Blue Cross is warning that the number of unwanted puppies, kittens and pregnant pets has reached epidemic levels. With its countrywide network of rehoming centres overwhelmed as numbers of pets being dumped and abandoned reach a record high, the charity is calling on owners to stop the needless suffering by supporting its neutering campaign.
The number of pets born at Blue Cross centres after their pregnant mothers were abandoned or given up has nearly doubled compared to four years ago, and the numbers of homeless puppies and kittens rescued by the charity has also rocketed.
The Blue Cross Big Neutering Campaign has been launched and aims to make ‘neutering the norm’, stamping out irresponsible breeding and raising awareness of the huge benefits of neutering.
