What happens to pets when a person is homeless?

What happens to a pet when someone is homeless?  Well, first of all, more often than not, their pet is all that they have.  Many of the homeless shelters are not capable of taking in dogs… and for good reasons-many don’t have their vaccinations up to date, people who are in the shelters may have allergies to dogs and some are afraid of dogs.

We have been blessed with a rescue group that helps us with these situations.  When I know of families that have pets, I contact the rescue group, and the dogs are placed in a kennel at an undisclosed location, and if the dogs are smaller, the group has people that will keep the dog until the owner has a place to stay.

Being homeless not only affects the families, it affects the pets as well.  Just wanted to post this. It is on my heart.
