In Western New York, the co-founders of Better Together Pet Resource Center have seen beloved pets regularly surrendered to animal shelters and rescue groups. Oftentimes, the reason is because the owner cannot afford treatment of a pet's medical problem, grooming, training classes, or emergency boarding.
Another reason for surrender is when an owner cannot access
pet-friendly housing. When this happens, the bond between animal and person/family is severed and all involved endure heartbreaking consequences.
Better Together Pet Resource Center prevents this trauma through impactful advocacy, sharing of information and provision of subsidized services.
