Members of the protective association of animals “4 Legged” Ensenada, B.C., will no longer collaborate with the Care Center’s Canine and Feline (CAC) because it does not allow them to work with volunteers and responsible parties agreed to extension of time for the sacrifice.
Silvia Salmon Amador, president of the association, referred to The Watchtower for a year were doing work in the center referred to; Monday to Saturday taking photos of the dogs and promote adoption.
He recalled that during the last administration agreed with the officials that they would have six days before being euthanized the animals that were not adopted and, to this action, only it would be the day of Friday; the same treatment would be applied to the puppies.
“We were working well. Yes it is true that the facilities were dirty, uncared for and with the dogs crammed, guys with big, sick with healthy, but with this new administration wanted to respect the agreement,” he said.
I responded that “I was going to be very difficult,” because puppies are susceptible to diseases and that better to take them to the shelter, but this was not possible as they were busy with the rescue of the street.
Instead of this, suggested another area within the same ACC and work to volunteers; entry to the officials, they said yes. Went there last Monday and they reviewed other sites.
Salmon Amador said that first reviewed a large space but it was destined to destazar dogs very sick, that is to say, extract the brain to send them to Mexico City for case-control studies of diseases.
The members of the association rejected this option because it was very polluted, but then accepted after ruling out other options; the problem was that there they were informed that they could not enter voluntary “because it was not contemplated within the law”.
“After so much negative, be a little kicking of you to give us another area, that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. We decided to abandon our work at the CAC, looking for adoption the animal.
“In that whole year, we get many animals have a second chance. There were hundreds of adoptions and a lot of owners recovered their dogs. Unfortunately we retired, not having the will to continue to cooperate,” said the president of the civil association.
Salmon Amador emphasized that they will continue to insist on a change to the activities of the CAC by a Adoption Center and Spay it to be free; he added that a group of California, the united States, is interested in providing the necessary medication to the CAC for such action, without which the Municipality have to perform some type of expense.
