Adoptón 2017

By Jade Arroyo

Adoptón’s first event for the love of animals was held last June 11. It was a totally free family event where puppies and kittens were ready to be adopted. They also offered  services such as vaccinations and sterilizations at a very low price for those who adopted a pet during the event. There was music all day and some stands offered various products for pets.

Around 400 people attended and 72 pets of all ages were adopted, from puppies to adult pets. Follow-up will be provided for these pets to ensure their welfare.

Fernando Tovar Rivo is the person behind this great initiative, a 21 year old with a great love for and commitment to animals. The event was held with the support of Ricardo Ferro and the NGO Juntos Haremos Grandes Cosas. “I decided to put on this event to foster the culture of adoption, to motivate rescuers to use the adoption process, and to invite people to give a new chance to these little ones. I decided to do it in the form of an event and on a Sunday because shelters and some rescuers are not available on Sundays when the whole family can come together,” said Fer. Most of the pets came from the street, rescued by ordinary people, and 8 came from a rescuer named Sandra Echeverría. People felt moved by the street situation of many of the animals who had been collected, bathed, and cared for a few days before this event happened.

PETCO donated a grooming starter kit, prizes, and discounts to all adopters. Sterilizations for 25 puppies were also donated anonymously.

The Adoptón team wishes to thank Ricardo Ferro, NGO Junto Haremos Grandes Cosas, Proyecto Bendita, Fiesta de Vivos y Muertos, and La Gale Arte Contemporáneo.
