We hope you enjoyed the myriad of fund raising choices we had for June and we would like to thank you for supporting these events. They really are our lifeline. With the warmer weather in July we have a slightly reduced events’ calendar, but there are still plenty of ways you can support us:
Join our Teaming Group, support our Online and Pop-Up Markets which are continuing, or try your luck in the 100 Club which has a couple of numbers remaining.
From time to time we have unexpected expenses and in fact these occasions are increasing by the day, so any cash donation in response to an appeal however small is always welcome.
We are currently short of Foster Homes, so if you are interested in helping us in this way please get in contact.
It might seem that our focus is generally on dogs, but there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes with cats and kittens which we would like to highlight. Since January we have paid to treat two cats that were shot and suffered injuries which needed veterinary care. In addition to this we have spayed or castrated 39 cats. We are really grateful for the help of caring people in this regard as we couldn’t physically trap/neuter and return these cats on our own. We were also pleased to provide the funds initially to a local community to control the cat population in their area. We are then reimbursed by the residents’ association who have been forward-thinking enough to vote in favour of providing funds for this scheme for two years in a row. How good would it be if other local communities followed suit as it could solve so many problems. It does mean however that people have to be more pro-active in their approach. Please contact us for more information regarding this.
Recently we were asked for advice concerning a nest of baby starlings that were left by the bins on a local urbanisation. Obviously someone thought it was ok to cut the nest down and discard it with no thought for the fledglings inside. Luckily they were found by a caring resident who took them to the Association de Libre La Tercia who will now care for them. Thank goodness for those people who will not walk by and ignore suffering.
Our adoption album contains the fabulous dogs and puppies we have in our care. Please take time to look at it, especially at those dogs who have been waiting so long, (some over a year), for new homes.
As usual we would like to thank all our friends and supporters who continue to help us and provide us with the means to carry on. There are many ways you can contribute to the work of FMA so please contact us if you would like more information.
