this significant message to all your friends who think of moving soon.
Each year, close to 500
000 cats and dogs are abandoned in the province of Quebec, this is the
highest amount in North America.
80 % of the animals received by shelters are euthanized within 72 hours
of their arrival. The fate that awaits cats abandoned in the streets is
even more tragic: they reproduce quickly and in large numbers and end up
dying either through starvation, exposure to the cold or by disease.
There are two answers for the problems of unwanted domestic pets: owners
taking responsibility and the neutering or spaying of your pet.
If you are moving and you cannot take your animal with you, it is your
responsibility to find your pet a new home. Shelters are to be used only
as a last recourse and under no circumstances should you abandon your
pet in the country, by the side of a road or highway, etc.
Remember that there are already too many domesticated animals for the
number of homes available. Supply does indeed exceed demand.
Taking responsibility also means neutering or spaying your pet.
To adopt an animal has to involve some forethought. You picked him or
her; they give you their trust in return, donít betray them!
