While we love the idea of
having pets in our homes and lives few of us are prepared for
the various changes that must be implemented for these animals
to live with us. When this happens many people will just
abandon their pets. Sometimes this happens when the pet loses
it baby appeal or when the novelty of having a pet has worn

way to an animal shelter.
These animal shelters have

for the full responsibility of their care. This care includes
seeing to the food, toys, medical and health requirements of
the pets. In addition the happiness, emotional and mental
conditions of the pets need to be addressed.

period. After the animal’s happiness is assured the animal
shelter staff will allow the animal to go to its new homes.
These are the services that animal shelters provide to the many
animals that are in need of a loving family.
