The days will finally get longer this month and we can look forward to the long Summer that we are all lucky to experience here in Spain. Meanwhile animal rescue carries on at a pace, with February seeing a massive increase in unexpected vet bills, unexpected arrivals like Maple’s puppies, and unexpected numbers, especially with regard to the Galgos that we were called upon to help. 

As normal we also have expenses which are not unforeseen and part of this is the funding we have targeted for our ‘invisible’ dogs. These are dogs that no matter how often they are posted on our page receive little or no attention. As you would suspect they are not little, fluffy or cute butFMA will not discriminate against any dog. Fortunata, Gunilla, Nieve Granja, and Fenix have been waiting many months for new homes. Some of them came with a companion who have already been adopted while Gunilla has seen her puppies go to new families while she still waits for hers. What more can we do? Some may not be pretty on the surface, though we would disagree, but they all have beautiful souls deserving of a loving home. Please take time to look at their stories in our adoption album and if you are not in a position to offer them a new home then please help by sharing. We are confident there is a home out there for all our dogs but sometimes it just takes a little bit longer to find the right one.

Finally we have a few dates for your diaries.

On Saturday March 5th we have a fun dog walk from church to church (Isla Plana to La Azohia). There will also be a pop up market and live music by Still in the Groove outside the Isla Plana Social Club.

Saturday March 19th we have another pop up market in the Food Company Car Park and finally on March 30th we have an afternoon fun quiz at Club Playa Grande in Pto de Mazarón.

Further details about all these events and others can be found on our Facebook page.
