Comment on Rehoming a pet: How to cope with the grief by Jane.
This has been one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. And it was something that could have been prevented. A few months ago my mother decided she wanted to get puppies but there was no space for them and she couldn’t care for them properly. I begged her not to get puppies but she got them anyway. I tried not to get close to them but I also felt so bad that I ended up exercising and looking after them at times but I never fully committed. Because I can’t afford to look after puppies at the moment.
In the end I made such a scene that two days ago eventually she let us take them away to the SPCA ( animal shelter ) to be rehomed. Don’t think I can forgive what she did or the fact that she put me through this. It has been horrible these past two days. I keep remembering the look on their faces before we left. I pray that they are rehomed safely. I know it was the right decision but the pain is still there. Thank you for this article. I don’t feel as much guilt as before.
