This is unforgivable.
In Malaysia, an animal boarding business has been described as a “pet hotel from hell.”
Observing Malaysian holidays, pet owners had to travel, so they boarded their cats at one of two faciliites.
When they got back they found both locations locked and abandoned…
With all the cats still inside!
Nine of the over 300 cats were dead. The rest were hungry, dehydrated or covered in excrement and urine.
In Malaysia, the fine for animal cruelty is about $65. After this incident the Veterinary Services Department head in Malaysia has plans to increase the fine to $34,000 by next year.
That’s a step in the right direction. After locking up the owners of the boarding facilities, of course.
