Suze Orman's Pet Peeve

Would You Give Away Your Pet If You Were Facing Bankruptcy?

I was watching The Suze Orman Show when she divulged a pet peeve she's never revealed before: people raising pets who can't afford them. She then went on to advise those who are struggling with debt to give away their pets to homes who can afford to raise and take care of the animals.

Having animals is a big expense. Not only do you have to deal with the day-to-day costs such as food, but you also have to take care of medical bills if your pet ever gets sick. And those vet bills can get quite pricey.

If you were struggling financially, would you consider giving away your pet?

San Antonio's Food Bank has a program called Daisy Cares that provides pet food and other materials for people who can't afford to feed their pets.  The reason they do this is because many people will buy food for their pets rather than for themselves.  It's really heartbreaking.   Suze Orman gets a lot of stuff wrong.  I'm a financial adviser, and much of her financial advice is completely off base!
