Did you know that “moving” is the number-one reason cited for pet abandonment? Both dogs and cats, on a huge, nation-wide scale, fall victim at move time.
Once relinquished at animal shelters, only the lucky ones have hope for adoption. Many are euthanized. My Move wanted to find out why moving is such a common reason for pet abandonment. We began by fielding a study on our site, asking an audience of recently moved people whether they had any pets, and if so, whether they were able to bring their animal(s) to their new home.
We found out that moving-related reasons include a new landlord not allowing pets, the new home not being appropriate for pets, an allergic housemate, and others. We also found resources and tips to help pet owners bring their furry friends along with them to their new home.
