When you move-take your pets!!!!

When you move-TAKE YOUR PETS!!! (yes, I am yelling!)

I participate in a freecycle group in my area. In the last week or so, I have seen that many animals are being offered to others for free, hence the freecycle group, and possibly without a thorough check on the person. One of which was a "beloved" dog who they have to "get rid of" (I HATE that phrase!) because they are moving.

There is absolutely no freaking reason to not bring your pets with you. It is a cop out. You just don't want to deal with the hassle of bringing them with you. My pets will always live with me until they pass. I have had them for 9 years and I will have them until the end.

There is no excuse for this. Pets are not disposable! There are ways to find housing that accepts pets for those who are renting and apartment, condo, etc. If you are buying your house, you can certainly have pets. I understand that it is a hassle to bring your pet with you if you are moving a long distance. You have to stop every so often to let them out to go to the bathroom and let them move around. Pet owners that truly love their animals and believe that animals are worthy of living would not think for a second of not taking their animals with them. My animals are like my children. I would never put my child up for adoption simply because I am moving.

Many people bring these animals to a shelter-and they are KILLED! Could you imagine bringing your sweet cat or dog to a shelter where they are scared to death? They are whisked from their soft, warm bed and familiar surroundings and "loving" people and are taken somewhere that is cold and unfamiliar. There are strangers there feeding them a different food and never getting out in the fresh air, not getting taken for walks. Then one day, someone comes in to your cage or run and takes you to a room where they have to forcibly hold you down to kill you. What would your last thought be?

What did I do wrong and why are my "parents" letting them kill me?

This happens everyday in every city.

It is a damn shame that our society is so shallow that they are willing to "get rid" of their animals to make their lives easier.

When puppies and kittens are killed at shelters, older animals have NO CHANCE of getting adopted.
