Campaign To Prevent Animals From Being Given Away As If They Were A Toy.
The Department of Animal Welfare launched a campaign over Christmas, when many puppies and other pets are given away, with some of them ending up becoming ‘broken toys’ and abandoned. The council wants to promote the adoption of dogs to avoid abandonment of these animals. Councillor Silvia García emphasized that animals are not suitable as gifts and that they must be taken care of. The annual abandonment figures in Spain are around 140,000 animals and adoption instead of purchase is an essential message to get across to people.
