What’s going on in Carinthia? The abandonment of animals – especially cats and small animals – never ends. Animal shelters are sounding the alarm. At the Garden of Eden in Klagenfurt, even a terminally ill cat was simply laid down to die.
Carinthia’s animal rights activists are shocked by the increasing heartlessness. The abandonment of animals just never ends. The homes no longer know how to house the abandoned animals. “We have one to three animals in front of the site every day. Rabbits and guinea pigs have been increasingly abandoned lately,” animal keeper Dennis from the Garden of Eden animal shelter is appalled. A terminally ill tortoiseshell cat, for example, was simply left in front of the animal shelter to die. “Then tears came to my eyes. How can you do something like that. We could only redeem the poor animal. At least I was able to give her a pat,” says the animal keeper.Donations of food always welcomeMore than a hundred cats currently have to be cared for in the Garden of Eden. Most exposed and abandoned. “Fortunately, numerous animal lovers provide us with cat food. Because we need that more than ever. We can no longer cover the feed costs alone,” says the animal keeper. who wants to help. Good quality cat food is needed regularly. In addition, of course, there is also food for small animals. Animal protection activists also find numerous indoor cats wandering around desperately during their castration campaigns in the country. “This is how the owners avoid neutering. It’s just sad,” Erie Rochowansky from Tierschutz Aktiv is also shocked. At Tiko Klagenfurt not even cute puppies can find a home anymore. Unfortunately, animal protection abroad also plays a role here. “Every second person has a foreign dog. We stay on our four-legged friends in the shelter. Where will this end?”
