Some of the Most F*%#ed-Up Family Trees From Last Year’s Crufts Winners

If you know someone who is looking for a new pet in the family help them find one from a shelter:

Animalista Untamed

I don’t normally write 4 blogs posts in rapid succession on the same topic, but that’s just a measure of my heartache at the thought of those thousand upon thousand unwanted dogs in shelters in the UK, not to mention the 5,000 strays put down every year. I rescued my own gorgeous girl Holly from Manchester Dogs Home. She has been my loving, sweet, gentle companion for 15 years.

This is Holly enjoying Lake Coniston two years ago.

Multiply the UK numbers by a factor of thousands in the US. Approximately 3.9 million dogs enter animal shelters nationwide every year, with approximately 1.2 million dogs euthanised.

The Westminster Dog Show, the biggest in the US, takes place at pretty much the same time as Crufts and is plagued with the same kind of problems.

Whenever attention is focused on financial crises it often is overseen that these situations lead to neglect and despair of those who have come to depend on human help: companion animals.

The cities of many nations hit by a variety of downfalls develop into poor houses for many animals in need.

Here is another country in desperate need of aide for their animals:

“The BBC reported a few short months ago on the dogs of Greece, becoming victims of homelessness and hunger, following years of financial crisis in the country:

‘There are more than a million strays in Greece because people are simply abandoning pets they can no longer afford to keep.'”
