The Cavalli team was invited to a primary school in Alcantarilla, Jacinto Benavente, where pupils from Cavalli Pony Club, Dario and Iris, gave a talk about stopping cruelty to animals. Stop Animal Cruelty, is an ongoing initiative made up in a game by Cavalli Pony Club kids which has been developed during weekly meetings and is being presented to their schools. At Jacinto Benavente, 100 third year children listened to and interacted with Cavalli experts on the subject of how important it is to respect animals and the environment and how to take good care of their pets. The special needs group especially enjoyed taking part meeting with therapy dog, Luna.
At Easter Camp, the children had a very special job during the visit of AFEMTO, an association for mentally ill people from Alhama. They were asked to show the AFEMTO people around, tell them the stories of our rescued animals and help them groom and lead the horses. AFEMTO Psychologist loved the idea of the two generations working together. The AFEMTO people were thrilled and the children did a great job.
Secondary school Miguel Hernandez, Alhama, sent a group of their students to find out about voluntary work with rescued animals and how volunteers can help during sessions of animal assisted therapy. This forms part of a curricular activity called ‘Projects’. They came to Cavalli Foundation last year and decided to pay us another visit this year.
The geese are still laying, but no offspring fortunately as our flock is too big already. We are hoping to have most of the geese and cockerels rehomed at the beginning of May. Fingers crossed!
George is making a good recovery after his operation. He is starting to put his weight on the injured leg and walk properly. His convalescence has been quite a complicated process as there’s no way to keep George still!
On her way home after a long, hard day, Veronica found a dog lying by the side of the dreaded RM-603; no sign of injury but in obvious distress. She brought the dog back and after a visit to the vet, contact with other dog protection groups and publication on FB, the very next day the owner turned up at Cavalli and the two of them were happily reunited.
