Centre backed by private donations
An animal protection centre in Tenerife has received a welcome donation from one of the island’s big companies.
Healthcare business, Bayer has presented 400 antiparasitic collars to the island’s Cabildo so they could be given to the Animal Protection Centre “Tierra Blanca” located on a finca at Valiera (Fasnia).
The centre is run by the Cabildo with private help, such as from Loro Parque and the president of SOS-Proyects, Renate Thyssen-Henne amon-gst others. It currently looks after some 400 abandoned dogs.
Bayer representatives, Mario Montes and Zaloa Izaguirre stressed the special sensitivity of Tenerife with such animals.
Tierra Blanca has a site of more than 2,600 square metres with compartments for the animals, outside patios and a veterinary clinic amongst its facilities.
