ACTIN, making changes for animals in Spain.

Animal care Treatment International Network has been set up to make changes for the animals in Spain, who suffer abandonment and cruelty. What we plan to do is to bring awareness of the problems to the world’s media. We need to promote education, new legislation and support neutering campaigns. It is necessary to get support Internationally to put pressure to bear on the Spanish government and to persuade them to take more responsibility for the lack of animal welfare in Spain. ACTIN plans in the future to bring about these changes through media awareness. Actin will tell the truth of how it is on an everyday basis, particularly in the country villages of Murcia, where there is a lot of ignorance and abuse. They will tell of what the volunteers deal with and how the abuse of animals is getting worse. ACTIN will endeavor to bring about campaigns for sterilization and education in schools. There is a need for a Society to protect the animals and this is what ACTIN aim to do in the future but we need much support to achieve our aims.

Important information just released, which Viv, President of ACTIN-SPAIN has translated into English here:-

The citizen's Initiative Fund 337 grant 2,550 EUR to the Association that denounced the cruelty of the pound in Mazarron, Murcia.

Outraged by the animal abuse cases and inactivity by some authorities in Spain, a group of citizens launched a collection of funds aiming to help these types of cases, to ensure they are punished. The 337 Fund was created in 2011, following the published images of a puppy tortured until his death; this set up in order to provide support to support those that report these cases of cruelty to animals.

In this case, the 2,550 euro fund will be given to the Actin Association, de Asociacion de Defensa Animal, for its complaint of animal abuse against the company Esprineco SL, gestora a privately owned kennel in Mazarron. With legal counsel DeAnimals Office, the complainant accuses this Kennel of causing suffering and death to various animals.

In the month of December 2013, more than 20 dogs from these facilities which had been adopted by the complainant Association died of Parvovirus and injuries and along with their research were given written statements of more than twenty witnesses, (several individuals and four protectoras in the area), all of them are witnesses complainants in criminal proceedings in the denunciation, and also several veterinarians reportedly revealed a bleak picture.

The complaints against Esprineco include that they kept dogs in its facilities in Mazarrón in very cruel conditions: insufficient food, dirt, excrement, parasites and an extreme lack of veterinary assistance against injury or serious ailments. 

ACTIN also denounces that terrified cats are introduced in the same cages with dogs, and all of this, while Esprineco receive public Treasury money to cater for these vulnerable animals, the Kennel has been responsible for continued animal abuse," killing of several dogs and cats. Currently Esprineco SL has subscribed contracts for collection and custody of animals abandoned in more than 10 municipalities of Murcia.

Thanks to this complaint, three members of Esprineco have already been charged and called to testify before the judge, for an alleged crime of animal abuse. The company has also been denounced by alleged misappropriation (for the Association animals Alhama), scam and fraud to finance and health.

The 337 Fund representatives expect that this financial support can be used by ACTIN to cover expenses related to the complaint and support efforts to obtain an exemplary sentence. The Fondo warning to councils, such as the one in Mazarrón; they cannot escape its responsibility to animal abuse cases, especially when it comes to the expressly contracted companies to serve the municipality of custody of animals, it’s a public service and inescapable of its obligation and that should be consistent.


Whilst numerous witnesses agree in their statements before the judge that this pound mistreats animals repeatedly, by kicking, and that many of the dogs and cats have injuries and fractures visible, still today, the Mazarrón City Hall and the de Alhama de Murcia have not sanctioned or ceased the contract with the company Esprineco, and the Ayuntamiento of Totana, has renewed the contract of collection of animals with the company even though it has been denounced for cruelty to animals.

Esprineco company sold their services to councils by saying in their contract, quote "we are different to other companies we do not sacrifice healthy animals".

To request the citizens who raised the money, the 337 Fund is administered jointly by animal rights Association releases!, Foundation Altarriba, Justice Animal, GEHVA and Zoological Society de Extremadura.

Recompensa Fondo 337 - Torturador de perros
La iniciativa ciudadana Fondo 337 otorgará 2550 euros a la entidad que denunció la crueldad de una perrera en Murcia.

Indignados ante los casos de maltrato animal y la inactividad de algunas autoridades en España, un grupo de ciudadanos puso en marcha una colecta de fondos con el objetivo de ayudar a que este tipo de casos fueran sancionados. El Fondo 337 fue creado en 2011 a raíz de las imágenes publicadas de un cachorro torturado hasta su muerte, con el fin de ofrecer un apoyo para respaldar denuncias fundadas de estos casos de crueldad hacia animales.

En este caso, una recompensa de 2550 euros será otorgada a la asociación de defensa animal ACTIN Asociacion de defensa animal, por su denuncia de maltrato animal contra la empresa Esprineco SL, gestora de una perrera privada en Mazarrón. Con la asistencia letrada del despacho DeAnimals, la denunciante acusa a esta perrera de provocar el sufrimiento y la muerte de varios animales.

El pasado mes de diciembre, más de 20 perros procedentes de estas instalaciones que habían sido adoptados por la asociación denunciante fallecieron por parvovirosis y lesiones. A partir de ahí, la investigación de la asociación, y las declaraciones escritas de más de veinte testigos (varios particulares y cuatro protectoras de la zona) siendo todos ellos testigos denunciantes en el procedimiento penal de la denuncia, y los informes de varios veterinarios, revelaban un panorama desolador.

Según la denunciante, Esprineco mantiene a los perros en sus instalaciones de Mazarrón en condiciones muy crueles: alimentación insuficiente, suciedad extrema, parásitos y falta de asistencia veterinaria frente a lesiones o dolencias graves. ACTIN denuncia además que gatos aterrorizados son introducidos en las mismas jaulas con perros, y que “a pesar de que Esprineco recibe dinero del erario público para atender a estos animales vulnerables, la perrera ha sido responsable de un maltrato animal continuado, causando la muerte de varios perros y gatos”. Actualmente Esprineco SL tiene suscritos contratos de recogida y custodia de animales abandonados con 10 ayuntamientos de Murcia.

Gracias a esta denuncia, tres personas pertenecientes a Esprineco han sido ya imputadas y llamadas a declarar ante el Juez, por un presunto delito de maltrato animal. La empresa ha sido denunciada además por presunta apropiación indebida (por la asociación Peludines Alhama), estafa y fraude a Hacienda y Sanidad.

Representantes del Fondo 337 esperan que este apoyo económico pueda ser empleado por ACTIN para cubrir los gastos relacionados con la denuncia y respaldar esfuerzos dirigidos a obtener una condena ejemplar. El Fondo alerta que los ayuntamientos, como el de Mazarrón, no pueden eludir su responsabilidad ante casos de maltrato animal, máxime cuando se trata de empresas expresamente contratadas para prestar el servicio municipal de custodia de animales, un servicio público y competencia ineludible del consistorio.

A pesar de que numerosos testigos coinciden en sus declaraciones ante el juez en que la perrera maltrata a los animales propinándoles patadas, y que un gran número de perros y gatos tienen lesiones y fracturas visibles, a día de hoy, el Ayuntamiento de Mazarrón y el de Alhama de Murcia NO han sancionado ni cesado el contrato con la empresa Esprineco, y el Ayuntamiento de Totana, ha renovado el contrato de recogida de animales con la empresa denunciada por crueldad hacia los animales.

La empresa Esprineco se vende a los Ayuntamientos en su contrato diciendo textualmente "Somos diferentes a otras empresas NO SACRIFICAMOS ANIMALES SANOS".

A petición de los ciudadanos que recaudaron el dinero, el Fondo 337 es administrado conjuntamente por Asociación Animalista Libera!, Fundación Altarriba, Justicia Animal, GEHVA y Sociedad Zoológica de Extremadura.
