Nice pet adoption day in Pozos
The main square of the Villa de Pozos delegation was the scene of the great event for the adoption of abandoned pets. Unofficial figures reveal that every day a dog or a cat is abandoned in the state of San Luis Potosí. These innocent animals are abandoned by irresponsible and insensitive owners who never understood the meaning of having a pet.
Despite awareness campaigns, the figure is still very high. These data are a symptom that we are facing a social problem because the issue has been distorted since some groups of people have the belief that feeding street dogs is doing good when in reality is the wrong thing to do because this ensures that the population of abandoned animals proliferates and the adoptions number does not increase at all.
The idea is to make people understand the issue of animal rescue and responsible pet ownership. The event in Pozos was organized by Un Pedacito de Cielo, a group that rescues homeless pets, rehabilitates, vaccinates, and sterilizes them.
“We are working with a lot of love and affection for our four-legged furry friends, because we also do social work to obtain funds and support pets,” declared Vanesa Marín from Un Pedacito de Cielo, who specified that they also collect dog food.
