Through 4 working axes: 1) Animal welfare (rescue, shelter, medical care, vaccination and spay and neuter); 2) Adoption Promotion; 3) Dog Education and 4) Citizen Awareness, ANIMALIX AC contributes to improve the quality of life of animals in street situations and irresponsible owners. With this, it also improves the health and safety of citizens, the protection of the environment and creates positive values of human-animal respect in San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico.
The Municipal Canine Control Center (CECAM) estimates that between 5 and 10 thousand dogs and unquantifiable number of cats live sick, malnourished, mutilated and without reproductive control in the streets of the city. In addition to being exposed to physical and emotional abuse, they are a serious public health and safety problem. Mexico is third in the world in cruelty to animals, but governments and the majority of citizens still indifferent to the situation of animals.
ANIMALIX AC will organize campaigns for the spay and neuter of dogs and cats; will vaccinate against rabies, DHLPP and will provide parasites to the animals; will work on rescues of injured dogs and in danger of death. This will prevent the uncontrolled reproduction and suffering of more animals on the street and in the homes of poor families. It will also give awareness workshops on animal welfare for children between 4 and 12 years, to combat abuse and indifference.
In four years, ANIMALIX AC has carried out 29 bimonthly sterilization campaigns at low cost and 3 free, in total 1792 dogs and cats have been spay and neuter. He has made 150 rescues and given up to 350 animals. It has also vaccinated against rabies at 952 and dewormed at 935. With greater economic resources we would reduce the birth rate of animals on the street, we would increase the number of supports and free services for animal welfare, to avoid their suffering.
