Demand For Re-Homing Cornish Pets Soars
8:02am 23rd June 2013
A Cornish pet rescue centre says it is being forced to turn away more than 40 animals each week.
The National Animal Welfare Trust in Hayle says the number of cats and dogs needing rehoming in the Duchy is soaring.
It claims owners do not think about what they will do with pets if their circumstances change.
Duchy representative Louise Clarke said: "Don't wait until you're in a completely desperate situation. Try and let people know. If it changes and you don't need to part with your pet then that's great, we'll take you off the waiting list. But it's always trying to think ahead and put plans into place.
"Cat or dog will know that it's a stressful situation for their owner, so they're already in an unusual situation that they are not going to be comfortable in and then to have to move somewhere new as well will be even worse for them."
