Due to the threat posed by Hurricane “Beryl” in Yucatán, dog and cat shelters prepared to protect the animals.

Silvia Cortés Castillo, president of Evolución Animal, A. C., commented that they planned to care for animals that became too nervous with the storm, using products indicated by veterinarians.

She said they prepared to protect the more than 700 animals in the shelter.

“We are putting them in crates and placing them in all roofed and concrete areas,” said the rescuer. “We are using the office, the bathrooms, all solid construction areas.”

Maribel Sánchez Valencia, founder of Mano Canina Albergue, commented they used two properties with safe houses to protect the animals.

“We improvise shelters inside (the building) so that no dog is left outdoors; some with platforms, others with canvas, with ironwork. Some are separated, others in groups, depending on how they live together,” she said.

Silvia Cortés pointed out that the shelter has a surplus of animals, so they improvised measures to protect them.

“We do not have another place and request support from society to temporarily protect them so, after the contingency, they can return,” added the rescuer.

Both shelters have different needs. However, they still need the support of society.

“We request food because of the several animals in the shelter, plus those we already have. We also need healing material because those who cannot protect themselves who are on the street, we do not know what they may need and be able to help them,” said Maribel Sánchez.

Silvia Cortés highlighted that if someone wishes to donate, they would appeal to their trust for monetary donations due to lack of space.

She indicated they are registered with the Treasury and can provide a tax-deductible receipt. In addition, he commented that another way to support is with houses or food after the storm.

Likewise, people can support the shelters with gauze, bandages, antiseptics, paper and cloth tapes, hydrogen peroxide, and topical antibiotics.
