Although there is the proliferation of stray dogs and cats especially in the colonies far there is not a census of the number of animals in this situation of abandonment. The only thing you can do to try to stop it is sterilization.
The alderman tenth second with the commission on Ecology and the Environment, José González reinforces this statement provided by the association for the protection of animals The Rock saying not to post the copies on the street, only there are communities that rally.
The town Hall from his stage management has generated campaigns permanent sterilization and vaccination to combat the problem, however, is not enough there has to be a change in culture, says the mayor.
“If you don’t have space and time to bring another being to live with you. A pet is preserved from this time until they die,” he warns.
The case of the poisoning of 8 cats with the toxic substance called “one Thousand eighty” both for animals and for humans in the area of the Ecological park is still unresolved, the Office has not done justice to whoever is responsible.
In contrast to the discomfort of the alleged residents of the area that they got rid of the cats there are also people who are concerned for the welfare of defenseless animals less fortunate as it is the case of The Rock.
