It's raining cats and dogs
CORINDI Beach based Animal Protection Association of Australia is pleading for new homes for unwanted cats and dogs.
March is typically a difficult time of year for animal welfare groups who handle unwanted pets and this year was no exception, said APAA spokeswoman Sally Wilson.
“There are the usual Christmas present puppies and kittens that have now outgrown their cute and novelty factor,” said Ms Wilson.
“Our message to stop buying animals as Christmas presents or on impulse is just not getting through to some people and we are left to deal with the fallout.
“We are also trying to re-home an assortment of adult dogs who are being given up by their owners, sometimes for the flimsiest of excuses.
“Around 60,000 healthy dogs and cats are destroyed in this State every year and that’s very sad.” Sally is hoping more pet owners will do the responsible thing and get their pet desexed.
If you can offer a home to a dog or cat call Sally on 0409 824 803.
