He added that Huellita with Causa seeks coordination with the municipal authorities, it is better to sterilize dogs and cats on time, than to try to solve a future problem of overpopulation of this fauna.
“We must remember that a bitch and its offspring in 7 years generate 67 thousand offspring and in the case of cats 420 thousand offspring in 7 years, we always make the indication to both the government and civil society that it would be more beneficial to sterilize to that bitch, that cat or that male, or rescue, attend, rehabilitate, to all that world of dogs and cats in a street situation or in irresponsible hands, of course, the root solution is sterilization. “
He recalled that in Mazatlan there is already an overpopulation of cats in certain areas of the city, which causes the Department of Ecology to constantly receive reports of abandoned cats.
Hence the importance of supporting this type of campaign that unites authorities and civil society organized for the benefit of public health and animals.
