The management of Cuenca’s provincial dog pound is currently up for tender. One of the tenderers is the rodent control company “Desratizaciones Parques, S.L.". Also tendering is the animal protection society OLESCAN, which has been correctly managing the pound since March 2015, after having been awarded the contract for a provisional period of three months. During this period the animals have been cared for perfectly. An addition OLESCAN has followed the correct policy on not putting animals to sleep unless justified on medical grounds, has promoted responsable adoption using  an adoption contract, as well as the castration of all adopted animals.

OLESCAN has wide experience and currently manages two other dog pounds in Cataluña,  where the animals’ welfare, the policy of actively encouraging adoption and the protocol of not putting animals to sleep can be seen working successfully

“Desratizaciones Parque” has a long history with the dog pounds in Madrid, having received numerous complaints from Animal Proctection Societies and a large number of prosecution proceedings.  The most recent, in February 2015, was brought by the Environment Councillor of Alcalá de Henares, whose pound they had been managing since 2014.

It is our duty to demand that all Spanish dog pounds be run by non-profit making organisations who will care for the welfare of the animals under their protection. These animals are innocent victims, they have been abandoned and mistreated, not only by their previous owners but also by the lack of legislation which should be in place to protect them.

A for-profit organisation will only ever have economic interests at heart, which is obviously to the detriment of the animals and their inevitable death after 21 days.

We want the Provincial Dog Pound in Cuenca to be run by OLESCAN.  We want the animals to receive the decent treatment they deserve, that they can recover both physically and psychologically thereby allowing them to start new lives.  We do not want the dog pound to be a living hell which only leads to death.
