'Dogwalk' show at Valencia Bioparc: 40 rescued pooches seeking new homes
04 May 2019 @ 16:48

AROUND 40 abandoned dogs seeking new homes will hit the catwalk – or maybe 'dogwalk' – at Valencia's Bioparc in two weeks' time, showing off how cute they are to potential mums and dads.

They have all been rescued by, or handed in to, the Adopta Un Perro Abandonado ('Adopt an Abandoned Dog', or AUPA) association, which holds a 'pooch parade' every year in the city to raise awareness of their animals' plight.

“Anyone who comes along on Sunday, May 19 will find a family-friendly, festive atmosphere overflowing with animal love,” says AUPA.

Potential adopters, or anyone who owns or is thinking about owning a pet, can get advice from the organisers at the show and get to know the dogs and stroke them.

Among those who will definitely be on stage are Melchor, a two-year-old who loves people; Maxi, a 15-month-old fun and playful pitbull; Gaia, nine months old and very happy and affectionate; and Nesto, a pensioner of nine years old who was found dumped in an appalling condition and horribly malnourished, but who is very calm, obedient and affectionate, having never lost his faith in the human race and calmly grateful for being rescued.

“We have dogs of every size, breed and age who have encountered the cruellest side of human nature and are now looking for a second chance to prove to us that they really are our best friends,” AUPA says.

“But adopting a dog should always be a premeditated decision, never a whim or an emotional or irresponsible action – taking on an animal is an enormous responsibility.
