The Provincial Council of Granada has begun a programme for finding homes for strays in coordination with town halls entitled, Zero Deaths.
The programme is part of a larger Environmental Department programme called Control and Management Programme for Fauna and Urban Plagues, which is funding the campaign.
The idea is round up stray cats and dogs and find them a home, rather than having them put down.
Up to now, the provincial programme for rounding up strays was designed for municipalities of fewer than 20,000 inhabitants with a capacity of 758 animals a year. With the Zero Deaths programme the number is expanded to 1,000 animals and the provincial animal refuge has been enlarged to be able to hold a greater number and over a larger time period in order to find them homes.
