THE post-festive season has been kind to the RSPCA Bundaberg Shelter — not a single unwanted Christmas present has been dumped at the shelter.

However, the centre is experiencing an influx of strays and the usual summer flood of kittens.

RSPCA Bundaberg Shelter manager Vicki Beer said the shelter had also received calls from a number of people saying they had found a stray and would look after it until the owners were found.

Mrs Beer is urging pet owners to take responsibility for their pets by ensuring they have tags so the owner could be easily identified.

If you have lost your pet, telephone the RSPCA Bundaberg Shelter on 4155 1736.
