In California, the foreclosure crisis has not only resulted to families becoming homeless. In its wake, it also left behind a lot of abandoned animals such as horses.

The state was definitely hit hard by the mortgage meltdown, resulting to literally millions of homes in some stage of foreclosure as well as plummeting home prices. As of September, Californiaís foreclosure rate is at one filing for every 189 homes. It closely follows Nevada and Florida.

According to animal control officers, abandoned animals have been turning up everywhere and when traced, were found to be owned by homeowners facing foreclosure. These distressed homeowners are actually pre-occupied with their mortgage problems and have not been able to properly care for their animals.

Some of the owners have decided to give their animals up for adoption while some drop off their pets to the nearest animal shelter. Many of the owners have decided to do this because most of the rental units they will be moving into do not allow animals. It is indeed an unfortunate fate for these animals and many animal rights activists are saddened with the news.

Distressed homeowners who have pets should realize that by abandoning their pets, they are basically making things worse for the community. In addition, it also put the health of the entire neighborhood at risk.

If you are about to lose your home to foreclosure, you should make sure that your pets will have somewhere to go. Although at this point, you might be focused on how to avoid foreclosure, it will be best if you have a fall back plan for your pet in case things did not turn out as you want.

Again, bringing your pets to an animal shelter and putting them up for adoption might be a good idea. Just make sure that you provide the shelter a complete list of your petís health records for the benefit of the new owners.
