More than thirty dogs and cats are up for adoption at Animal Domus

This week we visited Animal Domus. Since its opening, the number of adoptions has exceeded 7,600. That is to say, more than 7,600 families have offered a home and affection to some of the dogs and cats that, due to different circumstances, luckily, ended up in this Animal Protection Centre. From Animal Domus, they ask for a chance for them. "They need to get out of here, have a family, be with other people, other dogs, what they need most is love, affection, and to be happy", says the person in charge of the zoosanitary park, Jennifer Haro, who explains that the adoption process is simple and free of charge. "They leave our facilities with a microchip, passport, rabies vaccination, dewormed internally and externally, and sterilised, with their polyvalent vaccination. Adoptions are free of charge, only the animal's veterinary expenses are paid", explains Haro. 

When adopting, it is important that the adopting family gets advice from the Animal Domus staff: "We are here to guide the families, we know the dogs, and we try to adapt the character of the dog to the type of family that comes to adopt". The main objective is to avoid that, once the dog is adopted, it is returned to the shelter due to incompatibility with the family. Fortunately, in the last year and a half, there has only been one case of this type. "I try to be very honest with the families, and if I see that the dog they are interested in does not initially fit the profile of the family I let them know. It's true that people let me guide them quite a lot so, in that sense, I'm very happy", says Haro.  

Another option, if they can't provide a home for some of these dogs, but they love animals, is to dedicate some of their time to them as a volunteer, says the person in charge: "Volunteers are expected, firstly, to like animals, and then to be committed, that is, to have the time and the will, because if they don't come that day, the dog won't go for a walk". 

We remind you that the doors of Animal Domus are open mornings and afternoons, Monday to Friday (from 10am to 2pm and from 4pm to 6pm) and Saturday mornings (from 10am to 2pm). 

Up for adoption

In the following lines we invite you to meet some of the dogs that are up for adoption. We are talking about Indio, a lovely German Shepherd. He was rescued from the road and his owner did not want to take care of him. "He has a great character, he is good with other dogs, he is obedient, playful, young and sociable", describes Haro.

During our visit we are introduced to two adorable puppies: Nala and Timon, as sweet as the Lion King characters. "Timon is a Breton mix, he is four or five months old, we found him on the street abandoned with a collar, but nobody has claimed him and he had no microchip. He's a dog who will be very active as an adult, he's really nervous, gets on great with other dogs and eats perfectly", says the person in charge.

Then there is Golfo, who was rescued at night, lost in the countryside. This water dog mix is very funny, friendly and playful. He is looking for his ideal family, says Haro: "He needs a family that has enough energy, that goes out to do a lot of exercise and that doesn't have other dogs at home. He is a loving dog, he will be wherever you are".

We also met Señorita, who arrived at Animal Domus in very bad condition. In fact, she is pending surgery for a tumour on her backside. "She was lying in the middle of some bushes, she couldn't move, she had her nails stuck in her pads and many wounds on her face". As for her behaviour... She is shy with strangers, but then she makes herself loved.

And last, but not least, we meet Leo, the grandpa pincher... You only have to spend a short time with him to see that he is a very noble little dog. "The main problem with Leo is that because he is so old, people don't want to adopt him, but he is very sociable, affectionate, he is always looking for contact with you", says Haro.

He seems to have soon forgotten how he came to Animal Domus. He is looking for a home where he can spend his retirement. "He came to us a couple of months ago, during a week of torrential rains, and when we arrived at the facilities in the morning we realised that he had been thrown over the wall, which is two metres high. He was soaking wet, scared to death, shattered, we left him in the hospital to see how he would evolve, and for days he didn't want to go out". 

You can find out more about Indio, Nala, Timón, Golfo, Señorita and Leo through their Instagram profile and by writing via Whatsapp (695 269 606), but also get to know other dogs that are up for adoption and others that have been recently adopted such as Reina, Iron or Max.
