Lima sponsors cat adoption campaign


Cats left in the Parque Universitario (University Park) will be given the chance to find a new home. Until December 30, those interested can adopt one of these abandoned animals thanks to a campaign promoted by the Social Development Department of the Municipality of Lima, in coordination with the Misicha Peru Association.

A total of 40 cats have been rescued by the association and placed in a temporary shelter where they have been trained to become domestic pets, explained the Municipality’s veterinary doctor, Alexander Pescoran. This is the first group of cats out of a total of 100 that will be put up for adoption.

All the felines have been vaccinated, dewormed, sterilized and given anti-flea bath by the Lima commune.

Those who adopt one of these cats will also receive a complete kit with food and litter (and the appropriate clean-up tools) for the kittens, thanks to the collaboration of brands like Basa, Katizkan, Mitzy and Yoga Eres Tú.

Those interested should to the University Park from Monday to Friday from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm, and on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

Those interested will also receive a complete kit with food, litter and clean-up tools for the kittens.
