In the first six months of this year the Sociedad Protectora de Animales y Plantas in Malaga has taken in 786 abandoned animals, of which 672 were dogs and 114 were cats. They also rescued injured seagulls and pigeons, rabbits and tortoises. Most ... are abandoned once the hunting season is over and are found wandering, and unwanted litters are also often dumped at its door. "This can't go on. We can't cope with more nursing mothers, but people don't care about that," said sources there.
