Savannah Morning News – August 25, 2017 Karen Harper, Pets for Life Coordinator
We love our pets and consider them to be part of the family, so when we face a heart-wrenching decision like finding a new home for our pet, it’s not one that’s made lightly. Before you consider surrendering or re-homing your pet, it’s helpful to assess the major reason why. Does your pet have behavior issues? Are there housing problems? Are you having trouble affording pet care? Don’t give up! The Humane Society for Greater Savannah’s Pets for Life program provides a stress-free means of keeping pets with families, where they are already safe, healthy and loved. To speak with our Pets for Life Coordinator about a list of services and resources, please contact our helpline: (912) 228-8010.
Once you’ve exhausted all resources and determined that rehoming your pet is the best option, here are some proactive strategies you can use to increase your chances of finding a home for your pet without them ever leaving your side.
As a last resort, the Humane Society for Greater Savannah is a managed, open admission shelter. We will accept owner surrendered pets by appointment which can be made by calling (912) 354-9515 or by visiting https://www.humanesocietysav.org./services/#surrender.
