AN ANIMAL IS FOR LIFE NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS
As the festive season looms people will be buying presents for their family and friends and making plans for Christmas and the New year...... BUT some will be planning to acquire a new pet ......
PLEASE - PLEASE - PLEASE DO NOT BRING A PET INTO YOUR HOME UNLESS IT IS AT LEAST 7-10 days BEFORE CHRISTMAS - even then it will depend on the pet and its temperament and needs.
YET AGAIN Pet Shops will be selling animals 'OVER THE COUNTER' which is SO irresponsible - but PLEASE may the 'buyer' show responsibility by NOT BUYING.
All responsible Rescue Centres/ private breeders/sellers will NOT rehome/sell within at least a week of the Christmas/New Year period.Obviously animals, of ANY description should NOT be given as presents at ANY time of year, but introducing a new pet during the Festive Season is one of the worst times to introduce them to new surroundings and a new family.
MANY animals WILL be abandoned over/after the Christmas/New Year period and this is a VERY sad FACT.
PLEASE let's try to stop this happening on our Island by spreading the word to friends, family and neighbours.
IF THE ANIMAL IS REALLY, REALLY WANTED FOR ALL THE RIGHT REASONS THEN IT IS WORTH WAITING JUST A LITTLE WHILE LONGER
We are open throughout the Festive Season and are only a phone call away and you are also welcome to visit us.But we wont be rehoming between 18/12 - 1/1/20
