the pet, always take these precautionary measures to help keep it safe when it leaves your house. It makes a big difference in assuring that the animal can continue to live out its life in a healthy, happy home."
