At the DSPCA, our goal is to see companion animals remain in their homes as cherished family members.
When you choose to have a pet, you must also choose to be a responsible owner and love and provide for your pet for the rest of its life. We do understand that sometimes life gets rough and we have to make difficult decisions. In some cases, that means giving up a beloved pet.
We often see companion animals surrendered at our rescue and Rehoming Centre for behavioral problems. It is worth remembering that if the behaviour has only started recently there may be something physically wrong with your pet. Please contact your own Veterinary Surgeon or The Private Animal Hospital at the DSPCA on 014994780 for a full physical assessment of your pet. If there is nothing physically wrong with your pet, please contact our Dog Training Team for professional training advice on 014994795.
Please remember, you made a promise to your pet when you took it into your home. Your pet has provided you with a gift of love and although sometimes there are circumstances beyond our control, you owe it to your companion to do all that you can to ensure they are happy and healthy and remain part of your life.
