The Small Animal Corner

Little rabbits, guinea pigs, geese, chickens, doves, ravens, goats and peacocks — all these animals and others can be found in the small animal corner of the Society. As a non-profit organization that prides itself on its slogan, that its gates are always open for all animals in trouble, we take in all sorts of animals, and we built, precisely for them, an animal corner suitable for their welfare. We want to emphasize that our small animal corner is not a petting zoo: the visitors of the Society can watch the animals, but they cannot touch them.

These animals have come to us from small animal corners that have been closed, from private citizens who found them in the street, and primarily from those who bought them in pet stores and then decided to abandon them when it became clear that taking care of them was a burden.

Mass abandonment of many animals takes place primarily in the summer months, when children on vacation buy chicks, guinea pigs and little rabbits for small sums in pet stores, many times without parental consent. Unfortunately the bitter end is known from the start: without basic knowledge related to the method of raising animals, many of the animals die after a few days of starvation, of dehydration or of unsuitable conditions. In other cases the children hide their new pet from their parents, and put them in bomb shelters, in the garbage room, in the gas canister room, or in other hiding places. The representatives of the Society who come to rescue these animals are often shocked over the lack of responsibility of those involved in the matter, and therefore we call for the merchants and the pet shop owners to stop this terrible commerce, and to stop selling animals to children. Similarly, we ask parents who give their permission to raise this or that animal, to assume responsibility for its care and if necessary to bring it to the appropriate factors.

 
Finding a permanent home for animals in a small animal corner is not simple. Many small animal corners in Israel are not taking in new animals, while others are not suitable or don’t meet the special needs of various animals.

Representatives of quality, well kept small animal corners who are interested in adopting animals from our small animal corner are invited to contact the offices of the Society. Our representative will come to you in order to ascertain that your small animal corner is suitable for raising animals and that it is under veterinary supervision.
