Saturday, October 15, in the morning, leaving his home, the mayor, Rémy Bouet, discovers on his doorstep, two trembling and hungry puppies, whose depositary has, of course, left neither name nor address. !
First of all surprised, he undertakes to install them in his living room to feed them. “My wife took them immediately to the vet to have them checked. They were full of fleas and ticks. They are black and white Border Collies, two months old according to the vet. They had to be prescribed a dewormer and a pest control”.
But what to do with them, the mayor not wishing to keep them? The SPA of Nîmes, contacted elsewhere, imposes to go through its services by offering them to become a foster family to find an adopter. A complex situation, especially since there is no possibility of obtaining an identification certificate for these animals. While waiting to be able to solve this problem, which would have gone well, the mayor does not hide his incomprehension “I don’t have to find anything outside the door of my home, even less living beings that we abandon. If you want to part with your animal, there are services for that and SPAs du Gard work very well. We do not abandon them in front of the mayor’s house, or anywhere else”.
