It can be very traumatic to be faced with the prospect of giving away your beloved dog. Of course, nobody adopts a pet with the intention of giving it away. But sometimes our life changes course unexpectedly and we are forced to find our dog a new, loving home. Maybe you have to give away your dog due to new living arrangements or money problems. Perhaps your dog has recently had a litter and you have to find each one of the little puppies a new home!
People often place ads in the newspaper or online in order to give away their dogs and puppies. The trouble is, though, how do you know if you are giving these animals a good home or not? Newspaper and Internet ads reach many different people, and some people with bad intentions comb through these ads with the intention of finding animals. You really never know if you are putting your dog in the care of an animal abuser, a dog fighter, or someone with similar intentions. No animal lover wants to think of these possibilities with any animal, especially man’s best friend.
Remember that while you can always talk to the person or family who is interested in taking the dog, you can never really know what kind of people they are. While they may seem friendly, how can you be sure? There is a way, however, to check a person’s background to see if they have ever been convicted of animal abuse. Click here to read about doing a phone number search to be able to tap into detailed people reports about someone.
If you have the phone number of the person to whom you are considering giving your pet, you can start with a reverse phone lookup. By obtaining the owner’s name and current address, you can verify if he is who he says he is. After that, you can stay in the reverse directory’s website and run other reports like background and criminal reports. Read more about the essentials of reverse phone lookups here.
Nobody ever wants to be forced to find his or her beloved dog a new home. And, without question, no one wants to give pets to someone who may mistreat them. It is unthinkable, but it is true that many animals are abused every day. By doing a little research on the person who might take ownership of your dog, you can have peace of mind and be assured that your animals will be safe. Seriously consider doing a reverse phone number lookup for the sake of your pet’s safety.
All dogs need to be loved, cuddled, fed and played with. When you give away a pet, wouldn’t you want to be sure that it is going to be treated well? Since dogs can’t stick up for themselves, it’s up to us to be their advocates.
