Dog pounds are overwhelmed all over Spain

DOG_POUND (Agencies) Dog pounds throughout the country are reporting that they are overwhelmed by owners trying to find another home for their pets. Many families are finding it increasingly difficult to keep their animals. Feeding and visits to the vet have become a luxury many can no longer afford, according to José Cabra, of the Málaga dog refuge. The situation is compounded by people simply abandoning their dogs or cats; many stray animals can be seen at petrol stations on main roads or at shopping centre car parks, for instance.
