Well hello June! 

Yes, we all love the summer and I’m sure the donkeys do too! Their coats are beginning to shed. Donkeys shed later than ponies and horses, which is great for us as we’re continually brushing. It’s great for the muscles I might add! Some shed their coats without any problems, while some with longer coats look like a flea bitten scarecrow. At the moment we only have a few flies about, so we are holding off getting the masks out as they are on for a good few months once it gets warmer. 

I’m sure quite a few of you have seen a poster for two missing Teckles, (Dachshunds) on 20th April. Kevin was loading the van and they both scooted past him through the gate and ran up the camino. I came straight home from the shop to help look, but not one sighting. We have looked everywhere, had several drones up searching the ramblas, put lots and lots of posters out … nothing. 2 weeks later on 3rd May, I received a call from the police in Furnte Álamo. They have found one in the town – Teckle 1. He is the older one and nearly blind due to his leishmania. It’s truly a miracle that my boy is home, but he was on his own. Teckle 2 is still out there. We will never give up looking. Someone has my boy for sure. We will keep searching, so please keep looking. He is 8 years old, chipped and castrated and also has leishmania. I know he’s still out there, so please everyone keep looking.  

We have another fundraising coach trip going to Benidorm on Sunday 18th June which is also Market Day. We are picking up on Camposol B and La Torre, so if you fancy a day out give me a call and reserve your tickets on 690 906 565  

We still have Mollies 4 puppies, now 5 months old. They are only little ones, but sadly we have had no takers. We will keep our fingers crossed. If you are looking for a forever little friend, maybe look at our 4 munchkins. 

We have a great sponsorship scheme going for the donkeys and ponies which

makes a super gift. The scheme is vital to our ongoing work and really does help with the constant rise of the feed bills. Alternatively you could make a donation to help care for the 11O donkeys.

We are very visible with yellow panels on the side of our vans. Larger items can be collected by prior arrangement, or items can be dropped off at our shops in Roldan or Mazarrón between 10.30am and 1.30pm.
