Around 100 dogs kept at Għammieri, some of whom of pure breed, are waiting for a family to care for them. The dogs held by the Animal Welfare Department were abandoned by their owners.
As one enters into the abandoned dogs section at Għammieri, one hears the barking of a great amount of dogs waiting for someone to come along and adopt them. At Għammieri there are more than one hundred dogs, all in good health and well cared for, with a big number of them aged between a year and two years.
Animal Welfare Department chief, Noel Montebello, said that department cannot accept more dogs because of lack of space.
“These are beautiful dogs, waiting for a family. We have the advantage of dog friendly beaches and I always appeal to those intending to buy a dog, to instead adopt a dog from here”.
Those interested in adopting one of the dogs may contact the Animal Welfare Department at Għammieri.
