No need for online pets
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?
