Don't Forget About Your Pet

Some would say that our economy is currently in recession. Whether you agree with it or not, you will have heard that the economy outlook is not so good for 2008. With people concentrating on making payments to their adjustable rate loan rate they may not have money to pay for food for their beloved pets.

Some pets even become abandoned, according to Brian Adams, Spokesman for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Mr. Adams continues to say, "We've seen dogs that have either been chained up outside or left in the yard when the people have left, we've seen cats who are just set free''.

If you own a pet and can no longer pay for their food or shelter here are some places you can take your pet so they can find a new loving home.
    • Dedham branch: (781) 326-0729
    • Lower Cape Cod branch: (508) 255-1030
To find other shelters in your area, go to petfinder.com. Out in your zipcode on the left hand side to search for Animal Welfare Groups.

If you also have the time and resources available may I also suggest to use petfinder.com to find the pet you are looking for. That's how I found my rescue dog, and couldn't be more happier with her. I mean, who is going to say no to that face!
