Our London HQ has been inundated with calls from people wanting us to rehome their dog - one in five is now a rehoming request compared with just one in 10 a few months ago. The main reasons people are quoting is the credit crunch and that things are getting tight. It is a particular problem for people who have poorly dogs who require regular vet treatment and medicine.
London, UK (PRWEB) January 4, 2009
The recent global credit crunch has left our pets in great need. Many pet owners are in despair, unable to properly care for their companions. All of us have heard and seen the devastation the current economic climate is having on people around the globe, but has anyone taken the time to see if our pets have been affected also? Since the beginning of the global economic recession there has been an increase in pets being taken to rescue homes for special attention, fuelling speculation in animal protection facilities that pet health and well being is at its lowest point for many years. The need for more affordable pet supplies has never been greater than it is today.
As the finances tighten in the average home, many pet owners are finding it difficult to pay their mortgage, never mind medical bills for their pets. This had lead to a greater sick and fatality rate among our pets. Pet health is on a rapid decline while pet supplies have been rising in cost. More and more pets are being abandoned or dropped off at animal hospitals because the expense is too unbearable for the owner. This increasing issue can be seen mainly throughout the U.K., Europe and North America. Something needs to be done to alleviate the financial pressure placed on pet owners.
The U.K. is one of leading animal welfare nations in Europe and two of the leading Dog and Cat re-homing centres have both indicated dramatic increase in admissions and a decrease in footfall. In a recent interview a spokeswomen for Battersea home in London said "We have seen a big increase in the number of strays being brought to us, we can't be certain that this is directly attributable to the credit crunch, but there is an assumption that this is the reason. There has also been a 20 per cent decrease in the number of people providing new homes for Cats and Dogs, compared with this time last year." The Dog Trust, the largest dog welfare charity in the U.K., said: "Our London HQ has been inundated with calls from people wanting us to rehome their dog - one in five is now a rehoming request compared with just one in 10 a few months ago. The main reasons people are quoting is the credit crunch and that things are getting tight. It is a particular problem for people who have poorly dogs who require regular vet treatment and medicine."
