Just a few minutes from Camposol A is OAS (Otto Animal Sanctuary). Juan and Yolanda have rescued a number of horses, donkeys, pigs, dogs, cats, chickens and rabbits, all from dreadful situations.

Our bay gelding Orion, is now the proud owner of an anti- fly rug as he suffers terribly and is allergic to flies. Thank you to all who contributed.


Thankfully all of our Sanctuary residents are ok, but in the middle of July we spent a horrible afternoon, full of total despair and worry. A fire broke out very close to the Sanctuary that needed a lot of resources and time to be brought under control. We spent a dreadfully anxious afternoon to see if the fire would continue to spread, as this heat wave has not helped an area already as dry as a tinderbox! We thank everyone who helped and supported us at this dreadful time. Whilst funds still do not allow for it, we simply must now find some transport. We need a vehicle to transport both horses and donkeys as soon as possible. We had always known this would be needed for runs to emergency vets etc, but we didn’t think we would need to have transport to escape from fires! This has certainly made us painfully aware of the need to fundraise like crazy for a vehicle.

Pilates On The Beach

A few months ago we asked Annie Morton (Pilates 4 Charity) if she would consider our charity at some point in the future. Annie has been running some wonderful Pilates classes in favour of the animals of the Sanctuary by holding classes on the beach at Bolnuevo on Friday mornings. These classes have now been suspended until September, but we were absolutely overwhelmed when Annie calmy handed over €800 to us at the beginning of July. Annie, we cannot thank you enough!


A quick and painless way of helping is to join our teaming programme. For just €1 per month, teaming allows us to forecast our incoming revenue and highlight where we need to raise more, much, much more. Please consider teaming and encourage your friends and family to do the same. €1 per month is nothing to most, but means everything to the animals.


We now have 156 teamers paying €1 per month which is truly fantastic. Some would like to increase their monthly donation, but it’s not easy to do. We’re currently working on a solution for this and will report back our findings in future articles.

PLEASE, CAN YOU GIVE US A PAW? THANKS Drop by drop oceans are created.
