At the SPCA, here are some of the common reasons why people decide to give up their pets:
- No time
- Relocating to another country
- Downgrading to a smaller apartment
- Animal behavioural problem
- Animal is unwell
At the point of surrendering, we often counsel and offer them other options. It could be persuading them to get the animals treated, speaking to an animal behaviourist and/or re-homing the animals on their own.
