Roselyn Sanchez twitter :the cocktail party for the amazing paw paw race was a success! Great night with family and friends!
The event was “really significant” because of its potential to help the Puerto Rican government improve the situation of stray dogs on the Caribbean island. She called on Gov. Alejandro Garcia Padilla’s administration to include the effort to rescue these animals among its other top priorities such as combating crime and unemployment and improving public health. Sanchez said the number of stray dogs in Puerto Rico has tripled over the past decade to 300,000 and called on the island’s authorities to open more shelters to house these canines. Referring to the race, she said the different team members must be “very athletic” because they will have to navigate an obstacle course spanning six different municipalities. The funds raised for PetSOS also will be used to organize a large-scale spay and neuter drive on the island aimed at sterilizing hundreds of dogs and cats belonging to needy families. EFE
