“Pets are not toys”, says Mayor
The Mayor of Adeje has urged people to take better care of their pets.
José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga says the number of abandonments has increased in the municipality and he fears it could get worse this summer because of holidays.
It is not just cats and dogs which are being found on the streets either. Horses have been abandoned in the mountain-side as well.
Launching a campaign of awareness, the Mayor said pet owners had to understand their responsibilities and take them seriously.
“Pets are not toys,” he stressed.
Adeje has also asked owners to make sure they clean up after their dogs when they foul the verges or pavements.
