What is an Animal Rescue Group?
Animal rescue organizations are often formed to take in rescued animals and prepare them for adoption. Many of these animals have come from difficult circumstances and have been abandoned, lost, or even harmed. However, animals frequently come from loving homes where the current pet parents are no longer able to care for their furry family member for one reason or another. Whatever the circumstances that send an animal to a rescue group, the animal rescue group performs a vital role in the community.
The majority of animal rescue groups are non-profits with a limited staff and a volunteer team. These volunteers perform an important service by assisting vulnerable animals. Such groups usually rely on community donations, not just cash gifts, but also blankets, pet toys, and other supplies required to care for animals prior to rehoming them.
What to do if you need to surrender an animal?
If you need to rehome a family pet, it’s not easy, it’s upsetting, and you might not know where to begin. Talking to your veterinarian is a good place to start. Veterinarians can give recommendations and are often familiar with caring and humane rescue groups in the region that can help make this terrible time easier for you and your pet.
Avoid placing classified ads. While you might get lucky and find a lovely home, many of the animals offered on sites like Craigslist have become victims of cruelty and neglect, and have been rehomed to backyard breeders, hoarders, dog-fighting rings, or other criminal groups. Professional rehoming services, such as Rehome With Love, offer a loving, caring option in which pet parents who are no longer able to care for an animal can gently transfer their cherished pet to a new loving family who is well-suited for the furry family member.
