OAS Sanctuary is on the back service road near Camposol A. We are a local, legal animal charity rescuing horses, donkeys, dogs, cats, rabbits, tortoises and pigs with more animals arriving all the time. Our mission is to never turn away an animal in need.
Now that the weather has finally cooled down, we are able to start thinking about new projects that we need to complete this Autumn. The first major one is a concrete base for our storage facility. A local tradesman John Ankells Mansell, has very kindly agreed to do this for us on 10th October. This will make such a difference to us, as since the caravan was stolen there has simply been nowhere to store anything!
Whilst we know that people have the best intentions, please do not try and feed the animals unless under the supervision of one of our volunteers. We have had incidents recently where someone has thrown food into the animal enclosures. The food our residents get is carefully managed. Some have special dietary requirements and there has to be a daily limit of things such as apples and carrots. Too much can be dangerous.
We are delighted with the responses we have had by putting out appeals for donated items and we are truly grateful for the generosity of our community. As we have no storage facility yet, the items need to be in good condition and weather proof. Some kind person gave us a nearly full bag of cement. However it got wet and it is now a big solid lump that we cannot dispose of. If you have building materials, please can you contact Yolanda first to arrange collection.
Our volunteers have been hard at work looking at future fund raising events which we hope will soon include an ‘Open Day’. We have plans for more local Quizzes, a Themed Music Night (once restrictions have eased), and Raffles with some great prizes.
Well-known Camposol resident, Colin Thackwell, has offered to help us!
Colin will be running a ‘Marathon’ on Sunday 3rd October, donating the proceeds to us! Colin will run will from his villa on Camposol B, up past El Saladillo, over the bridge and down past The Sanctuary. He will then run back over the footbridge, past the Caixa Bank, down the dual carriageway then a left down Calle Tamariz back to his villa. Colin will complete this route 5 times, totalling 42.2 kilometres. Please flag him down and give him a donation if he passes you.
Our hard working, dedicated team of volunteers has a multitude of skills enabling us to continue our work, but we still need more. Can you spare a few hours a week to help out with some physical work at The Sanctuary, or help with events or raffles? We would be delighted to hear from you. We have 119 teamers which is fantastic. Let us try to get to our first goal of 150 before Christmas.
