Mayor José Cortés Góngora reported that in the face of public pressure from animal groups, social networks and petitions, the sacrifice of street dogs in the city will be canceled.
The Mayor told us that they are a conscious management of animal rights, which we are happy about and hopefully from now on change the situation of stray animals and help them out of the streets.
The Mayor said that "in order to care for progress, dogs and cats will be captured to apply the vaccine, carry out their respective sterilization, and hold them 48 hours in which we invite the population to adopt them."
So we invite all citizens of Progreso to adopt a stray animal.
Many thanks to all those who signed and shared the petition, the citizen pressure serves, this is proof of it.
