Shenzhen's temporary care centers assist pets in surviving difficult circumstances.
(ECNS) In Shenzhen, the capital of Guangdong Province, temporary pet care centers have been established to assist vulnerable pets during their masters' centralized quarantine.
One temporary pet care center, with an area of 8,500 square meters and a building size of 1,500 square meters, is located on Guangming Street in Guangming District. It has the capacity to house up to 300 animals.
Residents of a village in the Futian District of Shenzhen, a pandemic-affected area, had to be placed under centralized isolation in mid-March 2022, and were unable to take their large-size pets with them.
Shenzhen built two temporary care centers for approximately 200 pets in order to assist these vulnerable creatures. Technicians from an animal pandemic were sent here to ensure the safety and well-being of these animals. A total of 715 environmental samples were obtained, all of which came out negative.
Air conditioners and thermometers are installed in the care centers to guarantee that the temperature and humidity are comfortable for the pets. Volunteers will walk dogs once or twice a day in addition to feeding them twice a day. In addition, masters can receive movies shot by volunteers to help them cope with their pets' nervousness.
Shenzhen isn't the only Chinese city with animal care facilities. Changsha, the capital of Hunan province in central China, has also launched a public welfare programme for pets. During centralized isolation, the city assisted over 100 pets from 32 homes.
