There is a growing number of animals looking to find new homes in Toronto as owners who bought pandemic pets at the height of COVID-19 return to work — or struggle with the rising cost of looking after them, city officials warn.

Wow. The mandates even affected the pet population. So sad 😞
Yup dogs are just as expensive and needy as kids no thanks
IF YOU GIVE UP YOUR PETS, YOU SHOULD BE PUT ON A LIST THAT YOU CAN NEVER OWN ANOTHER…
Yeah this has nothing to do with the cost.
It’s not that expensive people are just selfish
This is so sad 😞 dogs are a lifetime commitment not something you buy to have at your convenience… people are so trash 🗑
Not "giving up" – they're abandoning their adoptees.
Don't blame the pandemic, blame flighty people who didn't think it through.
I've talked to some of these people
Put the "owners" down.
People are scum bags. I just dont understand.
Clearly some people don’t understand a lifetime commitment
So much hypocrisy….
Yup, people do suck
Pets are not rentable they are a full time commitment … Either u do or u don't
People who do/did this are trash 😠
So sad to see this, poor animals don’t deserve this, I wish I could give one a home but I already have 3 cats that I would never give up, they are my babies.
Angelina looking for a home?
I have a car who is now 3 years old.
I live him so much, I WOULD never just give him away.
He makes My world a better place and gives peace to my heart.
I am prepared to take care of him no matter how much it costs to take care of him.
I am willing to give up things to be able to make sure my cat is happy and shown lots of love. I feel so sorry for all those little animals who thought they had a forever home only to be given away.
THINK ABOUT HOW DEVASTATED THOSE POOR ANIMALS WILL BE BROKEN HEARTED BEING TAKEN AWAY FROM THE FAMILY THEY THOUGHT LOVED THEM.
THIS MAKES ME FEEL LIKE CRYING.
Because people are STOOOOOPID !!!
These humans need to go away, covid please help with that 🙏
