Comments Off on pandemic pets

It’s unfortunately true that more “pandemic pets” are ending up in shelters as the pandemic continues. While many people have found comfort and companionship in pets during the pandemic, some are realizing that pet ownership is a long-term commitment that requires a lot of time, effort, and resources.

There are several reasons why more pandemic pets are ending up in shelters:

  1. Lack of planning: Some people may have adopted pets impulsively during the pandemic without fully considering the long-term commitment involved in pet ownership. They may not have made adequate plans for the care of their pets once the pandemic ends.
  2. Financial difficulties: The pandemic has caused financial hardship for many people, and some may no longer be able to afford the cost of pet ownership. This could include the cost of food, veterinary care, and other expenses.
  3. Change in living situations: As the pandemic continues, some people’s living situations may change. They may need to move to a smaller space or return to work outside the home, which could make it more difficult to provide adequate care for their pets.
  4. Behavioral issues: Pets that were adopted during the pandemic may not have had the opportunity to socialize with other animals or people, which could lead to behavioral issues that make them difficult to care for.

It’s important to remember that pets are living beings that require long-term commitment and care. If you are considering adopting a pet during the pandemic, it’s important to carefully consider your ability to provide for the pet’s needs for the entirety of its life. If you are no longer able to care for your pet, surrendering it to a reputable animal shelter or rescue organization is a responsible choice.
