RAMLE, ISRAEL - JULY 10: A rescued puppy gets some attention from a worker as it waits to adopted at the "Let The Animals Live" pet shelter on July 10, 2009 in Ramle, Israel. Animal welfare activists say that in Israel thousands of pets are dumped at the roadside as families go away for their summer holidays, while in Europe the numbers of animals abandoned in the holiday season can climb into the hundreds of thousands across the continent.
