Default The Other Part of The Problem.

Yes, spaying and neutering is all well and good. The other part of the
problem that everyone shrugs off is that, there are very few pet
friendly rentals. This is a major problem. What good is spaying and
neutering when people have to give up their pets because the landlords,
who by the way, also belong and work for rescues, won't let them own a
pet. So then people start to abandon them either to the shelters or
the streets. Does this make any sense to anyone out there? I could go
on and on about seeing both sides of the rental thing. Some kids are
just as destructive. Why don't they have a Kid Deposit? Please. This
is all nonsense. My pets are just as much a part of my family as my
kids. More pets would be placed if it weren't for the cold-hearted
landlords.

I wouldn't chalk it up entirely to "cold-hearted landlords" do your kids
shed all over the house? Do your kids leave pee stains on the lawn (maybe
your dog doesn't either, but its something to consider from a landlord's
point of view, as it affects the rental potential in the future).

Personally having rented a place out, I would only allow a dog if I trusted
the owner to be responsible with it. If moving, perhaps a good reference
from previous landlords where the dog was kept would help.

We rented for years and we decided to get our own house so we didn't have to
find a pet friendly rental again. We pay less for our mortgage then renting
a house, if our babies feel the erg to dig and bury their toys while outside
I don't care, they need to play too. To me digging in the yard is not a
behavior problem digging out of the yard is.

I know a lot of people do not have a choice circumstances change and cause
problems that's different. Yet I looked for rental places anywhere from 6
months to a year before our leases were up so we could get a pet friendly
place, that's how important my furbabies are to me. Now I have three cats
and two dogs. I hope circumstances don't change so that I can keep them all,
but if they do I already have temp homes for them in case I have to move.
These homes will hold them until I can get them back or place them. They are
a part of my family and I work hard to keep them. They are all special needs
but one.

So I know from experience how hard finding a pet friendly place is and let
me tell you it is possible to do, you have to have drive, determination and
never give up. Most people I know who give up there pets didn't start
looking until the month before their lease was up. So their pets all got
sent to new homes, the pound or I took them and the SPCA placed them. I end
up with allot of misplaced pets, due to divorce, and just plane laziness.
Very few animals I have seen in shelters were due to death, or moving, most
were due to unable to confine, unable to control or get this having baby. I
got a dog as a companion while my daughter was little. I wanted her to know
the joys of having an animal companion in the home. I have also taught many
children how to be gentle with animals due to having a companion in my home.
Some people have good reasons and others have excuses.

I think that about sums it up, and the way to think about those with
excuses, is hopefully the animal is better off not in the company of the
people who make excuses.

My guy has about 4 families ready and willing to take him, if ever he is in
need of a home (but you can be darned sure it would have to be a pretty
incredible reason before I even considered giving him up).
