SO far this year, 3,400 stray dogs and cats have been rescued in Malaga province, 10 per cent more than last year.
More than 1,000 of them have been taken to the Paraiso shelter in Alhaurin de la Torre. The Environmental Deputy, Juan Jesus Bernal, and the Health Councillor in Alhaurin de la Torre, Salvador Herrera, visited the shelter which takes abandoned animals from 89 towns throughout the province.
Herrera complained that pet owners from other towns leave their animals in Alhaurin de la Torre, and asked anyone who witnesses this type of activity to contact the police or the shelter. Bernal pointed out that 744 animals were adopted in August, which is a slight fall on last year.
ADANA , the Estepona-based dog charity reports that, like other centres along the coast, they are experiencing a huge increase in the number of abandoned dogs arriving at the kennels in Parque de Pedregales, so much so that overcrowding at the kennels is becoming a problem.
There are now over 200 dogs in the shelter, far more than can easily be given the full care and attention they deserve.
