The problem of abandoned pets in foreclosures is a problem nationwide. Here in Ocean County, NJ two people were brought up on charges for abandoning their pets after foreclosure. Unfortunately by the time it was discovered all the pets had died.
I can think of little else that ANGERS me to the point of actually wanting to PHYSICALLY HURT someone more than finding an animal that has been abandoned by humans who once were its' caretaker.
I have been in real estate for over 20 years, and virtually all of that time been specializing in REO, bank foreclosures and distressed properties. I have been in THOUSANDS of abandoned properties, from the most modest mobile homes to the most lavish multi-million dollar mansions, and they all have one thing in common: people. REAL PEOPLE were once in them living real lives, with real children and real toys, sleeping in real beds, laughing at real supper tables, and real family pets running through the house and in the yard...
When we arrive on scene to MANY of these properties that folks have left, we are astounded to find what they have left behind. We can find everything from family photos to nice antique furniture. But the absolute worst is an abandoned pet! . I wonder how anyone could ever leave a part of their family behind like that? One of the abandoned pets I found was a young dog. If we hadn't come a long, would he have died before someone took him home with them? He was tied to post with no shade, no water and no food.. It was in the summer and the temperatures were in the 90s... One of my buyer's agents took him home to love.. She named him "Mojo" .. He has made a great addition to her family
The above photo leads to a website where you can go to adopt pet that were abandoned, or post pets you have or have found that need a home.
