Companion animals are suffering as a result of the recession, often because their owners have lost jobs and cant afford to care for them anymore or pay vet fees. Many owners are asking their vets to euthanise their pets. The RSPCA takes in stray animals, but does not have the capacity to take animals that owners don't want or can't keep any longer.
Italy and India have already made it illegal to euthanise healthy companion animals - if they can do it, so can we!
