Only in the first eight months of the year, the Protective Association of Animals of Chuquisaca (APACH) received at least 25 cases of mistreatment of dogs, a number that shows, according to activists, the hardness with which they are treated many dogs in Sucre. Today that is celebrated in San Roque, the patron saint of animals, it seeks to sensitize the population.
The representative of APACH. Litzy Martinez, announced awareness-raising activities for this day dedicated to thank the faithful friends of the home, although the picture in the streets is the strongest evidence that not all are taken care of as it should.
“We receive complaints of abuse of different forms and we have animals in deplorable state. It hurts to see that we humans are so insensitive about it,” noted Martinez.
Today in the temple of San Roque, the mass will be at 19:00. In the area follow the Alasitas.
On Saturday, from 9:00 until 14:30, Zoonoses of the Mayor and the Governor will offer a rabies vaccine and sterilization chemical to the canes, in the plaza de San Roque.
Among the activities linked to the date, yesterday, Eduardo Loredo officially launched the single «Angel with a tail» or «Caporal of the pets.»
