Number of abandoned animals goes up with temperature

2018-08-16 01:27
Every year hundreds of cats and dogs are found on the streets and industrial areas of the Emirates. There is an apparent spike in the summer months, leaving shelters and rescuers overwhelmed. And this year is no different. The Emirati non-profit organisation was established by four women who decided to take matters into their own hands when they saw the number of abandoned animals increasing. They rescue cats and dogs, neuter and spay them, vaccinate them and then look for homes for them. While waiting for adoption, the animals are housed with foster families or at local animal boarding facilities. The members will even foster cats in their own homes when there's no space in shelters.
