The councilor of Protection and Animal Health of the City Council of Pilar de la Horadada, José Francisco Albaladejo, has said that a service will now be provided for stray animals in the municipality.
The purpose of the service is to provide veterinary assistance to animals that have been abandoned or injured on public roads, which will be carried out without any cost.
“With this we want to work closely with the public, making everyone aware that should they come across a dog, cat, or any other animal that has been injured or abandoned on public roads they can take it to la Clínica Veterinaria del Sureste where it will not cost a single euro. Should the owner of the animal be located, however, it will be they who are required to take care of the veterinary cost.”
In addition, any resident can call la Clínica Veterinaria del Sureste by telephone so that the animal can be rescued. The telephone number is 965 35 24 38, and it will be manned from Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. There is also a 24-hour emergency telephone on 630 99 47 44.
Albaladejo stressed that this pioneering contract is intended to improve the quality of service and care for animals in Pilar de la Horadada.
