* RE-HOMING YOUR PET *
We have always had a pet over-population problem, but now with more and more people losing their jobs and homes even beloved family pets are ending up in dog pounds and shelters. If you must re-home your pet, please remember these tips to help your pet find a safe place:
1) Start Early - as soon as you realize your pet needs a new home! Rescues and shelters are all full and it is very difficult to just "drop pets off" at a local shelter or rescue. Every animal that comes in may mean another one will die to make more room.
2) Use All Available Tools - the internet is great, but also run classified ads in your local newspaper and put up flyers around town on community bulletin boards. Here is a list of some of the bulletin boards in the Alliance area:
Kountry Korner of Maximo
Alliance Animal Hospital
Mount Union Mill
Pet Supplies Plus
County Line Vet
Louisville Post Office
3) Use Photos - pictures are the key! Put them online and on your flyers. Make sure they are nice, clear, close-ups.
4) Vet Your Pet - this makes them more attractive to rescues and adopters, especially if they are spayed and neutered. You can ask an adoption fee to help cover the expense.
There is one dog pound and one humane society that have facilities in Stark County, but there are several volunteers attempting to save as many lives as possible. We can network online to help place pets, and a good photo, description, location, and contact info helps. Please email this information if you need help.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
