Monica planas: She’s a veterinarian and Director of animal home in Castellbisbal. On 3 May 2003, she rescued then by chance, their first dog from there through a random… And she saw the other dogs and puppies waiting for a placement or their euthanasia (killing). She looked in her eyes, saw their souls, their movements – she could here, just don’t go away and forget about them. On this day, this shelter to assume decided.
And it animals should be here never killed again. Unless they were terminally ill. That day changed her life forever and ever since she and her friends Noemi, Rafael, Irene and also her husband Miquel and many other volunteers for animals works. It’s especially to families, to find for these and for other dogs. The work is infinite. Sometimes very tiring and difficult! You must always keep a clear resolve every minute of the day. There is no break and it is difficult to life. But their goal has earned it and they want to help, where they can.
You can survive mainly by the aid and solidarity from Germany. Up to the present day more than 15 000 dogs and cats are killed annually in Spain and on the on the Balearic Islands by State organs, because she would have no one. In addition, several individuals and animal protection societies try to convey a new home each year about 3000 to 5000 animals who would otherwise also lands in the killing stations. Blame for the overpopulation are unscrupulous breeders and animal dealers, and of course the customers who buy young animals as a gift for children and replace then after about a year on the road, or bring to the shelter because they have become a nuisance. The local authorities and the Government, the State Government are one of the largest complicity of the suspension and the overpopulation especially.
