Otto Animal Sanctuary (OAS) is a legally registered charity based near Camposol A showing compassion to all animals. Current residents include horses, donkeys, dogs, cats, pigs, chickens, rabbits and tortoises.
We have a number of dogs needing foster homes. Please visit our Facebook page for updates on dogs looking for foster homes.
We are delighted to report that more sponsors have come forward since our last update.
Pandora is a beautiful young filly, now being partially sponsored by Diane and Ian.
Colt, our lovely Appaloosa horse is being partially sponsored by Mandy.
(‘Partial’ sponsors pay €20 per month, but the true cost to keep the animal is at least 10 times higher than that so we do have multiple sponsors for the larger animals.)
Sponsors get to spend quality time on a one-to-one basis with their chosen animal.
Register for teaming. Once registered you can join the group to become a valuable team member. Your monthly 1€ donation collectively will help towards vet fees and everyday care.
On Monday 6th July, outside The Diner, Camposol B, John Fitzmaurice was publicly ‘waxed’ to raise money. He saw our post about our caravan being stolen. It was our only source of shelter and storage. John and his family raised €480 as donations kept arriving over the following days. John and Deana’s daughter Devon, and her best friend Holly, went round to all the other bars on the night asking for donations in exchange for ‘Daddy Getting Waxed’. Well done girls!
Debbie Balser recently got married and sent us a very generous donation of €100. Congratulations to Mark and Debbie and a big thank you!
Watch out for details on future events which sadly are still all subject to change regarding restrictions.
We are continuing to receive offers of help at OAS, but we could still use more please. A group of ladies who love horses have organised a rota system during the evenings. It is hard work, but good fun. Please let us know if you can spare a few hours per week.
A lady kindly donated all the garden tools from her shed, but we still need more wheelbarrows, pitch forks and shovels please.
The vets on Camposol A has a list of items we desperately need. There is also a donation bin outside Luz Del Sol estate agents where you can leave items such as flea and tick treatments or wormers. Thank you to the lady who left a bag of carrots in the bin.
Piensos Fuentes, Mazarrón Town (next to Navarro Stationery) will accept donations of animal food. They have a list of horse feed, corn for the chickens and pig food.
We are keen to build our own brick-built kennels and cattery on the existing land at OAS, but we have to wait to obtain licences.
Visitors are very welcome, but due to COVID restrictions it must currently be by appointment only. Please contact us on the number above. Visiting the sanctuary in person is the best way to understand how we work. Weekend visits are encouraged and Tyler is a very capable bi-lingual young man with an in-depth knowledge of all the residents. We look forward to seeing you
