Every year in Italy people abandon 50’000 dogs and 80’000 cats.
30% of the pets are found on the streets just before summer, because the familes who are going on holiday cannot bring their pets with them, they cannot afford to put them in a boarding kennel or cattery, so just leave them on the streets.
Another 30% of the dogs get abandoned because are not good at hunting, and so on.
Many people also don’t know or don’t care about the importance of neutering their pets, and when abandon them, the dogs and cats keep having litters.
We are trying to educate people and to teach them to treat animals with love and respect. Hopefully one day this dream will come true.
