This week saw the first fair dedicated to pet animals in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and called Animundo.
The Canary Islands Exhibition Centre, Infecar, hosted 20 stands dedicated to the care of pet animals.
This was an initiative born with a very clear message with two objectives. One is to encourage adoption of pet animals, and the other is responsible and respectful care of pet animals.
The biggest attraction was a ‘catwalk’ where 40 dogs brought from Alberque Insular, dog sanctuary, walked with their human companions, which were all available for adoption.
