If you could no longer take care of your small animal, would you give it to this place?
The reason I am asking is b/c I really want to start up an animal rescue. I would rescue small animals (like guinea pigs, rabbits, gerbils, mice, hamsters, rats, birds, etc…) from people that can no longer take care of them. I have the experience (with a lot of animals of my own), and basically, I know I can do it. I would not take in any more than I can handle though. And I would start it up right now if I can convince my dad, lol 🙂
Anyways, I have seen a lot of people give up their pets that they can no longer take care of. And there’s this one website I go on (called kijiji.com) where you can sell (or give away) anything locally, and A LOT of people are advertising their pets for free, and they just need them gone. So what I would do is take in the animals (but making sure the people know that I am a rescue), and I would basically take them in, make sure they are able to be adopted out, and then adopt them out 🙂 Oh, and I would keep the owners that surrendered the pet to me know how their pet is doing, and when it is adopted out 🙂
Sooooo….haha, my question is:
If you had a small animal that you could no longer take care of (AND BESIDES GIVING IT TO A FRIEND!!! I posted this b/c and obviously people couldn’t read, lol), would you either…
1.) Give it to a petstore or shelter
2.) Advertise it on a website/newspaper saying it needs a good home
3.) Give it to a rescue place (like I’m doing), guaranteed to find it a good home (without you waiting to find him a home yourself)
Please be honest, thank you!!
