How Do I Give Up My American Staffordshire Terrier?
"How do I give up my American Staffordshire Terrier," may be the first question you ask yourself when you realize you need to give up your pet. If you've already explored all ideas that would allow you to keep him then you'll have a few options as to how to give him up. You can surrender your American Staffordshire Terrier to a shelter, work with a rescue, or rehome him yourself.
Surrender to a Shelter
A pro of this option is that it's usually pretty fast to surrender your pet. The downside is that you can't be sure what will happen to your dog. Shelters try to find good homes for every pet in their care, but it's not always possible. Add to the mix the unfair reputation the American Staffordshire Terrier has been saddled with, it makes it easy to see why this may not be an ideal option.
Work with a Rescue
Reputable private rescues are usually selective about the dogs they take in, but once they do take one they'll do whatever it takes to find them a home. It can be difficult to find one with room, but it's worth exploring as an option for your American Staffordshire Terrier.
Rehoming the American Staffordshire Terrier Yourself
