Holidays should not be prison terms for pets

China Daily | Updated: 2019-02-12 07:19

THE PET FOSTERING BUSINESS has flourished during the weeklong Spring Festival holiday that just ended, as an increasing number of pet owners chose to entrust their "hairy kids" to pet shops. However, the services these pet shops offer might not be as professional as they are supposed to be. Beijing News comments:

According to media reports, many of the pet shops interviewed simply do not know what certificate they must obtain in order to qualify for the business. Even though most of the pet shops ask for higher prices during the Spring Festival holiday, a majority of them are unable to provide professional services.

For some of the pet shops, "pet fostering" simply means providing a place for pets to be kept when their owners are away from home, and that can be as simple as a cage. There are too many videos online showing how pets are shut in small cages and the staff doing nothing other than feeding them some water and food every day.
