The abandonment of animals has been a worrying situation for a long time. This is a problem that is even worse in holiday periods, but sometimes on a large scale at any time of the year. This is what happens now, with desperate reports from SPAD, the Society for the Protection of Domestic Animals. It has little space and, in recent times, it has been cases behind cases, and today even notice that two more dogs were left inside the Shelter.
“It has been constant during these weeks the abandonment at night in our facilities. So far we have welcomed every animal and are all already in the process of preparing for responsible adoption. Today, we must appeal to all not to abandon their animals at our doors.
Spad has been in overdrive for a long time and we do not have space to welcome these friends. We appeal to the competent entities that effectively begin to be competent, responsible and effective. Animal cause for us is not a fad. “
In terms of how the people of Madeira can help SPAD in its difficult mission, this institution points out the possibility of raising members with a minimum annual quota of 35 euros, adopting an animal and helping the animals for adoption, contributing donations, in kind and money, purchasing products from Spadolândia, which supplies lots of food, bedding, products etc for your pets, vaccinating and electronically identifying their animals, according to the law in force, and sterilising your pet.
