During the years I couldn't afford to return to the island, I read what Adri had to say about the dogs and the horses she has rescued. Where animals were in need; there is Adri Galler.
When the dog catchers threw the dogs off the bridge, Adri was one of the first to be called because they know Adri cares.
When gangs were using and abusing horses, Adri was instrumental in catching criminals and saving horses.
All the while caring for her bricabrac collection of strays/satos. Adri could continue with the placement of her strays in the states; that would be a full plate for most, but no there's more.
The one woman mega force brought a standard of education in animal control to Puerto Rico. Because of her efforts no dog will be thrown off a bridge in Puerto Rico by any animal control officer.
Adri saw what was wrong, then worked to fix it. She worked long and hard; not for thank you, but for her beloved "Satos". Congratulations to Adri as the second course for Animal Control Certification begins in June, 2010.
There is no rest for the dynamic lady. The offspring of her Animal Control Course is the Federation of Animal Control Officers or FOICCA. By popular demand Adri has agreed to take a more active of the fledgling organization for the benefit of the animals and members.
Adri has earned the respect of animal activists around the island and elsewhere. I am so proud to call her my friend and mentor. Thank you, Adri, this is one more good thing you're doing.
