Is a dog still a mans best friend?

Since the credit crunch started to affect those in the UK there has been a marked increase in the number of RSPCA call outs with more and more pets appearing on the streets. For a country which has for centuries been a nation of pet lovers there has been a major shift over the last 12 months. More dogs are being shipped off to homes and more pets are being found in distressed states with euthanasia often the only option. What is happening?

While the situation may get worse before it gets better it is literally all down to the lack of activity in the UK economy and the fact that funds are so scarce. It has to be said that 99% of pet owners are heart broken at having to give their pets up or leave them to fend for themselves but they often have little choice.

The RSPCA and other animal charities are literally run off their feet and there is very little more they can do with government funding negligible. For the sake of all pets in the UK let us hope that there is some light at the end of the tunnel as more people than ever before may be forced to take their new Christmas pets back to the kennels just after the festive period is over.
