“If you can’t care for your animals, please take some time to contact local shelters for help. We are already overwhelmed with small animals so we will have to make room. We literally have cages on top of each other. If you are interested in getting pets, please check your local shelters first and realize that you should keep them forever.”

Pets being abandoned by their owners has been brought to the forefront in southern New England in recent years causing cash strapped shelters to find even more room for animals with no homes.
