Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal and Mayor Renán Barrera Concha of Mérida conducted a tour to verify the progress of the construction of the first Public Veterinary Hospital in Yucatán and the entire Southeast. This project is a result of the Mérida 2050 Declaration “Working Together” and represents a joint investment of over 20,107,437 pesos.
At the site located in the western part of the capital, Vila Dosal and Barrera Concha supervised the development of what will become a modern space, contributing to the improvement of animal welfare infrastructure and the protection and care of their health.
In this context, Vila Dosal reiterated the commitment to continue promoting the changes that Yucatán needs in order to deliver a better state to future generations. Therefore, they will continue working as a team with the Mérida City Council, supporting everyone’s well-being.
Mayor Renán Barrera Concha of Mérida emphasized the importance of participation and collaborative work with society in designing successful strategies and policies that enhance the quality of life for all residents of the municipality, ensuring a dignified and healthy development.
He highlighted the collaborative efforts with the Governor, which have resulted in programs and actions that include proposals from civil society. Examples of these initiatives are the Peek Park veterinary modules in the Ampliación Juan Pablo II subdivision and the Chichén Itzá neighborhood, as well as programs like “Adopt a Friend!” and the “Waiting for You” app, which provide accessible and fast options for responsible pet adoption.
