Veterinary assistance for animals of homeless people

altarriba_capcelera

Did you know that it is estimated that between 5-10% of homeless people have a pet that provides them with deep emotional support?

Animals do not judge, they do not discriminate, they provide a sense of self-esteem and they offer unconditional loyalty. In fact, according to various studies carried out on homeless people, animals foster a sense of responsibility and they reward with affection the fulfilment of this responsibility. In addition, by acting as silent witnesses, they can steer their owners away from risky behaviours, thus allowing the construction of a positive moral identity. Moreover, homeless people who share their lives with pets are less likely to be depressed and are less likely to exhibit potentially harmful behaviours, such as drug use.

logo-fundacion-altarriba-292Homeless people cannot afford veterinary assistance for their pets so, in this context, Fundación Altarriba wants to provide solutions to this problem and pay for veterinary expenses of these animals.

As you know, the community of Mascoteros has been collaborating with us in the financing of different social projects related to animal cause. From its beginning they have collaborated with Fundación Daina and Amigos del Perro to facilitate a home for abandoned dogs.

They have the opportunity now to collaborate with Fundación Altarriba to facilitate homeless people with pets have access to veterinary services.

With their help, 100 pets of homeless people will have access to veterinary assistance.

A home for abandoned dogs

worldcoo-amigosperro-acogida

nuevologomascoterosOur friends from Mascoteros, the online shop for pets and animals, have proved being one of the most social committed. Few days ago, we announced that they had completed their first challenge, in which they have helped Daina Foundation to fight against the abandonment of elderly dogs.  Crispín, Conan or Atila were some of the dogs that they helped with all their contributions. If you want, you can remember the project HERE.

In this second occasions, they will collaborate with Amigos del Perro Foundation, an entity that develops different activities, from the collection of abandoned animals, until the reintegration of the same ones in new families through the adoption.

There are also animals that need socialization and education. In all these cases, a foster house is the solution.

Fosters houses are also very important in cases where the dog is already booked but it will take some time until it is collected. During this time, the dog is educated and socialized so that when he reaches his new family, the adaptation is easy and fast.

The new challenge of Mascoteros will be now ensure the maintenance and veterinary care in the Foster Home to abandoned dogs and promote their adoption.

#CompromisoMascoteros, the first social program of Mascoteros

We introduce you our first ecommerce with cause dedicated to pets!

mascoteros_900They are Mascoteros, the first Spanish marketplace related to the world of pets.  If you didn’t know them you will now have opportunity to do it, because they just have joined to Worldcoo community with their new initiative #MascoterosCommitment.

Though this new initiative, they will offer their customers the opportunity to add done, two or five euros to each purchase they do and contribute to the defense of animal rights, one of its main commitments.

logo-dainaIn their first challenge, they will help Conan and three more dogs who, like him, live in one of the refuges of the Fundation for the Defense of Animals and Nature, an entity created by the Animal Protection Society of Mataró (spAm).

When Conan arrived at the Foundation, more than 10 years ago, he had clear signs of neglect and he was quite thin. After different therapies, Conan is now a loving and obedient dog, fully prepared to find a new home.

The total amount collected by Mascoteros users will go to “Great animals for great people” program, and with it, the Foundation will  guarantee the life support and veterinary care of Conan and three other older dogs found. Something that will undoubtedly promote its adoption.

Demis Torres, CEO of Mascoteros tells us that “the agreement with Worldcoo allows us to take a step forward in the defense and promotion of animal rights. There are many entities that today do not have the necessary resources to ensure the maintenance and veterinary treatment of the animals they welcome and we are so happy to be able to contribute through our community and in the long term.

The project was launched this morning and the donations were not long in coming! If you want, you can follow the donation process live HERE.
