NEWFOUNDLAND, CANADA – An animal shelter in central Newfoundland is in a very welcome situation this week — with no dogs available for those who are looking to adopt.
Gander Spca says it isn’t getting the same amount of complaint calls about dogs it once did because there aren’t any dogs there!
Betty Suley, president of the local shelter, thinks this may be signaling a change in attitudes regarding the responsible ownership of dogs.
“The ones we did have were adopted and there have been no calls as of yet for any to come in,” she told CBC’s Central Morning Show Thursday.
“I’m hopeful that we finally got our message out to spay and neuter, and to look after your pets and that they’re not a disposable item.”
While the shelter doesn’t have any dogs right now, Suley said there are still 30 or 40 cats and kittens there who are available for adoption. She said ideally she would like to see the shelter completely vacant.
“There are some really beautiful cats here. If anyone wants one I ask them to come down here and take a look,” she said.
“The ultimate goal is to put us out of business.”
We here at The Best Cat Page hope enough of those cats get adopted as quickly as possible so that this fine shelter could get its wish and be put out of business!
