Ten dog puppies were abandoned in a box in Pitigliano (Grosseto), in the locality of Madonna delle Grazie. This was announced by the municipal administration explaining that the puppies were rescued and transported to the Dog Farm in Ribolla, where they are receiving all the necessary care.
«It is a serious act on which we want to go all the way. – says Serena Falsetti, municipal councilor for the Environment, Youth and Social Services – Abandoning animals is a criminal offense and since it is not the first time that puppies are found in a box near the Madonna delle Grazie, it is assumed that the perpetrators may be people who do not live very far away. Meanwhile, the Municipal Police are investigating. If necessary, we will also check the footage from the cameras present in the municipal area. Some citizens have shown sensitivity and civic sense by reporting situations and movements that are being examined by the staff who are carrying out the investigations. Since it is the third consecutive year that whole litters are abandoned and the Municipality takes care of these dogs, incurring significant costs, we ask citizens for maximum cooperation and we appeal to any witnesses to contact the Municipal to help us trace the author of this unfortunate gesture “.
Soon – the puppies of medium-large sized dogs, probably crossed with the Maremma shepherd – will be available for adoption by contacting the municipal office on 0564 616322 internal 9 or on 348 400 3001.
In the meantime, the municipality is investigating through the municipal police to trace the perpetrators of this uncivilized gesture. «For several years the Municipality of Pitigliano has been successfully carrying out the campaign for the adoption of dogs kept in the affiliated kennel – continues Serena Falsetti -. In addition to these puppies there are many other wonderful specimens looking for a family. For dogs that have been in kennels for a longer time, a small financial aid is also provided for those who decide to adopt them: 400 euros for dogs in custody at the kennel for at least 3 years; 300 euros for those who adopt a dog of at least one year of age who is in custody in the kennel from 180 days to less than 3 years; a contribution of 200 euros for those who adopt a puppy under the age of one year. The contribution will be recognized for three years ».
