Subject: Sound Familiar? Pass these VOID excuses far and wide!
When you care about animals, work with, or rescue them, you can't stomach
people's excuses as to why they "suddenly can't care for" their own. You
are essentially telling us that for whatever lame reason you come up with;
you no longer wish to be responsible for your pet. Here are solutions..
Be responsible enough to take care of a baby AND a pet. You had your pet
first. This is called being an adult! The thought of someone giving up
their loving pet, especially after having this animal for years, is just
heartbreaking. Animals don't need your excuses. They need family they can
If you are allergic, you knew this before. You don't suddenly become
deathly allergic to them one day. Most people are allergic to pollen or
mold, don't always blame it on a pet. If you will simply wipe your cat or
dog down each day with a damp cloth, problem solved. The true allergy is to
the dander, not the fur itself. "Dusting off" your pet daily can prevent

pointless things. Anyone can find 10 minutes at the end of a day, to sit

pressure! Your pet has been waiting for you all day.
The least you can do is spend time with them. For all the people you
encounter or talk to all day that may not deserve your time, your pet is
always deserving of it. Pets don't want your excuses; they only want you
to love them.
For all the people who dump their dogs and cats off at a shelter, be ashamed
of yourselves. When you are driving away, leaving your pet behind to grieve
and likely end up euthanized, take a few moments to reflect on what an
asshole you are.
The reality is when you dump off your animal, regardless of the reason, they
don't know know WHY. They are waiting for you to return; to take them
home. They often whine, cry and even yelp as if in pain because you
When you never show up or it sinks in that you aren't coming back, they
become severely depressed, often refusing to eat. This is the sight
irresponsible people spare themselves, while shelter workers have to care
for and comfort your grieving pet.
Animals show us unconditional love. Show them love and respect in return.
