- Animals and people are both outside more, leading to more stray animals.
- Many animals, especially cats, give birth throughout the spring and many are brought to us eight weeks or so later.
- Early summer is the beginning of summer holiday season, and many people surrender their pet before going on holidays.

You know what may shock you more? I am mostly ok with that. I say "mostly" because I believe that being a pet owner is a serious commitment. But I also believe that, if all else fails, bringing your pet to a shelter is a responsible choice. Too many pets are simply abandoned when not convenient, dumped somewhere alone and left to their own devices. And that is much, much worse than surrendering him to a trustworthy shelter.
