If you’ve been thinking about getting a pet, please first take a look at the New Westminster animal adoption site. The city’s website says that the shelter is currently at double capacity and desperately needs to find homes for cats and other small animals like chinchillas and bunnies.
This high shelter rate places animals at an increased risk of illness and injury. It is critical that these animals are placed into good homes as soon as possible. Small animals such as rabbits and chinchillas are also available for adoption.
If Barack Obama can do it, you can too.
