We believe that a change is urgently needed in the way the authorities deal with animal mistreatment. The local police is the main force involved in these cases. Many times the procedure is not good enough because they have not been properly instructed for this aim.
Thanks to our constant effort Palma has a new police brigade, UPA (Unidad proteccion animal), for animal protection. This is the first one in whole of Spain!!!
Already in 2011 Baldea takes the first step and trains 200 police officers in a 3 day course on all the balaric islands to show them how to approach different situations where abandoned, lost or mistreated animals are involved. It was a big success…now it’s a dream come true!
