Friends of Mazarrón Animals, like many other charities in this area, have been hit greatly by the impact of the Corona Virus and the effect it has had on our fund raising abilities, upon which we are totally reliant. Cancellation of events such as concerts, our monthly markets and fayres has meant digging in to our already depleted financial reserves.

Trying to find positives from this crazy situation is hard, but believe it or not, there has been quite a lot to celebrate over the last month since lockdown. We already knew we had fantastic supporters and they did not need much persuading to answer our ‘call to arms’, contributing in so many ways; liking and sharing our posts, donating much needed funds, offering foster homes, donating monies from already purchased concert tickets and even adopting.

Amongst those dogs finding permanent homes were all our M & M puppies and Flossie, with some others still awaiting confirmation. Our appeal for fosters resulted in many of our dogs and puppies moving in with temporary families, where they can experience a home situation and learn the life skills needed for their development and future life. We still have many dogs needing foster homes, so if you are able to help, please contact us. We are really grateful to everyone who has stepped up at this difficult time and opened up their homes for our FMA family.

We are hoping, like everyone else, that a return to ‘normal’ will not be too long in the future and that we can all meet up again at our monthly market to catch up with friends and enjoy the sunshine which is inevitably going to happen. Until that time, everyone at FMA will be giving an extra loud clap on Thursdays, not just for our wonderful key workers, but for our wonderful friends and supporters.

Please keep looking at and sharing our Facebook page. We will endeavour to keep everyone updated on forthcoming events and their situation as well as updating on the animals in our care both past and present. Please remember the more likes we get on our Facebook page the more people we can reach.

If you think you can offer your help in any way please contact us. In most cases we are still open for adoptions and fostering within the immediate area.

Thank you as ever for all your support.
