We are getting ready to emigrate and can not leave without my animals. Necessary vet shots for rabies, de-worming and titre tests are already expensive. After all this we still have to purchase crates to enable them to fly. Relocation agencies are making it impossible for people to take their animals with when emigrating. Costs are exorbitant. Animals do not understand why they get left behind and the animal welfare societies are suffering even more because of this. Animals are being left behind all of the time. It is so depressing. We have decided that if we can not take our dogs with us, we will have to stay in this crime riddled country of ours (South Africa). I also have Multiple Sclerosis and will have to pay for my medication in another country. At the moment my hospital plan is covering the medication which costs over R7 400.00 per month. Scared to stay in SA, but also very scared to leave everything and everybody we know.
