Dogs and cats of families with up to two minimum wages of income can have ambulatory care done by the vets of the City Hall in the Directorate of Animal Welfare (Dibea) of Florianópolis. The resumption of the service, which had not been working for more than a year, was one of the priorities of Mayor Gean Loureiro, and was achieved through the relocation of veterinarians who had already been working in the network, but worked in other areas.
The office works as a health center for the pets. The service is from 1pm to 5pm and occurs without scheduling. With this service offered, Dibea will have its service complete again, including rescue and treatment of animals at risk.
All animals arriving at Dibea, victims of maltreatment and risk situations are de-wormed and treated, microchipped and castrated. If they are in good condition, they are placed for adoption.
Currently there are just over 100 dogs and cats housed at Dibea, waiting for a foster family. On average, about four animals are adopted per week.
