I don’t know for sure how it’s in other countries, because been living in Kuwait for a while, so I’m outdated with what’s happening in the world, but here is surely a problem of people who are getting pets and then throwing them away.. on the street mostly.
They buy a pet (mostly dogs) for a couple of days, then get bored of it and you either randomly see it on the street or back where it came from, the animal market.
I mean, really. Why do you get them in the first place? Just so you have a pet and when you don’t find them interesting anymore you throw them away? What if your family did this to you? Kept you home for a while, then throw you out because they got bored of you?
They got souls too. And they can be smarter than some people and surely more loyal.
So please, don’t get them at all if you’re planning to leave them.
