A pet is not a toy that you just throw away when you get bored of it

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS... -

There are lit­er­ally hun­dreds of pets be­ing aban­doned in Dubai each week - its get­ting to dis­tress­ing, epi­demic pro­por­tions at the mo­ment, ahead of the sum­mer ex­o­dus These poor dogs and cats are taken into fam­i­lies homes and once their use has been out­lived they are left out on the streets in soar­ing heat with no food, wa­ter or shel­ter. There have been hor­rific re­ports of dogs ac­tu­ally been left locked in­side vil­las with no A/C and the own­ers have dis­ap­peared. I can­not be­gin to un­der­stand how any car­ing, re­spon­si­ble per­son can tor­ture an­other liv­ing crea­ture in this way, but please please think be­fore you take on the re­spon­si­bil­ity of a pet. A pet is for life, it is not a toy to be aban­doned when you bore of it. Treat ev­ery liv­ing crea­ture how you would wish to be treated and be­have as a re­spon­si­ble hu­man be­ing. If you are strug­gling with look­ing af­ter your an­i­mal there are luck­ily many vol­un­teers and or­gan­i­sa­tions who can try to help you.
