Last Monday, the JIR revealed the existence of a “brown” shelter in Saint-Benoît in which more than seventy dogs lived in appalling health and safety conditions. A place infested with cockroaches and rats where the structure threatened to collapse at any moment.
The JIR article made it possible to alert the authorities who, a few days later, carried out a check in the refuge and other structures. A total of 110 and 100 cats were removed from these unsanitary places where they had not been treated and brought to safety in the island’s pounds. A priorii, none of the two hundred animals should be euthanized however, they cannot remain in the pounds indefinitely.
