The Cinco Patas civil association has spent six years working jointly with society to rescue and protect dogs and cats in vulnerable situations.
On this occasion they need to raise $45,000 pesos to carry out a sterilization campaign for pets with low-income owners in the city of Mérida for the fourth consecutive year.
As part of the work to gather that amount, the civil association, along with Dr. René González Puerto and his group of interpreters offered a workshop of sign language at the classrooms of the CTM school, with great participation of the citizenship.
The Yucatecan, who is the first hearing impaired person in the world to obtain a doctorate, joined the cause after learning the story of “Dobby” and “Canela”, two puppies that the association rescued and rehabilitated to later be adopted by Cristina Puga and Ángel Paz, their interpreters, who have also taught this language to canines.
This is the first time this workshop is held, which also seeks to improve the inclusion in the state and after the great acceptance plans to open more dates.
A total of 360 dogs and cats have benefited from these campaigns, which have been carried out in previous years in San José Tecoh, Mulchechén and Cholul, and this time 100 more would be added to the list.
So far, the fourth campaign is planned to take place in the west side of the city, but the date would not be defined until sufficient resources are obtained to carry out this task.
Those interested in helping this cause can make donations ranging from five pesos. For more information, you can call (999) -338-6942 or get in touch through their Facebook page “Cinco Patas A. C.”.
