Pet care campaign launched

A PETITION has been launched calling on councils in Nottinghamshire to actively promote more responsible pet care.

Helen Burton, from the Prevent Unwanted Pets campaign, says an estimated 10,000 dogs and 14,000 cats are destroyed in the UK every year because there are not enough homes for them.

She said local authorities should be updating their literature and websites and promoting neutering through incentives, publicity and education to discourage breeding.
