People and dogs race in Spain - level 2
In Madrid, Spain, 700 dogs and their owners attended a race to demonstrate for more dog owner rights and to get help for abandoned dogs.
The dog owners would like Madrid to be a nicer place to have dogs by allowing the pets to go on the subway. One man said that dogs are already allowed on the subway in Barcelona and that they should be also allowed in Madrid.
People wanted to get help for abandoned dogs, dogs with disabilities and rescue dogs. To support the race, one woman brought her dog that recently had an operation.
Difficult words: attend (to go to an event), abandoned (left behind), disability (when someone has a problem with his or her body or mind and needs help).
