In the wake of the Valparaiso fire, Mauricio Gonzalez Adonis is looking out for the animals.
“Es una guardaria,” he said. A shelter.
With the help of family and friends, he built the structure in less than 24 hours to take in any dog, cat, “or whatever,” that are brought.
“When did you decide to start this…organization?”
“4 p.m. ayer,” he said. Yesterday afternoon and today it is fully functioning with a second, larger house next door.
Adonis himself lives approximately 100 km away, safe from the fire, but came to help when he heard about the fire. His nephew and family lost everything in the fire.
