Animal Advocates of Moore County would like to know what you would do if tomorrow you unexpectedly lost your job?
You have, say, two to four animals, and a wife or husband, and at least two children, with no job prospects in sight. Or you are a senior and you have one or two animals and you know time is limited for you, and your animals may outlive you.
Have you made provisions for them as if they were your own family in both cases? People make provisions for the people and belongings they will leave behind, but rarely consider the pets they love as if they are their own family.
We think an adjustment needs to be made in the actual thinking, planning and remembering for your animals. Animal Advocates has been hit with an influx of animals, and especially cats, from owners who have died or lost jobs.
We would like to ask that people plan ahead. No, you may not be dying or losing your job, but things could happen at any moment, and you can no longer take care of your animals. Please, take some time to make plans for your pets’ well-being if you can no longer care for them or be in their lives. We are dealing with both these scenarios right now.
Animals can become depressed, just like people, if they lose their favorite person through no fault of their own. Please plan for your pet’s future and not just love them right now. True love is for the expanse of their lives, not just yours.
