Worrying Rise In Unwanted Pets

Cat and Kittens

9:30am 9th October 2014

A Dorset charity which looks after abandoned animals says it's cared for over 120 kittens so far this year and is struggling to keep up with demand.

Margaret Green Animal Rescue say they're seeing increasing numbers of unwanted pets being handed in as owners are struggling to cope.

The latest cat was brought in because it was pregnant - and staff have been hand feeding the kittens as the mother's been struggling to cope.

Sadly "Leelou" has already lost one of her kittens despite the best efforts of staff.

Kitten Hand Fed


Their manager Claire Ross told Wessex FM "We would strongly advise anybody thinking of getting a pet to consider it very carefully. Caring for an animal is a big commitment and unfortunately we are seeing increasing numbers of unwanted pets as owners are struggling to cope."

You can donate to help the charity look after Leelou, her kittens and all the animals in their care by visiting their website:
