depends on where you are moving with the burms. If hell froze over and the sun fell from the sky and after a bad acid trip I choose to move back to N.Y. state (can you tell I love the place.) I would be a criminal if I chose to take some of my animals with me. Most people would not chance the risk. In many other cases life happens. given the current economy people lose jobs and as a result lose homes and have no choice but to give up pets. Giving their pets up for adoption is certainly better than just dumping them in the streets.

Until a few years ago I used to be one of those guys who used to yell at the homeless guys on the street corners in Orlando to "get a job". Then the economy got tight. I'm a landscaper by trade I watched houses on our routes get foreclosed on the point that a lot of our work dried up. Landscapers in this area have it pretty good compared to the construction trades. As bad as things have been for me I am very fortunate compared to others. I still have my house and I have not had to give up any of my pets and I know where my next meal is coming from. But it was a rough ride for a while and it still is. I no longer make fun of homeless people and I occasional hand a few bucks in the direction of some of them if I have it to give. I now have a new understanding of that saying about the grace of god.

Amazondoc I see a lot of your posts on here where you come of with this air of superiority towards people who give up their pets. Because apparently their reasons don't seem to meet your high standards of why people should give up their animals.
from my own experience that type of attitude can come around and really bite you in the butt. It did me, and people warned me about it too. Don't make the same mistake I did.
