We know that sometimes life doesn’t go to plan and that can mean struggling to cope with a pet.
At AWL, we want to work with you to keep your pet at home if at all possible.
Look at all the other options first
Handing over your pet to AWL should be a last resort once you’ve exhausted all other options.
What's the issue?
If it’s a health issue, talk to your vet first of all, if it’s a behaviour problem phone one of our qualified trainers for advice or an individual behaviour appointment.
Talk to us by calling 8348 1300.
Many Vet clinics will be happy to talk to you about any problems you may be having. Find a vet
They may refer you onto a behavioural expert or trainer if they believe it may be a training problem. Some behavioural issues are a result of or a symptom of an undiagnosed medical problem, so it is definitely worth having a talk to your local vet.
Have you had a discussion with the landlord about a pet bond? Some landlords and/or land agents won’t allow pets in their rental properties as a blanket rule, but it may be worth discussing the option of signing and paying a pet bond in order to be allowed to keep you pet with you.
Struggling to afford it?
Have you thought about any other areas of your life that you can reduce expenses? We know it is often not easy getting by especially when you have many mouths to feed, both human and animal! But sometimes it is in other areas that we can make adjustments that might mean being able to continue to care for your pet.
