There are many reasons why animals end up in a shelter. One of the most common reasons is due to unexpected life changes. Pet owners run into all kinds of unexpected problems that affect taking care of their pets. Personal problems is top on the list for pet owners taking their family pet to the shelter.

According to surveys conducted by organizations dedicated to tracking why pets end up in shelters, the cost factor associated with pet care is one of the most common reasons why people take their pets to a shelter. These costs can add up if you calculate veterinarian, food and, grooming expenses. Other expenses can also include medical treatments for special needs for certain pets. Not to mention that if you would like to properly maintain a dog or cat, bedding, toys and treats are also a part of the equation for a happy and healthier life. While there are low-cost veterinarians, some individuals still face difficulties in providing enough care for their pets.
