The Sunbear Squad is very concerned about a new threat to our furfriends — the mortgage and foreclosure crisis.

PLEASE CROSS-POST THIS LIFE-SAVING MESSAGE

A note about the mortgage crisis: it has also created a crisis for some household pets of foreclosed-upon owners. The former homeowners leave their pets behind, trapped in empty homes, because they can’t take their pets with them for various reasons. They don’t understand that weeks or months may elapse before agents inspect the home.



Please take action when a home is foreclosed upon in your neighborhood. Be a Good Samaritan. Go stand near the home and call out repeatedly for the pet; it may bark or meow or come to the window. Listen and watch for signs of life. Do this several days in a row because some traumatized pets may be frightened, too frightened to respond at first. You may save a life!
