Animal shelter in the outskirts of Las Palmas, Bañaderos, Gran Canary, housing what seemed like over hundred dogs and some other animals too, taken in for a number of unknown reasons. According to the shelter’s web site, close to 5000 animals come in each year, the daily account reaching sometimes up to 25 to 30 animals. Most of the dogs seemed to derive from breeds popular these days: Pitbulls and Staffordshire terriers along some other big dogs. In this place, the dogs wait for around 21 days hoping to get a new home after which they are being put down. Vets and care-takers work long days to help these animals dependent on humans for food and shelter.

A text written on the wall of the veterinary’s room reminds people how their way of treating pets might pass on to their own children.
