Open day for the Torrevieja Animal Shelter

Open day for the Torrevieja Animal Shelter

TORREVIEJA’S councillor for animal protection, Carmen Morate, has announced the date for the next open day at the Albergue Municipal Animal Shelter.

It will be on Sunday December 2, and is the third month in succession that people have the chance to visit the shelter to see the gorgeous pets, meet the people who work and volunteer there and see how they work on a day-to-day basis.

There will also be a dog show and parade of all the animals that are up for adoption.  You can also visit the cats and, to quote Carmen, “you can receive a purr in exchange for a caress and a cuddle!”

There will be a market selling items to raise funds for the shelter, which includes a table for tasting vegan food – no animal products here – and a craft workshop for children run by volunteers of the Asociación Animalistas of Torrevieja.  “This activity combines the children being entertained while at the same time showing them the work of the shelter and the importance of adopting animals rather than buying them,” explained Carmen.

All animals lovers are invited, in the words of Carmen, “to spend a pleasant morning with both humans and animals” between 1130am and 1pm at the Torrevieja Animal Shelter.  It’s located on Calle Nenúfares between and behind the local police station and fire station close to the Habaneras shopping centre.
