Pets Lose Their Lives When Owners Lose Homes

Today, in Dear Abby, a worker for a major lending company, wrote in telling about pets left behind after foreclosure. The employee has found many animals that have died from exposure or have starved to death. She said that it can be weeks before someone enters the foreclosed homes, after they are vacated. This is a slow horrible death.

These pets can easily be given to a rescue organization, ASPCA or a local shelter. If you have a foreclosed home in your neighborhood, make sure that the owners did not leave their pets behind. If you are facing foreclosure, don't leave your pets behind to fend for themselves. Give them a chance for a new life in a new home.
