Few tips how to find cat or dog a new owner

  1. Step  first:  not  to despair and not to lose hope. Despite the fact that a lot more homeless animals than potential homes for them, always there are people who are currently looking for a home a cat or dog
  2. Step two: to attach most effective animals out of the house, and not from the basement or boxes in the street. Potential owners are unlikely to want to take an animal home filthy, emaciated, infested with parasites and viral infections. This is especially true of kittens and puppies. Since an early age, the animal's immune system is still very weak, few people are eager to start communicating with the animal with its treatment and in case of failure, and the death of the animal in their eyes, especially if the family has small children. So if You have extended a helping hand to a homeless animal before looking for hosts, try to take him to his home, to tidy, to wash, to feed, to process from fleas and worms. If the animal is young (under one year), it must twice be vaccinated against infections and viruses. 
  3. Step three: take advantage of all information resources, from survey friends and relatives (even distant) to various Internet platforms and social networks. It is clear that proposals and announcements pristroystvo very much, so please try to have your stood out from the crowd. Here you'll appreciate the healthy appearance of the animal, shiny coat and clear eyes. Try to make a good quality picture of the animal in the home environment, in the game or funny situations. The people reading the Declaration must finally be tempted to take a cat or dog to hand, to stroke, to caress. Advertisement it is also advisable to be positive, with humor. In our region work well such Internet resources as ОLХ, Kharkov Forum, profile groups Vkontakte, Odnoklassniki and Facebook. You can also print listings with photos and put them up at the entrances of the stores (especially pet products) and vet clinics. There is a definite need for animals in rural areas, so give information to those who have relatives there and friends. If you still find the "good hands" can't, in extreme and exceptional cases you can contact the charity public animal shelters. But we should remember that in places of a mass congestion of animals street animal subjected to enormous likelihood of transmission of viral disease, followed by death, so to go there should be the last.
