With thousands of animals for sale at any one time on the web, and more being added every day, prospective pet owners appear to have lucked out in being able to ‘pick and choose’ their perfect pup.
And for owners who find themselves with an unwanted animal for whatever reason, selling or giving a pet away online can feel like a quick, easy and ideal solution.
However, selling an animal through a third party site such as Gumtree risks their health, welfare and happiness – and can also be dangerous and costly for both buyers and sellers.
Mayhew recently were able to help Brave, Shadow and Loki - three handsome hounds - find their happily ever after, and rescue them from the pitfalls of online pet sales. Please see the attached press release for more details on these boys' stories, and to find out how we can support safer rehoming through our innovative
Rehome From Home scheme.
Please help us to spread awareness, and prevent even more animals being placed at risk.
