Horrendous situation

Newfoundland SPCA has bad news.

The SPCA says they are forced to euthanize close to 50 per cent of the cats that come into their care. This past week, the organization was forced to euthanize about a dozen feral cats rescued from a dump in Haricot. The SPCA’s Debbie Powers says people just aren’t sitting down and thinking it through before getting an animal, and end up dropping them off at shelters when they realize they can’t afford them. She says people aren’t availing of the many spay and neuter programs that are offered across the province and end up making an already horrendous situation worse. She says there are only so many good homes. Powers says last year, they had well over 1,000 cats in their care and were forced to euthanize over 50 per cent of them.
