Mass sterilisation programmes will ultimately reduce the number of animals needing homes and adoption efforts will find new homes for those who can adapt. But, there will always be cats and dogs, already born, who are not good candidates for adoption.
Those of us committed to and involved in animal welfare cannot hope to end the euthanasia of millions of unwanted pets without attempting to create another option for these ‘special needs’ dogs and cats.
TUFCAT has thus set up a Home for Life sanctuary to this end…
Most people make no provision for their pets in their will. So, when they die, family members or friends (who have not been approached or who are often not willing or able to take in the animals for various reasons) hand them over to the SPCA or other over-crowded and under-resourced welfare societies to rehome or put to sleep. Or they are simply abandoned and left to fend for themselves. We know this as we have witnessed it dozens of times and we currently have several animals in our sanctuary whose owners have died. It is up to you to consider your pet’s welfare, should you not be around to care for them. It is thus absolutely crucial that you do the right thing, and make proper arrangements for your pets while you are still alive.
Surely, your beloved pets deserve better than being left homeless and being handed over to an unknown fate?
What you can do:
Please do not let your pets end up at a welfare or shelter, or get handed out to a bad home, or simply be abandoned, when you are no longer around to care for them.
