THE animals being cared for by the Centro Canino are gradually being found new homes as the general public leaps to the aid of the animal refuge which is facing closure.

On Monday, six dogs and a cat were adopted while a further three dogs were “reserved” and, during the course of yesterday, that figure grew further. In total, the Centro Canino started the week looking for new homes for a little over 30 animals to protect them from being transfered by Palma city council to the municipal animal pound at Son Reus. The Centro Canino has until March 15 to find new and safe homes for its animals. Palma city councillor for health, Begoña Sanchez, said this week that the animal refuge will be closed down before March 15.
