RE: Warn­ing is­sued over on­line pet scam (CP 9/1). Why do peo­ple buy pets on line? An­i­mal Wel­fare Cairns Inc is fre­quently con­tacted by peo­ple who have ob­tained a pet on on­line only to find the an­i­mal is in poor con­di­tion.

This time of year is a sad time for an­i­mal car­ers.

Many pets given as Christ­mas gifts are dumped as chil­dren go back to school.

With the Craiglie Paws and Claws shel­ter sold and Cairns RSPCA tem­po­rary clos­ing for ren­o­va­tions, healthy an­i­mals will face the death penalty as there is no room at re­main­ing an­i­mal shelters.

An­i­mal Wel­fare Cairns pro­vides dis­count de­sex­ing pro­gram to pen­sion­ers and low in­come earn­ers.

Why do peo­ple run the risk of pet scams when there is an­i­mal shelters that sell healthy de­sexed an­i­mals in need of a lov­ing home?
