(MERIDA, YUC. – CEMCA).- The Municipal Center for Animal Control (CEMCA) during 2021 sheltered a little more than a thousand felines and canines that arrived due to various situations such as abandonment of the street, delivered directly, due to loss of their owners and citizen reports; Of all the cases, 40 percent were adopted and the other 30 percent were recovered by their owners.

Many of the little animals that arrived, through the “Adopt a Little Friend of CEMCA” campaign on social networks and the Fauna Mérida website, have been given a second chance, as they have been successfully given up for adoption. Also, through the Waiting for You App, citizens interested in adopting a pet can access the characteristics and photographs of the dogs and cats that are available.

The return of stray animals to their original owners represents 30 percent of the animal departures they record. When an animal is found, it is given a temporary stay and is waiting for its owner to appear.

In our State there is a lack of culture of animal care, since pets are treated as objects and not as beings that give love to people, so it is important to raise awareness that they deserve dignified and loving treatment, so that complaints are taken into account when there are acts or omissions against animals, such as repeated neglect in the place where they live, such as poor ventilation, mobility and hygiene conditions, lack of water and adequate food , lack of timely veterinary attention, that they are in a state of abandonment, that they are caged or tied for eight hours or more, in overcrowding, without sufficient space for mobility or in the open. It is also aware of those actions or omissions that cause physical deterioration,

If a person wishes to adopt an animal from CEMCA, it is necessary to present the following documents: copies of the INE, CURP and proof of address, fill out an adoption evaluation form, have a fence and gate in their new home and send the evidence in Photos.

If your application is accepted, you must attend the CEMCA with the collar and leash, sign the responsive adoption letter and the wildlife regulations, as well as in accordance with the sterilization performed on your pet and the subsequent veterinary review.

In the case of seeing any canine or feline causing problems on public roads, attacking people or other animals, or suffering any type of aggression, you can call (999) 611 02 50 or the Ayuntatel (999) 924 40 00 Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
