Today I want to tell you something
about the street dogs in Spain! There aren’t many
people in Spain who are fond of animal. That’s why other people must help the
animals. These people try to rescue them. They desex them, give them a home or
they take them to Germany. There are many organizations in Spain. These
organizations build houses for the dogs and cats. This is very expensive but
they get no money from the government. They are dependent on bounties.
At the moment there are about 60 organizations in Spain. But that’s not enough
because there are more and more animals in Spain who need help.
Here on the webpage you can see organizations who work in Spain.
What can you do?
- help in animal shelter
- donate: money, food, water pots etc.
- take a animal to Germany
- tidy up the food station of the animals
On the way to Germany:
There aren’t many Spaniard who want a dog. That’s the reason why people try to
interfered dogs and cats in Germany. The organizations have a lot of contact
with the animal-rights activists in Germany. They search for people who want a
street dog from Spain. Then the organization search for tourists who accompany
the dogs or the cats on the way to Germany. The costs are taken over from the
animal organizations. The animals are brought to the airport in Spain and picked
up in Germany at no cost for the tourists. Since the animal organizations
organizes everything and also take over all cost there is absolutely no stress
or expense for the tourists. Many German animal shelter are open for animals out
of foreign countries.
Ways to help the animals:
Many animal-rights activist try to show the Spaniard that animals are living
beings. For example they visit schools and try to wake good feelings for the
animals by the students. They show them how cruel the situation is.
Many Germans build a small private animal shelter in Spain. They desex the
animal to keep the animal population low. Also they take care until he animals
Many Spaniard are against animal-rights activist.
