Welcome to our website
Hi once again, this month we have a new document on THE CORONA VIRUS This includes MEDICAL INFORMATION as well SCAM PREVENTION and because it is a “heavy subject” we finished on some LIGHT-HEARTED ARTICLES , we have also listed many USEFUL PHONE NUMBERS/WEBSITES. Continue to guard against scammers.
****** The Heartstrings Website is back once again to attempt to throw some extra light on the ever-growing problem of PUPPY FARMING, DOG and CAT THEFT, IMPORTED PUPPIES from Eastern Europe and DOG FIGHTING. Puppy farming is big business with dealers getting rich and leaving a trail of sick and dead puppies behind them. Puppies are taken away from their mothers too soon, when still too young, they are loaded into vans like cargo before travelling hundreds of miles to be sold on to unsuspecting owners. You may get the breed of your choice cheaper that a recognised breeder’s price but it works out more in the long run. All these puppies were badly neglected since birth and if you have one, you will have to spend a lot of money on Vet’s fees to tackle various health problems including GENETIC DEFECTS. Even worse these poor animals struggle to make it passed 2 or 3 years leaving you to mourn a family pet that may have lived up to 11 – 15 years. Puppy Farmed Dogs and Imported dogs is CRUEL, EXPENSIVE & HEARTBREAKING. ******
*** If you enjoy the music or find the articles enjoyable or useful, then a voluntary donation to your Local Animal Welfare FOOD BIN in your Supermarket(s) or Pet Shop or Animal Charity Shop would be more than gratefully received!***
*** Many Animal Charities have had no fundraising events since November 2019. Every month that goes by is putting an additional strain on their resources. Food bins are a great help usually, but the restricted numbers using supermarkets mean that donations of food are smaller than normal. Many other financial considerations needing attention include VETS BILLS, ELECTRICITY BILLS, LITTER, FUEL and GENERAL COSTS. Any voluntary financial DONATION given direct to your local Animal Welfare Centre could help to tide them over until the situation “picks up”. I also believe that by the back-end of this year there will be an explosion of cats. Many Vets have only been dealing with emergencies which have left Neutering Programmes suspended.***
