Progreso, Yucatán (January 25, 2021).- “It is a great responsibility, but also an opportunity not only for these poor animals but also for us when we make them part of our family,” said Mayor Julián Zacarías Curi after attending this morning Subdirectorate of Ecology to meet two puppies who are looking for a home, this as part of the culture of adoption that the Zacarías administration wants to promote.
Zacarías Curi was received by the head of the Subdirectorate of Ecology, the biologist Mabel Aguirre Quinto, who explained that two two-month-old dogs are currently waiting for a home, “Chiquitina” and “Pulgosa”, who are in good health and very affectionate.

“They are given an adoption contract where the commitment they are making is reiterated, the document is filled out with the owner’s data and a copy of an official identification is attached. We, as Ecology, provide medical care to the puppies or kittens, so that when they arrive at their new home they are in perfect condition, we also follow up on each case ”, indicated the biologist.

Therefore, the mayor thanked the staff of the Department of Ecology for the commitment they have and their interest in transmitting to the rest of the population how important it is to take care of our environment and exercise responsible tenure.
