RSPCA Cymru is renewing calls for pet owners to get their animals neutered or spayed after a "worrying" increase in the number of rescues completed so far this year in Wales
The animal charity say it's already rescued as many dogs this year (94) as it had done for the whole of 2015, which they call a "worrying trend".
They also say 70 animals were rescued in June this year following abandonment, compared to 48 at the same time last year.
The charity is advising anyone taking on a new pet to do their research and make sure the animal suits their lifestyle and that they can provide for it for the entirety of its life.
It also advises neutering pets to avoid unplanned pregnancies and unwanted litters.
