Municipal Dog Kennels - La Oliva
#1
La Oliva City Council regrets the abandonment of dogs and requests collaboration for adoption.

The municipal kennel has all the rooms occupied at the moment, a situation derived from the abandonment of hunting and prey dogs coinciding with the summer.

The Municipal La Kennel of La Oliva currently has the 17 rooms of the facilities occupied, a situation that has to do with the abandonment of certain breeds of dogs coinciding with the summer season.

The councilor of the area of Public Health, Rubén González, wanted to report on a reality that "we deeply regret", and invite interested persons "to contact the animal guard or the town hall, visit the facilities and consider the adoption of any of the animals ".

The association that collaborates with the City Council of La Oliva in this process is Fuerteventura Dog Rescue, which has about thirty volunteers participating in animal walks three times a week, in its cleaning, veterinary assistance and coordinating with the city council the process of adoption.

On behalf of this group, Annile Dunn recalled that Fuerteventura Dog Rescue volunteers attend the kennel animals every Thursday, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., and on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 hours. "We are here to take care of the dogs, walk them and socialize them. We are looking for responsible families to help us adopt these dogs that have been abandoned by their owners."

Adoption process

Those interested in collaborating with the adoption of dogs can start the process by contacting this association, on the Facebook page "Fuerteventura Dog Rescue", by email at the address info@fuerteventuradogrescue.org, or with the City Council of La Oliva at the municipal offices of the Department of Public Health (c / Emilio Castellot 2, La Oliva), or by email at the address lucianobu@laoliva.net.

Abandonment of hunting dogs, bardines and prey breeds

Of the twenty specimens that the municipal kennel hosts at the moment, most of them are hunting dogs such as hounds, native breeds such as bardino, or dogs of prey. "It is a huge shame, because it is seen that they are abandoned coinciding with the hunting season or the holidays arrive," Rubén González moved.

"Fortunately, the facilities are still under control," explained the councilor, because "we have a animal in each cabin, and only three shared rooms, in this case, the largest", although "the situation could get worse if animals continue to arrive" .

In this regard, the Councilor for Public Health thanked "in advance for citizen collaboration", and "in a special way the support work done by Fuerteventura Dog Rescue and all its volunteers."

New volunteers are always welcome to come and walk and socialize the dogs, it's a lovely community of all different nationalities and we go for a coffee and a chat after.  Foster homes are also badly needed 🐶

Hi Mia
The initial post has the times and website for information, it is really helpful if new volunteers complete the online form so they know what to expect and the association can give all the correct information out,  then it saves time and hastle on your first visit,  we can then set you on your way for a walk with a dog that will love you forever for just caring enough to come along for a few mornings a week (or whatever time you can spare) 🐕❤

Thank you very much. I will check the website. I hope we will be able to help at least with walking. We would as well like to donate food etc... I guess that's always needed.

We will look forward to meeting you!!
Food is always welcome of course,  especially the gastro type as a lot of the dogs suffer with poorly tummies 😕😕 but really anything that you can afford would be lovely 🤗

Local lad found this Bardino pup living wild the other day and decided to keep it rather than take it to the pound. It's already loving it's new life! I estimate it is under 2 months old.
