SPCA Canterbury is receiving a high number of calls from owners wanting to surrender their pets especially as many responsible owners are being uprooted by earthquake repair works and are running out of options. We realise that making the decision to rehome your pet is an extremely tough one and it may be for reasons out of your control i.e. financial or relocation.
To help us focus our time and resources on helping animals that need us the most, we need the help of pet owners to explore all options to find a new home for their pets. Below are some tips to help with that process:
First of all, make sure the information you display about your pet is as descriptive as possible and you include his/her age, gender, whether they have been desexed, breed and any health issues. Use a photograph that is as clear and up to date as possible.
We would recommend you start the rehoming process as soon as possible once you have decided you can no longer keep your pet.
