Making the decision to rehome a pet is one of the most heart-wrenching experiences any pet owner can go through. Here at Pet Rehoming Network, we recognize the tremendous emotional burden this decision usually carries with it. It’s not only a change in your pet’s life but a significant shift in yours as well.
Coping with Feelings of Guilt and Sadness When Rehoming a Pet
Feelings of guilt, sadness, or even failure are entirely normal in this situation, however it’s important to consider that rehoming can often be the most responsible and loving choice to make for your pet. If you are not able to meet your pet’s needs, and feel that your pet may be suffering as a result, it may be kinder to find them a new home where their needs can be met, and they can grow and flourish.
Even with this in mind, rehoming your pet can be a highly emotional terrain, and by utilizing our private pet rehoming services, the road can be much less difficult, both for you, and for your beloved pet.
