The deepening cost of living crisis is forcing people in the UK to rehome their pets, according to figures from the Dogs Trust.
The charity received 42,000 inquiries from pet owners about rehoming between 1 January and 31 October – a rise of almost 50% on the same period in 2021. Meanwhile, pet food banks have also opened across the country.
We would like to speak to people who’ve had to make this difficult decision in recent months. How has it affected you and your household?
We are also interested in speaking to those who use pet food banks and are concerned about being able to keep their pet.
