Dumping grounds

Whitby and region full of abandoned animals.

“All the conservation areas, farms and concession roads get animals dumped all the time,” said Humane Society of Durham Region manager Ruby Richards. “You ask almost any farmer in Durham Region, he could probably tell you he’s got about 400 cats on his property that people have dumped.”

People assume animals can fend for themselves in these types of environments when, in reality, their domestic nature renders them defenceless, she added.
