Finding a good home for your pet

If the circumstances don’t allow you to keep your beloved dog anymore, you will need to find a new home. You should keep in mind that the poor animal still depends on you do the right thing for him, so you need to make the right choice for his future happiness. No matter the reasons why you are forced to surrender your pet, you have to ensure that your family member is installed in the best home. Turning over the animal to a shelter or humane society is not an option because he can put down if no one wants him. You should spend every minute of your time trying to find him a responsible owner. Nonetheless, you should know from the very beginning that this will be anything but easy. You will have success if you advertise at, but you will also have to screen potential adopters.

Before contacting soul mates

For dogs it is particularly traumatising to lose their families, so you should really make sure that there is nothing you can do to accommodate the pet. The point is that giving up your animal is not a decision that you should make lightly. Carefully consider the reasons why he cannot live with you anymore. Let’s say that your dog has behavioural issues. Of course, there are not problems that you should ignore, but you should know that they can be fixed if you are willing to put in a little effort. You can get incredible results by taking the dog to obedience school. You can achieve the same results with patience. Sometimes, all the animal wants is attention. You will have to deal with the problem because if you are not willing to do this neither will the new owner and the dog may be put to sleep.

The decision has been made

People usually resort to placing an ad in the paper, but if you genuinely want to reach a wide audience, you should use online classified ads. The word of mouth really goes far and you will be able to reach a great number of people. When writing your description, make sure to include information such as breed, personality traits, and of course the requirements for the new home. To make your advertisement even more appealing, include an adorable photo of the pet. Your photo does not need to be a professional one, but it has to be appealing. Keep in mind that the audience is blasted with information every day, so you will have to compete for attention via photos.

How to interview adopters  

You should pay attention to the fact that classified ads may attract all kinds of people, so you should screen potential adopters to make sure that they are fit to be future owners. You have to get to know the adopters very well, so ask them if they have a pet, what kind of home they own and to provide references. Just to be on the safe side, you should visit the home of the person that seems interested in adopting your family member. Since going alone to a complete stranger’s home is dangerous, take someone with you.
