A bit of history
To deal with cases of abuse from the beginning it became one of the main tasks of BALDEA. In addition, a complaint supported by various associations gains weight, which involves a change of attitude on the part of the authorities. Unfortunately this is not always the case and many times cases are not solved satisfactorily.
One of the objectives is Baldea is to achieve greater involvement of the competent authorities in cases of abuse. Fighting for a reform of the animal protection law 1/92 and modify its implementing regulations has always been a priority, but we know that real change will only happen when the society is aware and respects all living beings the way they deserve. That is why one of our most important projects is focusing on education in schools.
We also try that city council are involved in the control of feline colonies with a proper funding maintenence and a proper sterilization; Cats keep rodents and beetles at bay, this is something that benefits the town. This results, in the medium term, cheaper and more ethical to let them reproduce on their own, and to become a pest that cause nuisance to neighbors and forces to capture them, keep them in a cattery for 21 days and then put them down because wild cats are not adoptable. We can not forget that a cat giving birth just to 12 kittens throughout her life can generate over 28,000 new cats in 5 years.
