Five three-week old kittens discovered in a hole in the ground in the Chubut province of Argentina.
December and January are the most taxing months for animal protectionists in Argentina.
The cause is holiday fireworks. Across Argentina, pets get scared by fireworks on Christmas and New Year’s Eve and run away — most never to be found again. Strays abandon their pups and kittens, meaning animal protectionists are inundated with orphan animals at this time of year.
Thanks to the efforts of Mari Atuñez and her Animal Protection Agency of Buenos Aires and the people who care for stray animals in the city, Buenos Aires is starting to get its animal overpopulation problem under control.
Outside the city of Buenos Aires, extreme overpopulation of unwanted dogs and cats continues to be a problem.
