As a real estate professional Holly has sadly seen abandoned pets in foreclosed upon properties. The animals are usually dehydrated, hungry and scared.
Many homeowners don’t know their options. They don’t respond to the mail from the banks and when the bank representative knocks at the door, owners run . . . abandoning the property and sometimes even their pets! If you have a stack of unopened mail or if you are receiving collection calls, please know there is help! Many Banks are cooperating to help keep homeowners in their home, allowing a short sale or other measures to AVOID foreclosure. Call my office today for a free consultation.
If you decide to leave the property please don’t leave your pet behind, contact Foreclosed Upon Pets, Inc. (FUPI). Volunteers help foster dogs and cats until a loving home is found.
