We would like to wish all of our friends and supporters a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. However, while we are enjoying the festive season, the abandonment of animals and the calls for help in rehoming animals continues at a pace. The economic crisis caused by COVID has forced people to find new solutions for their animals while others have more spurious reasons; we have experienced most of them! 

At this time of year we remember that famous phrase ‘A dog is for life not just for Christmas.’ It never ceases to amaze us how little thought goes into acquiring an animal and then how little thought goes into giving them up. We would love to see our ‘workload’ decrease in 2022, but we know realistically this will probably not happen. We wish all our neglected and abandoned animals find the loving homes they so deserve and we will continually strive to do this.

How can you help us achieve this?

Volunteer, drive, foster and support our events. We have three fund raisers this month.

Saturday 4th DecemberFMA Christmas Party at El Hotel Restaurante Costa, Mazarrón Town. Tickets at 35€ include a three course meal and live music from Jimmy McMail featuring his tribute to the fabulous Rat Pack. 

Thursday 16th DecemberFMA Fun Christmas Quiz at Club Playa Grande. Teams of maximum 8 people (3€ donation pp) booked in advance. 

Friday 17th DecemberDraw for Radley Bag and Purses (worth over 200€)

Tickets 5€ for the chance of winning this treasured British brand. 

Finally I would like to finish with a Christmas wish from Scamp the dog to whom I have to credit this poem. Whilst the huge majority of us treat our animals like family and spoil them rotten, we must always remember the ones that aren’t so lucky. 

A Christmas Eve prayer for all the unloved Dogs (all animals) in the World

On this night of all nights
please can you remember

The Dogs who never have the love
that I do in December.

On this night of all nights
keep all dogs nice and warm,
But please most importantly,
keep them safe from harm.

On this night of all nights,
let them find some meat,

For they are cold and starving
as they lie upon the street.

On this night of all nights,
a gift they do not need,
Could they just have a family,
to love and give them feed?

On this night of all nights,
as they sit there cold and wet,
Just tell them it is possible,
this is as bad as life will get.

On this night of all nights,
 I’m as lucky as can be,
I only wish those other Dogs,
could spend this night with me.

With best wishes for the Festive Season from everyone at FMA.
