Animal lovers.

As a lover of animals, living or taking a holiday in Spain you will soon become aware of the serious problem of abandoned animals, particularly cats and dogs that roam freely all over Spain. The local town halls have been very reluctant to contribute funds towards the welfare of these often abandoned and neglected pets that have been primarily cast out by their owners.


Abandoned pets.

You will often see and read about horrors that have occurred with puppies and kittens abandoned in or near basura (rubbish) bins. Often 5 or 6 kittens or puppies in a small closed cardboard box, starving and dying of thirst, rescued by a good Samaritan that has managed to save one or two of them due to their own diligence. In the late nineties, you would also often see packs of stray dogs roaming the towns and villages, pillaging for food. Cats would sit close by or on top of open bins, scavenging anything they could find to eat. Many people would supply food and water to these animals and often take them in to their own homes and offer them love and shelter.

Spanish pet insurance in English for people living in Spain and Europe.Over the years private individuals took it upon themselves to home and rehome these stray cats and dogs, offering to spend their own funds to take them to the veterinarians, with many veterinarians offering cut price discounts towards such animals in a bid to alleviate the problem.


Struggling dog shelters.

Even today, this is still a problem. Many cat and dog shelters, refuges, animal adoption groups and charities have been set up with private funds and then from support from the general public with events, fundraisers, shows and fates being used to make public awareness of the need for something to be done and to raise funds for those organisations that devote their time, money and effort to abandoned and un-cared for cats, dogs and donkeys.

Reports of Galgos, Spanish greyhound dogs, hanging from trees in Murcia and Andalucia abound after the hunting season has finished for the winter. The Galgueros, Spanish hunters, abandon their Galgos, the hunting greyhounds, by the thousands as they buy new ones the following September to use for hunting in the next season. These dogs are then left to fend for themselves.


Buying pets from pet shops.

Many buy pets from open markets and shows, pet shops and unscrupulous dealers, only to find that they are aggressive, ill, or they just cant cope with the puppy or kitten once it has grown to full size. Many don’t sterilise their animals and puppies and kittens abound. These are the ones that are usually dispensed with by the bins or even in them. Once the animals have become tiresome or too expensive to feed and medicate, many will drive to another town or village and release the animal to fend for themselves.

Hence the need for all of those wonderful people that are continuing to persevere to provide space, help and love, medication and treatment, new homes and charity and time and effort, in a bid to help these poor and helpless creatures.
