QCOSTARICA – In Coris, on land owned by the Municipality of Cartago, will be the first Municipal Education Care Centre for stray dogs, where the street animals will be fully looked after and castrated, giving them hope for adoption.

The program, at an initial investment of ¢75 million colones, will be a pioneer in the field, attended by a veterinarian and volunteers, plus we’ll have talks on training, especially for children, how to treat these animals.

The centre will accommodate 120 stray dogs, which will be picked up from the streets in special vehicles.

Construction is expected to start this month, with an expected opening next February, according to the mayor of Cartago, Rolando Rodriguez.

The mayor explained is to not have the animals live locked up or suffer the brutality of the streets, especially in the areas of the central part of the city and the municipal market.

Rodriguez said that the city has experienced a growth in the population of stray dogs, which increases every year with the pilgrimage to the Virgen de los Angeles, when some people bring their dogs on the “romeria”, cruelly, to purposely abandon them.
