Within the last week, Pets Uniting People Society (P.U.P.S.) received two email requests about relinquishing pets. We are concerned. We realize there are situations that arise which cannot be helped and rehoming pets becomes necessary.

Although P.U.P.S. is not a rescue per se, it does alert local rescues that people and pets are in need. P.U.P.S. does not have the facilities to bring in homeless pets. However, if we cannot assist in the distress call, P.U.P.S. will give sources that may be able to help. In addition, we offer resources on ways they may be able to keep the pet in their home. It’s a difficult world out there. People become unemployed, have health issues, or their environment is just not conducive to having a pet anymore.

That’s why it is so important to think it through before acquiring a pet, realize the responsibility. It’s a decision that should not be taken lightly. Try to rehome the pet yourself before calling on a rescue or pet protection organization. When rehoming a pet, screen the people who are interested in your pet to make sure the home will be the best for the pet. You know your pet better than anyone, study the situation and use your “gut” instinct if something about the perspective adopters are just not right. Check references and visit the perspective adopters’ home to see where your pet will live. If someone is really interested in your pet, he/she will be cooperative in the adoptive process.

Lastly, when you can, support your local rescues.

Here are just a few local rescues that you may not have heard of that need your financial support:

Miami Valley Dog Rescue (this organization helped us with P.U.P.S. last homeless dog, Taz)
His Hands Extended Sanctuary
Backyard Dog Project
PAWS (Urbana)

When you can, offer a donation to these helping rescues so they can continue to help others. It’s just the right thing to do. Since you have access to a computer, do an Internet search on the rescue you desire to help. If you cannot locate their contact information, contact P.U.P.S. and we will give you their address, phone number and email.

There are alternatives to the Humane Society and Animal Welfare League. The world of rescue is much more diversified (massive) than it was just five years ago.

Check your options…don’t quit until you know your pet is safe and in a great home. A pet deserves more than a good home, it deserves a GREAT home! Don’t stop until you find it.

In review, P.U.P.S. is all about education, awareness, and responsibility in animal welfare. Give to our mission when you can. P.U.P.S. believes in trap-neuter-release for free roaming cats. Please neuter/spay your pet.
