Having to relinquish a family pet can be an overwhelming and detrimental experience for both you and your animal. Please exercise all options and explore all resources before deciding to drop your pet off at a municipal shelter.
Be creative, positive and persistent. There are many animals needing homes at any one time, so finding a home can take some work. But, there are good homes out there, so try to maintain a positive attitude. Explore all options you can think of for finding a home - creativity and persistence are usually rewarded.
Remind yourself that you are this pet's best option for finding a new home. You might think shelters or rescue groups would be more adept at placing the pet because we have experience, facilities, screening guidelines, etc. But, an individual, particularly one who knows the animal, can focus all his or her efforts on that pet, provide the most information to prospective adopters, and best determine the appropriateness of a new home.
