There are many reasons why people chose to surrender their pet. Each circumstance is unique and there are many factors that you need to consider before making the decision to surrender. Ask yourself these questions:
Before making the decision to surrender your pet, it’s worthwhile considering whether you can change your circumstances so you can keep your animal.
Sometimes having a pet doesn’t work out the way you planned. For example, some animals have severe behavior issues that you may not be able to manage with your current lifestyle.
We encourage you to consider how keeping your pet may impact your, and your pet’s, quality of life now and into the future. Remember having a pet is a lifelong commitment; sometimes surrendering an animal to a shelter is the best welfare outcome for both you and them.
You will need to book an appointment to surrender your pet to RSPCA Victoria. This ensures that you have enough time to consider your decision and don’t feel pressure to make your choice on the spot.
