Christmas Village Hosts Animal Adoption Campaign

On Friday the 13th, the Christmas Village in the Town Square, is hosting an animal adoption campaign promoted by Funchal Municipal Kennel through Amais – Madeira Animals Association (Vasco Gil), between 10:00 am and at 4:30 pm.

According to the Vice-President of the Municipality, Idalina Perestrelo, she hopes that everyone will be able to do their bit to help the charity, whether it’s adopting a cat or dog or supplying much needed donations of of essential goods for the adoption centre.

The adoption cost is €20 and includes the animals’ sterilisation, rabies vaccination and microchip.

As this is Christmas, please adopt sensibly and wisely.  As any new home is stressful for an animal who has spent time in a shelter, and they will need time, peace and quiet to connect and feel safe with their new family.

Remember a pet is for life, not just for Christmas.
