    Default The "Re-Homers"

    Saw this on FB. Thought it was worth sharing:

    Christmas Warning:

    In about 4 to 12 weeks after Christmas we are going to be seeing the "We need to re-home our pet" posts. These are the folks who purchased puppies or kittens as Christmas gifts who are suddenly allergic, moving, having baby, don't have time, their kids won't take care of it, didn't think they'd get so big (etc....)


    To these people I say:

    *You didn't know you had an allergy? oops. Don't let the pet suffer. Get allergy medicine.

    *You're moving? what city are you moving to that doesn't allow dogs? ~ find a house/ apartment / condo that will ALLOW your furry family member. PERIOD.

    *Oh...you had no idea you were due to have a baby in 2 months? interesting. Get a dog trainer and suck it up buttercup, you're a pet mom and a human mom now, millions deal with this daily and manage just fine and so will you if you decide to. so just decide to do it.


    *Don't have time for one 15 minute walk or a few minutes to brush the cat? Don't have time to have a dog or cat just sit next to you while you're home? Really? So they're better off in a shelter than waiting in your house for you to get home? ok....get another dog or cat to keep them company. Find a solution that lets them stay in your home, it really isn't that difficult.


    *Oh....you mean your 5 year old didn't step up to the plate to feed, walk, and scoop poop? And this surprised you? I guess it's time for you to step up and be the model of responsibility for your own child.


    *Wrong Size? Not cute as an adult? Not quite the personality you expected? Look in a mirror... How'd you turn out? Should we send you back or make you homeless? Grow up, you chose to bring this puppy or kitten home, not the other way around....but you can bet "that" dog or cat would lay down his life for you.. can you say the same for him or her?


    I didn't make this post to offend anyone, but rather to open eyes, and take responsibility for those without a voice that had no choice in being a gift for Christmas.

    Our previous dog was named Christmas when we got her. She would have been an adorable little round ball of cute on Christmas morning when she was given as a gift. We got her months later from the shelter as a lanky near adult. Totally untrained. Ate shoes. Many shoes. Was one of the most lovely dogs ever and a total natural when it came to herding on the farm. RIP Chrissy.
