Struggling pet owners facing an uncertain financial future are being asked to think rescue first, after a Maine Coon cat was abandoned in a park with a note saying his owner had lost their job during lockdown and could no longer afford to care for him.
The British Veterinary Association (BVA) is urging pet owners and livestock keepers who are worried about their animals’ welfare to take steps now to avoid possible injury and distress during traditional fireworks dates such as Bonfire Night, Halloween, Diwali and New Year’s Eve.
Police are urging dog owners to ensure their pets are microchipped following the recent recovery of missing dogs. In the early hours of last Wednesday officers from the Met’s South Area BCU recovered 24 dogs from a site in Orpington following an early morning warrant. An additional 25 dogs have since been seized from the site during ongoing searches.
