In April we continued to reserve more Perrera dogs and we were able to transport another 9 dogs to their new owners in Germany. We Rescued 5 more dogs from the Perrera for adoption locally, two for adoption in Holland and one in Belgium. We also had a four day visit to Mazarrón by two of our loyal colleagues from ‘Hundepfoten’ in Germany who came to meet our committee members and the volunteers at the Perrera and to see their rescued dogs they have reserved in local kennels waiting to be re-homed in Germany.

This month we are preparing some of these rescued dogs for transport to their new homes in Germany. This is a continuous operation only made possible by the committed efforts of loyal association members and the volunteers of ‘Helping the Perrera Dogs Group’ who give their time to help by walking, socialising and caring for all the dogs that unfortunately find themselves in the local Perrera. We also thank our boarding kennels and fosterers of our rescued dogs who help to prepare them for a home environment prior to them being transported to a better life with their new owners.

The dogs that we send to their new owners in Germany and UK are all transported under the EU TRACES System as is legally required for them to travel to their new owners or to other rescue organizations in other European Countries.

The Mazarrón Perrera is situated opposite Mazarrón Country Club just off the motorway from Camposol to Mazarrón. If you feel you would like to join the team and help walk and socialise the dogs to prepare them for their new homes, please call Tony on 618 034 921, or come along and have a chat to the ladies at the Table Top Stall on Thursdays on Camposol A Car Park. This provides much-needed funds to help rescue abandoned dogs from the Perrera, so please come along to support their efforts and maybe find yourself a bargain. Any donations and unwanted saleable items can also be brought to the stall.

Our Charity Shop in Puerto de Mazarrón is always in need of donations of furniture, toys, bric-a-brac, clothing or any items considered saleable to raise funds for rescuing and rehoming abandoned dogs. We always need volunteers in our Charity Shop, so if you would like to join our team, please call Cathy on 639 604 628.

It takes a lot of effort and funds to realize this worthwhile cause and we thank all our Volunteers and Supporters who give us their time and effort.
