Leaving The Home By the River: Pet Relocation for the Retiree

Most anticipate retirement with an eager attitude toward a part of life that has yet to be experienced and enjoyed. When that day finally comes, it is key that the retiree has all of his or her necessary ducks in a row.

Many retirees choose to relocate perhaps the large, old house by the river where they raised their kids is too big and too empty. Some find it necessary to move closer to their grown children and their growing grandchildren.

When it comes to retirees moving with their pets, there is usually quite a bit of anxiety surrounding the pet֒s well being during the move. Typically the pet is older and has been calmly living his life by the river as well. The family pet has seen almost as much as the retireechildren being born and then going off to college.
