Sponsor to take care of Taffy
Cruelties in the pet trade in Asia are not only limited to endangered species. While on patrol in one of the local markets notorious for illegal sales of restricted species, one of our workers found a little bundle in a dustbin. While we don’t know the background of Taffy’s abandonment, an increasing trend in this part of India reveals a disgusting practice. Dogs are much preferred over cats as pets in India. So, many of the cats sold in markets are not really for companionship- they are being sold for food. When nobody is buying, the cat is no longer needed. Whether this was Taffy’s story or not, much of our feline family has been rescued from dustbins. Taffy has been with us for about two and a half years now.
