Last weekend, Jardim Pescador Olhanense, in Olhão, received a campaign to adopt dogs and cats from the municipal kennel, which proved to be a real success. 15 animals were adopted, which now have a family that gives them affection and attention.

The adoption campaign, which took place from November 12th and 13th, brought together hundreds of people in the main garden of the city of Olho, who were not indifferent to the animals displayed there.

In total, 14 dogs were adopted, especially dogs, and a cat, who thus now have a home and friendly owners who have committed to taking care of them.

This initiative by the Municipality of Olhão, through the Municipal Kennel, aimed to sensitize the population to the need not to abandon animals and encourage adoption, whenever possible, in order to take care of animals with care and responsibility.

In addition to providing clarification to all interested parties about the legal rules for the detention of canids and felines, the owners of the adopted animals were offered to fill in the health bulletin, sterilization, application of an identification microchip and anti-rabies vaccination.

The success of this initiative leads the municipality to consider carrying out a new adoption campaign in time, so that more abandoned animals, which start to live in the kennel, can have a home.

Meanwhile, the third campaign for the sterilization of stray animals is also taking place, which takes place on the 21st, 24th and 28th of November.
