February is now out of the way and as we welcome the fabulous spring weather we know that summer and hopefully an improvement in all of our lives is on its way. Being able to return to our monthly markets, musical events and other fund raising activities is on the horizon, but unfortunately is still a long way off. We’ve resurrected the Online Market after a month off due to restrictions. Although we cannot deliver at the moment, all items can be reserved for collection. Please join by putting Friends Of Mazarrón Animals Market in the Facebook search box.
A new initiative that we are hoping to roll out when allowed is a Pop Up Boutique. We will bring our Clothes Market to you and your friends in your house, garden, patio or solarium. You can browse through our new and nearly new items in the comfort of your own home, with a nice glass of vino or cup of tea. Keep following our page for more information.
As we continue to try to move forward in these strange old times up popped another idea;
The Petite Boutique
Based in Isla Plana, we are setting up this little boutique with all your fabulous donated items. Obviously we have restrictions at the moment, but keep it in mind when you can legally and safely come that way. If you have any pre-loved items we would be very grateful to have them.
This continues to be a massive success and with only a few numbers remaining you will have to be quick to snap up what’s left.
Our charity continues to expand with the ever-increasing numbers of abandoned animals. We knew that February would see the abandonment of many hunting dogs. 1st February was the Day of the Galgo, which FMA supported by dedicating all their posts that day to this often mistreated breed. To us and many other organisations, their plight is felt for the whole year, but in February, more than ever, we needed to show our support for this most elegant and gentle dog. 1st February means the hunting season in Spain comes to an end. Unfortunately for many Galgos this marks the end of their lives; often in the most cruel and heartless ways. We stand united with everyone who calls for an end to the cruelty that these wonderful dogs endure. Fortunately there is a slight beam of light in the darkness as gradually more hunters are willing to work with us; small steps, but steps nevertheless.
A huge thank you to everyone who supports us! We literally could not survive without you. We have had loads of success stories last month, tinged with a few tears too, but we continue to help and home many animals. Keep following our Facebook page to see all our wonderful FMA family. Please contact us if you would like to get involved. Ways of donating, however small, can be found below.
