Did you know that in 2019 more than 135,000 dogs were rescued by protective societies in Spain? It is too high a figure, which is also repeated in recent years as if to be overlooked. Therefore, from dewormed atumascota .co.uk we want to help reverse this situation.
We want to support the fight against abandonment and raise awareness about the importance of responsible adoption and how to treat pets once they arrive at home. So we decided to create:
Together with the solidarity of Andres Lopez, we want to give the visibility that these dogs and dogs deserve.
He carries out his “Invisible” photographic project where he portrays abandoned dogs and dogs, living in kennels, shelters, and shelters, and uses his resources to show them attractive and desirable to encourage their possibility of adoption.
“I’M LOOKING FOR THEM TO STOP BEING INVISIBLE, BECAUSE WHEN A DOG ENTERS A KENNEL IT DISAPPEARS, IT CEASES TO EXIST, NOBODY ASKS FOR IT,” ANDRÉS EXPLAINS.
Can you help us to help?
Only by creating and sharing your photo AdoptCam, with the hashtag # NoLesAbandono, in your social networks, and among your circle, you help us spread the initiative. The more we share the message, the more people we will raise awareness about abandonment and responsible adoption.
In AdoptCam you will be able to know real stories like Betty’s, a Persian dog who, along with her brother, were abandoned in a sad state, with a notable lack of minimal food and hygiene care. Although Betty is now recovered in a shelter of the Agata protective association, she is looking for a stable place to live. Or the history of Kyiv, a dog that roamed the surroundings of the town of Torrejón de Ardoz, in Madrid, devoured by leishmaniosis, a broken front leg that had healed alone producing a permanent malformation and hunger, malnourished, in the bones. He was rescued by the protective HOOPE that manages the municipal CPA of this town of Madrid and is gradually gaining weight. Kyiv needs a home to heal and a family to cure him of the hunger for love.
These and more stories of dogs are some of the thousands of situations that exist today. If you want to adopt one of these pets, you can contact their respective protector and change their history forever.
But first of all, are you ready to have a pet? This is an essential reflection. Take the test and get a guide with advice and recommendations to make the adoption a more responsible decision.
Before becoming an adult worm inside the dogs – definitive host -, the Dipylidium or tapeworm must pass through one or two larval phases within other intermediate hosts, which may be mainly rodents (in the case of tapeworms) or fleas (in the case of Dipylidium), who have ingested the feces of infected dogs and, rarely, some freshwater fish. In the case of rodent hunter cats, it is easy for the larvae developed inside the rodent to reach the digestive tract of the dogs, settle there until it becomes adult worms and lay eggs to start a new life cycle. More common is the infestation through the intake of other external parasites, fleas, which act as intermediaries. If the dogs are infested with fleas that have ingested Dipylidium eggs, it is very common that, during grooming and grooming, our pet ingests some by licking its hair and then the fleas reach the stomach of the feline, where the larvae will decompose and release that will get caught in the lining of the small intestine and begin the life cycle of tapeworm.
