Perro Callejero, a music video

Riverfront Cats is proud to share our first music video (and in Spanish!) to create awareness about homeless pets. While the video is about dogs (perros), naturally the message is universal to all pets including cats. 

The brainchild behind the video is Silvia Rosales Del Monico who is also featured in the video. She is a singer and actress in the Spanish speaking media in the U.S.. Our founder Christine Michaels, received a call from Silvia who lives nearby.  Silvia and her husband Dan had found stray kittens in their neighborhood in Little Havana and asked for guidance on how to help the kittens. Together Christine, Dan and Silvia teamed up to ensure the kittens were captured, taken to the vet for checkup and vaccinations and placed in loving permanent homes.  Christine also taught Silvia and Dan how to use a cat trap to humanely trap other stray and feral cats in their neighborhood to get them spayed and neutered.  Silvia and Dan's genuine concern and love for animals lead to ongoing conversations on how to raise awareness and reach the masses to reverse the rate of homeless pets.  They are the proud owners of four rescue cats.

We thank Silvia for investing her time and talent in coordinating this video to reach the Hispanic audience and sharing the powerful message that adopting stray dogs bestows as much love and energy as any other pet and that pet ownership is a lifetime commitment.  Pets (dogs and cats) provide unconditional love and companionship and we must do the same.  Protect and love your pet as they would do the same for you.

Please enjoy the video. The lyrics are in Spanish with English subtitles.
Together, we can make a difference.

  1. That's a wonderful video! Congratualtions to the founders and I am sure it is going to do wonders for the animals and the people who need adopting. Bravo!

  2. Ese fue un excelente video y una maravillosa manera de llevar el mensaje!

  3. Why Brian! We didn't know you speak fluent Spanish!! Very impressive. We only wonder what other talents you are hiding from us. Your fans are curious!

  4. Awesome! Thanks for joining the blog hop!

  5. Amazing & fantastic! I'm thrilled to have found your blog. I love the work you are doing for cats and the support and love you're giving them. My husband & I do similar rescuing and caring of cats but on a much smaller scale...I'm still shocked by the number of homeless, abandoned and feral cats on the streets.

    I'll be setting up my cats blog again soon..Feline Family on wordpress.
    We hope Leroy is doing well and will contribute as as possible
