Prevention, rather than reaction, is the best way to avoid having to surrender your beloved pet.

From low-cost veterinary care, to pet-friendly apartment solutions in the event of moving, to answers to behavior issue questions,

just taking the time to review your options could help you keep your companion.

Rehoming your pet may feel like the only option right now, but maybe all we need are resources to help make pet ownership easier through life changes.

One of the top reasons pets are surrendered is due to financial issues. Adopt-A-Pet has some amazing resources that can assist with the costs of pet-ownership.   

Spaying and neutering is the only way to help reduce pet overpopulation. The SPCA Albrecht Center offers affordable veterinary care & spay/neuter surgeries, including a voucher program for qualifying families.

The top reason for owner surrenders is 'moving.' Apartment List is a wonderful site to find pet-friendly apartments in your area.  The site offers pet policy details and 80% of their listings are pet-friendly.
