What happens if an expat (family) relocates and abandons their pet without making arrangements?

Sometimes there are unforeseen circumstances why an expat or expat family leaves behind their pet, eg older pets might not be fit to travel long flights. However, sometimes people abandon their pet without making arrangements.

Leaving behind your adopted pet because he will be inconvenient is cruel. By passing an animal on to others after a few years, you’re effectively asking someone else to solve your problem.

Keep in mind that animals are upset when owners leave them behind. Many animals in Nairobi (especially dogs) get new owners every 2 to 3 years. Treating animals like hand-me-downs may cause anxiety and changes in character
