When You Can No Longer Care for Your Pet

Help During Hardship

Each day, many pet owners face a heart-wrenching decision – having to give up their pets because they can no longer care for them. But they may not have to. There are resources that can help in every situation, and they keep getting better with each passing day.

In the past, people often had to surrender their pets when hardships arose. Now, many support service organizations strive to keep people and pets together, even if they require temporary care from someone else in between. That means you may not have to surrender your pet, unless you ultimately feel that’s the best option for them.

Whether you or someone you know is facing a hardship related to:

  • Finances
  • Domestic violence
  • Homelessness
  • Aging
  • Military service

You can find the support you need to ensure your pet receives the care they need. And this list is only the beginning – the Animal Humane Society Pet Helpline can provide direction for every situation that arises.

Life can come with ups and downs, and most of them are entirely out of our control. But that shouldn’t mean you have to give up your pet.

If you need help, contact the Animal Humane Society Pet Helpline at 952-HELP-PET (952-435-7738) or send them a message online today.
