The Montpellier SPA organizes an open day on Saturday May 7 at the refuge of Villeneuve-les-Maguelone. 161 dogs and about fifteen cats are offered at adoption. The animal protection Society took the opportunity to sound the alarm: “For two weeks, in fact, the abandonment of animals rise again in a way disturbing “, announces the association.

The refuge is reaching saturation point

Direct consequence of this phenomenon: the refuge of Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone is already reaching saturation: “We are almost at the maximum of our reception capacity”, confirms the director Marie France Donnadieu.

Doors open on May 7

“Already”, because usually, it is necessary to wait for the summer, the period most favorable to the abandonment of domestic animals, to know such a situation… To deal with the crisis, the Montpellier SPA, which confirms that it will not abandon no animals, organizes an open day on Saturday May 7th. On the program: meetings with the animals of the refuge, cani-cross demonstrations, tombola… A day that may decide families to adopt their future pet.


A call for donations

“We are also launching an appeal for donations”, specifies Marie-France Donnadieu: “We must deal with the resurgence of abandonments and treat, feed and save all these abandoned animals in great distress”.
