Mexico City � Animal rights activists staged a protest against the sale
of pets in Mexico City, urging residents to adopt dogs and other animals
instead of buying them.
Twelve activists took part in the
demonstration organized by the AnimaNaturalis group Tuesday at the iconic
Juarez monument on one of the capital�s main streets.
Two of the
activists, one painted to look like a dog and the other like a cat, stood in
gift boxes holding signs that urged people not to view animals as toys and
to adopt pets instead of purchasing them.
