COMMENT - No excuse over pets

WHY people buy pets at Christmas time when they clearly cannot look after them is beyond comprehension.

Quite why so many people abandon their pets after a few weeks still beggars belief. If you cannot look after a pet take it to a rescue home. How hard is it to at least give the poor creature another chance in life. People can be beyond callous and it is shameful to think animals are made to suffer because of the laziness of their owners.

It is no wonder rescue homes are being stretched to breaking point.
