More Dogs Abandoned In Cornwall
7:01am 1st April 2013
Cornwall struggles to give a dog a home.
Pirate FM has learnt the number being abandoned in the Duchy is rocketing.
Animal welfare groups say numbers have gone up by a quarter in the last few months.
Marriage breakdown and benefit cuts are being blamed.
Sue Smith is from K9 Crusaders at Bissoe: "When you take any dog into your home, of any age, you are in effect taking on a newborn in terms of the commitment required, the time and the energy. Many people do underestimate that.
"Everybody thinks it's very easy to have a dog and while hopefully having a dog will enrich your life, there are a lot of people who've perhaps chosen the wrong dog and the result is that it becomes a burden."
