A kindergarten building which was left unoccupied has now been converted into a shelter for street dogs. This is located close to an international airport, which is still under construction.
This Doggies shelter which is being run by the army of Mexico was set up after the workers and architects of the airport discovered that there were many street dogs wandering close to the construction site.
This shelter can accommodate about 50 dogs, which will receive shelter, food, and, medical attention. Carla Medellin, who is a 2nd Lieutenant and a veterinarian said that:
The shelter’s objective is to give the dogs a temporary home and to adapt them to live with humans and other dogs so they can be adopted by a family.Carla Medellin
Not all the street dogs coming into the shelter are meant to be adopted. Veterinarians and specialists will also search for dogs, which can detect drugs and COVID-19 patients at the airport.
One of the architects working at the airport, Pamela Diaz said that:
Dogs can help us as medical alert dogs. They can detect cancer, hypertension, early diabetes or COVID-19. Mainly at the airport, they will provide a way of carrying out fast tests.Pamela Diaz
