It Is Not Wrong To Rehome Your Pet When You Are Tr..

 


It is not wrong to rehome your pet when you are truly no longer able to take care of him/her. Better rehome than dump. However, it is important how you go about it. Yesterday someone sent us a private message seeking urgent rehoming of their uncle’s pet dog Terry. The reasons given were valid enough – Terry’s owner and his daughter – were gravely ill and cannot take care of the active young dog anymore. However, the person also stated that Terry will be sent to the MPSJ pound as a last resort. This was very troubling. Upon probing, the lady’s daughter said she was aware what happens to dogs at the pound as she had removed some dogs from there herself. So, why was it stated that Terry would be sent to the pound? Let’s look at two possible reasonings.

1. The lady who posted has no compassion in her heart. As far as she is concerned, if no one takes her Uncle’s dog – he must be removed at all cost even of it means sending him to the death hole they call MPSJ pound.

2. She was blackmailing dog lovers and rescue groups into taking the dog. This is a very thoughtless and not so clever move. Animal rescuers are faced with much depressive news and sights daily – why do you see the need to add on to it? And you were wrong to think that you could use emotions to manipulate dog lovers in taking Terry in. It has badly backfired on you.

A note to all – WHEN YOU SEEK TO REHOME YOUR DOG, DO NOT EVER GIVE RESCUE GROUPS AND DOGS LOVERS THE ULTIMATUM THAT YOU WILL SEND THE DOG TO THE POUND IF THEY DON’T TAKE IT IN SPITE OF KNOWING WHAT AWAITS THERE. IT IS BOTH CALLOUS AND SHALLOW. PEOPLE WILL HATE YOU FOR IT.

Now, who can take Terry in until we can find him a good home?
