COVID-19 pandemic has affected not only people but dogs and cats, animals which have no home. That’s the reason why the shelter Evolucion Animal, located in Merida, Yucatan, is asking for help.
The volunteers at the shelter is facing problems to collect resources needed to feed 350 dogs, 200 cats and two pigs which have been rescued from the streets.
Restrictions due sanitary measures provoked that the association “Evolución Animal”, located in the Merida-Uman road, stopped stray animal rescues in this city.
In the same way as other civil associations, pandemic has hit this refuge in which it works a veterinarian and six permanent volunteers:
“By now we don’t have a backup for taking care of more lives, precisely because we are overcrowded, exceeded in outstanding payments to veterinarians and without any resources for feeding the animals”, the activist and president from the refuge Silvia Cortés explained.
Evolución Animal’s team has tried to improve their incomes with raffles and product selling for fund-raising, but it’s not been enough.
That’s why they repeat the calling to the general population that wish to donate money or any other kind of support, including animal food.
