Do we really know what the word Charity means? If we look for it on Google, the first search is that of Wikipedia that quotes these words: “A charity or charitable organization is a non-profit organization whose primary objectives are philanthropy and social well-being.”
We certainly agree with this definition, but we intend to benefit charity even when volunteering can be done or someone in difficulty can be saved ; and this is precisely what we want to talk about: animal protection.
Here in Tenerife the problem of abandonment is very felt, every year more than 2500 animals, between dogs and cats, are left on public roads, often scared and not able to be self-sufficient, as we all know the animals grown in home and not in captivity aren’t and will never be able to survive because they can not get food on their own. But why we don’t protect them?
DISCOVER CATS WELFARE
Whenever a person chooses an animal should put in it a microchip in order to identify the owner and where he lives, very often, however, when they are abandoned, they are also wounded because the latter try to remove the microchip under the skin that, otherwise, could be traced back to the owner. We often see people that relocate theirselves, (already wrong in the beginning) or for playing the little son (worse things) they take a dog or a cat. When they understand that Tenerife isn’t the place for them and maybe they have run out of money and they don’t even have the chance to take a return flight to their country, the first thing they do is “throw” their animal that has been a part of the family until a few days before, on the street.
Unfortunately, raising awareness of this problem here in Canaria is very complicated, the Government struggles to manage all this and protect animals, and associations such as Cats Welfare or Defensa Animal intervene without any profit for which you can absolutely count, especially if you are around in Tenerife and find a lost or injured animal.
Tenerife Surprise too found ourselves saving a dog at the end of life, we took care of it and we also managed to get it adopted … there was no greater satisfaction than having helped it. Even today, which is together with his new and beautiful family, as soon as he sees us he understands and meets us wagging his tail.
DISCOVER DEFENSA ANIMAL TENERIFE
Another problem is hunting: when dogs are no longer able to do it, they let them die breaking their legs, or if they have a very strong dog, they make it pair and sell the puppies to disproportionate figures because, according to them, they will be strong like parents.
We wanted to give you a general picture and above all based on our personal experience … if any of you can and wants to help, contact us and we will direct you to where you will need your help.
We remind you to adopt and protect animals and not to buy them: the affection is free!
