The largest number of abandoned pets occurs during the moving season. In July, it's not rare to find cats or dogs in deserted apartments, when not in the street or in nature. Moreover, some homeowners, not knowing where to place their pet while they are on vacation, abandon their pet at this time. Keep this in mind: a pet is for life!Don't abandon your pet on the street
Don't abandon your cat or dog on the street or in nature. Not only is it heartless, but it's also cruel. Most of the time, it will die of cold, hunger, illness or will be simply run over. Pets aren't equipped to survive in an urban setting or in the great outdoors.You're responsible for your pet
It's your responsibility to find a new home for your pet if you can't keep it any longer. It is wrong to believe that your pet may find a new home without your assistance. Inform you friends, your family or place an ad in the newspaper or on the supermarket or pharmacy bulletin board. Find your pet a new home.The pet patrol can help you
Rather than leave your pet in an empty apartment or on the street, contact the pet patrol at 514 367-1000; however, with this last resort, you must bear in mind that your pet will no doubt be put to sleep should no new home be found.
