- Firstly, you should get your pet's health records from your vet before moving.
- Some animals prefer to be in quiet places during times like this. If your pet is one of those, then you should clear the most silent room and keep it there.
- Seeing as you are moving your pet to a strange place, it is advisable to keep familiar things, like toys and blanckets, around.

Dogs are known to be extremely sentimental and show possessiveness towards their belongings, which includes their owner, toys, home and blankets. Which is why Camilla sticks to her only possession, a blanket, even after her family abandoned her.
Cruel family abandons Camilla
The New Year is a holiday season meant to be spent with family, but that wasn't the case for Camilla. Marina Tarashevska, the co-founder of Dallas DogRRR, discovered the dog during a walk. Camilla had been abandoned by her family on New Year's Eve.
Patti Dawson, the executive director of Dallas Dog RRR, told The Dodo:
“I think she was still thinking her family would come back. She was in that stage of, ‘I’ll just wait here. This is familiar.’”
Camilla ignored Tarashevska’s attempts to get the dog to follow her, but Tarashevska cleverly used the blanket to lure her.
When she noticed that, no matter how far Camilla ran away from her when she tried to get hold of her, the dog always came back to the blanket. Tarashevska then moved the blanket a bit further every time Camilla ran away till they successfully made it to her backyard.
The poor dog was taken to the vet and got treatment for the wounds on her neck and ear. Camilla is now enjoying all the love she never got from her previous owner.
She's learning to trust in her new family at her foster home.
Dog lovers show sympathy over Camilla's maltreatment online
Many internet users feel sorry for the abandoned dog and have dropped their comments about the situation.
Thank you for saving this sweet one. Bad Karma will hit her former owners— billy_martin (@solidyockes) January 17, 2019
I can't understand people who move without their pets and leave them uncared for. I rented a house once and a cat kept running in the door. She was shy at first, but hungry. I asked my landlord about thr cat, but it had been the previous renters! We kept her when we moved.— Charlie Sanderson (@Charlieceratops) January 17, 2019
I hate it when ppl do this....if u can't take the responsibility then why start everything in the first place.— Rhythm (@iiiRhythmiii) January 17, 2019
We as humans have many ppl surrounding us ....whenever we need... but our pets have only us..
Also they have a short life....so why not give them all the love possible
We are glad that Camilla has found the love she deserves. However, pet owners should not leave their pets behind when moving. There are a lot of options that are preferable to abandonment. Don’t let these poor creatures loose faith in humanity.
