If you’re moving to another country, there’s a whole new mess of rules and regulations to research. Moving with pets is never easy, but if you’re not sure where to begin, here is a little information on moving and how your pets will fit into the picture.
Apartment and Other Rental Homes Can Be Tricky
It will certainly take you a little extra effort to locate a landlord or property management company that will permit pets, particularly larger dogs. Many of these facilities will place a limit on the species, quantity, and size of acceptable pets.
A small dog is typically the best bet for the prospective apartment hunter. If you have an elderly dog that requires special accommodations, the hunt can be exhausting. Though it can get frustrating, rest assured that you will be able to find a pet-friendly option.It just takes a little extra effort.
It is also important to note that you should never take advantage of the Emotional Support Animal system. An ESA has the legal right to live with their owner in any property. However, this rule exclusively applies to someone with a true disability who owns a pet that knows how to manage some of their symptoms. If you do not have a disability, do not attempt to claim your pet as an ESA. By doing so, you damage the believability of people who truly need these animals.
Can’t Take Your Pet?
Rehoming a beloved animal can be very painful for a doting owner. However, some animals are simply not able to withstand the move or will not be accepted at the new residence. At this point, the best you can do is find your pet a new loving owner.
