SACRAMENTO VELLISCA

Main aim of the charity

They started in 2011 with the purpose to rescue, provide shelter and deliver for responsible adoption abandoned or endangered animals found in our location. They receive from the Police a lot of dogs in severe conditions from La Cañada, a big area in Madrid where deep poverty, drugs and social exclusion make of it one of the most dangerous areas. Rivanimal offer the animals, mostly dogs and cats medical care and ensure that the family who adopts them are the proper ones by studying the families, visiting them and conducting regular checkings.

How the employee got involved and why

I´m supporting them 8 years ago since i adopted my dog Cata who had suffered cruel abandon right after delivering her puppies. She was abandoned along with her puppies. I´m actually her 4th family since she suffered continuous abandons from her previous 3 owners. I´m totally committed to this cause. I love animals, many times i help at animals medical center on administrative tasks. My colleague Carolina del Blanco who was my former department colleague before i took the responsibility of the Head Office Reception, helps also by taking dogs out for walk during weekends.
