Anti-Animal Abuse Program Launched in Mexico City, San Miguel Allende and Aguascalientes

City officials received training and resources from Humane Society International to fight animal cruelty

Humane Society International/Mexico

City officials in Mexico City, San Miguel Allende and Aguascalientes received training, technical assistance and donated animal handling equipment as part of an anti-animal abuse program. Each city signed an agreement with Humane Society International, which is providing the services this month.

The programs are part of an HSI initiative to help develop activities intended to promote and foster animal protection and welfare. HSI will help officials at each city develop campaigns to raise public awareness of companion animal protection and welfare issues, as well as the training of city personnel responsible for following up on reports of animal abuse.

Anton Aguilar, director of HSI/Mexico, said: “We congratulate officials in Mexico City, San Miguel Allende and Aguascalientes for engaging with civil society to confront animal cruelty. These agreements will lay the ground to create a culture of respect and care towards companion animals and improve animal welfare.”

Help us end the cruelty of dog fights worldwide.

Following these agreements, HSI will work to extend its anti-cruelty platform to additional Mexican cities.
