The animal-protection group, APAMA has come up with an unusual scheme for promoting animal adoption in Almuñécar; they’re using street litter bins.
APAMA, in collaboration with the Town Hall and the street-cleaning company FCC, has been pasting posters of pets for adoption on litter bins in several places around town.
Accompanying the photos on the pet posters is the contact information for AMPA, so that anybody interested can enquire about the dogs and cats featured.
Bear in mind that the litter bins normally bear adverts so only the ones that are free have been used, but even so they have been able to use at least 20 vacant bins, mostly along the Avenida de Andalucía and on the paseos.
And it appears to be working because on the first day they managed to arrange the adoption of a cat.
AMPA presently has around 40 pets awaiting adoption distributed amongst a score of ‘foster homes.’
