مكافحة ظاهرة هجر الحيوانات: مسؤولية رعاية الحيوان مدى الحياة

The phenomenon of animal abandonment is an ethical and humanitarian problem that threatens the lives of pets and causes great harm to society.

What is the phenomenon of animal abandonment?

Since the dawn of time, humans have had close relationships with pets, making them partners in their life's journey. Caring for pets was a source of happiness and comfort, and gave them a sense of security and belonging.

However, over time, a disturbing phenomenon known as “animal abandonment” has emerged.

The phenomenon of animal abandonment refers to getting rid of a pet in any way, whether by leaving it on the street, sheltering it in an animal shelter, or giving it up to other people without wanting to care for it.

This phenomenon is an ethical and humanitarian problem that threatens the lives of pets and causes great harm to society.

Reasons for abandoning animals:

The reasons for abandoning animals are varied, including:

Changes in a person's life:

  • Traveling or moving to a new place.
  • Marriage or childbirth.
  • Facing financial difficulties.

Spreading awareness of the responsibility of animal welfare:
