Mascotas Club is a club for children, teenagers and their pets founded with the aim to promote their healthy grow and development thanks to the knowledge and establishment of emotional links with pets, whatever they be real animals or cuddly toy animals.
El término mascota proviene del francés mascotte, y éste del latín mascoto, que significa “talismán” , por lo que después se aplicó a persona o animal que traía buena fortuna.
The term 'pet' (mascota) comes from the French mascotte, and that from Latin mascoto, that means “talisman” , and for this reason it was then applied to humans and animals that brought good fortune.
We are fans of Michael Jackson and like him, we adore our pets. We believe in the strength of mutual emotional bond that develops between people and their pets, but specially in the ability of this bond to help children to develop and strength a healthy emotional life.
Children have the innate ability to consider the nature and animals as equals and enjoy engaging with them emotional ties that allow them to grow and develop in a healthy emotional environment.
The magic of childhood makes even possible that this bonds be established with stuffed toy animals that may even become their inseparable friends, night and day.
Michael decided to emphatize this bond and to show that not only the dog can be the best friend of man and a diversity of animals have a many virtues that enrich our lives.
This is the reason why we decided to create Mascotas Club. Here, every week, you'll meet good friends, read and share life stories and anecdotes with pets, wathever they be real animals or stuffed toy ones, pay homage to your most beloved pet, play games and activities. And together, we'll learn about Michael and his pets.
