Imagine you have heard that phrase before. I don’t really want to talk about turkeys, no, I want to talk about SURRENDERING your pet. Why do people continually feel they need a dog or a cat, and then end up surrendering them to animal control? I have heard all the excuses. I don’t have time for them, they shed too much, they have fleas, they go to the bathroom everywhere, I can’t afford to feed them etc. etc.
