There are many details to get used to when moving countries. Considering having pets, finding lost animals and how to care for them is another factor that one takes for granted in the country one comes from but does need to learn when moving to Israel.
If you are used to where vets are located, where to find pet shops, how to get in touch with your local SPCA and what animals are permitted as pets, you will have some learning to do in Israel. In some areas, a vet is easy to find while in others, vets might be in a neighbouring village or town. The rules, laws and procedures can be very, very different to what you are used to, wherever you came from.
So what do you do if you would like a pet? What do you do if you come across a lost animal? Will you know how to take care of him / her in the best possible way?
One couple found they had quite a lot of questions when moving to an apartment with a small garden. They had a few un-expected visitors and needed to learn quickly the best possible way to help them. You can learn more of their experience and what effort they went to in order to find out the appropriate intervention for Israel.
We have just come out with a book for children, illustrated with photographs to enable the children to be a part of the story. The book tells what steps the couple went to in order to find the necessary information. Find it on Createspace and stay in touch for updates of other outlets.
