If you're facing foreclosure, it's very important that you start planning for your pets immediately. With more than 60,000 cats and dogs killed in Maricopa County every year due to lack of homes, there is just no quick solution to finding your animal companions a new home, except relinquishing them to a kill shelter. There, the odds are, they WILL be killed. Additionally, there is a hefty relinquishment fee at these "open access" shelters.

Simply turning them loose or leaving them in the home or yard is not only cruel, it is illegal, and face it - if you have to leave, it's likely because you owe someone money, so there is always a trail.
