Adopt and score a major deal

AN adopted pet means one less animal is living in a shelter.
Chrissie Cremore, committee member and acting vice-president of PAWS-PATAS in Los Gallardos, also pointed out the owner of an adopted dog or cat always scores a major deal.
As well as unconditional love, they are getting a bargain.
All PAWS-PATAS puppies, kittens, cats and dogs receive the highest degree of medical care, specialist food and necessary surgery.
“When you adopt a dog, you receive a healthy animal whose standard treatment includes worming, de-fleaing and tick removal.  It will have been vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and provided with a passport,” Chrissie said.
The €180 donation which secures a PAWS-PATAS adoption goes towards the true cost, which is always in excess of €300.
All cats are thoroughly examined, treated for internal and external parasites and neutered. Again, the €120 donation only partly covers this treatment.
To exist, the shelter requires €9,500 per month and receives no statutory funding.
“If someone cannot afford these donations for a fully-prepared and neutered animal, then frankly they should not be adopting as they will not be able to afford good food and unexpected veterinary expenses,” Chrissie warned.
