Danger of embargo

The stamp was extremely curious. One of the volunteers, to hang from your neck chain tying dogs, He criticized that it was 'too heavy' and claimed that they were lighter.

But for now the heaviest string that is tied to the Svpap neck is that control Social Security and laid-off workers. These were reported to the Svpap when it stopped paying them and fired them in September of 2011. Those workers are added to those performing their duties in the Veterinary Clinic of the Palleter Street, they spent three months without charge and demanded their payroll. The protective sources consulted by this newspaper, the idea was to pay them eight days per year worked, as the Convention stipulated, said. Employees reported the situation to the courts and claimed payment of 45 days per year worked. Justice gave them the reason and now the Svpap have to pay some 200.000 euros in compensation, as well as the four and a half months that passed between the dismissals and court ruling which stipulated the amount to pay.

The most immediate is the debt to Social Security. According to sources of the entity, came «from coup"five orders of urgency the past 10 October. With the bridge of the 9 October and the Día de la Hispanidad by means, the efforts of the Svpap with Social Security were delayed, and only got a deferment of the debt if they paid nearly the 70 %, 18.000 EUR, before Thursday 25 October, the next. Thus the things, from the Svpap yesterday showed optimistic with regard to the solidarity that expect to receive from supporters, conscious people, Wildlife and volunteers. "We believe that we can do it", ensured. On the horizon, alert, is a solution that no one wants to parra dogs and cats from the shelter of San Antonio de Benagèber: the implementation of animal, that you now live cramped in a crowded shelter.

Under rain and penetrating odor

So a group of them drove animals for a walk while another is keen in clean cages and remove, in part, the penetrating smell of excrement of enclosures.
