Osnabrück – During the summer holidays, according to the estimate of the animal protection federation president Thomas Schröder up to 70,000 domestic animals were given in animal shelters. “The animal shelters are already at their capacity limit throughout the year. Of course, every other animal is one too many, “said Schröder of the” Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung “. Reason is often the health of the animals. “Owners now give their animals because they can no longer afford the treatment of dogs or cats.” The work in the animal shelters is complicated by exotics such as snakes or monitor lizards.
