Foreclosure Pets

The economy impacts everything — even pets.

A growing number of animals are becoming victims of the economic downturn and the housing foreclosure crisis. Animal shelters, rescue groups and animal care and control agencies are seeing an increase in surrendered animals as homeowners struggle to make living arrangements that may or may not include their pets.

To help homeowners, mortgage lenders and shelters address the needs of companion animals during this difficult time, American Humane offers several downloadable resources (see the box below).
