Animal Shelter Offers Rent-to-Buy Pets
|August 10, 2010||Posted by Sandie under Pets, Rent2Buy Concept|
The program has been in place for about 3 months now, giving families a chance to get to know an animal before deciding to buy it. The Puppy and Kitty Sleepover Program allows families to take home a pet for up to 30 days.
Because they can try out a pet before they buy him, families will be able to get a feel for whether or not the animal fits into their home. So far, the program has helped about 40 families make informed decisions about adopting a pet.
Some families may not be ready for the responsibility of taking on a puppy, and won’t know this for sure until they’ve tried having the pup in their home for a period of time. When they realize that having a puppy does not fit into their life, a family can go back to the shelter and get an older dog instead.
The goal of the program is to have every animal find the right human bond. Allowing prospective pet owners to ‘try it before you buy it’ guarantees that both the animal and the owner get what they want.
