ADANA in China!
Another runner for ADANA
ADANA has in recent years enjoyed favourable publicity in the Estepona area but we are now increasingly known beyond the immediate locality, thanks to our overseas adoption programmes and to fundraising outside Spain with our Amsterdam Marathon runner Angelika Weyrich and Rome runner Sonia Birch.
Now we are extending our horizons even further. Charlotte, daughter of Helen Ellis, our Kennel Administrator, is running a Marathon on the Great Wall of China in order to raise money for ADANA!!
The Marathon will take place on Saturday May 18th and anyone wishing to sponsor Charlotte can go to her fundraising page on the Charity Giving website: www.charitygiving.co.uk/charlotteellis
Pupils raise money for ADANA dogs
Last month's Newsletter featured a piece on a visit paid by ADANA Vice-President Mary Page to Calpe School, San Pedro, where she spoke to the pupils about the work of ADANA and the need to give proper care to our pets. She was accompanied by ADANA Fundraisers Carole and Sheila, with canine companions Prudence and Poppy who returned to the school to collect a cheque for just under 280 euros, all raised by the pupils during a fundraising day.
ADANA'S AGM - 17 April
Almost half of ADANA's members attended the AGM, held as usual at the Estepona Football Stadium. All the reports were received as presented and questions were raised and satisfactorily answered.
The meeting reaffirmed its decision to abandon the Sanctuary Project and to dispose of the land as soon as possible at the best price.
ADANA goes back to school
It has always been our aim not only to care for animals in need but also to spread awareness of the need for proper care of pets and other animals so an invitation to talk to pupils at Calpe School San Pedro was gratefully accepted.
Volunteers needed for Foster Programme
We need volunteers for our Foster programme, to help dogs that are either too ill to be put into the kennels, dogs that need medicine more than once a day or dogs that have a home to go to but are awaiting transport dates.
This would be for an agreed period of time and would not be permanent, merely until the dog is well or ready to travel to his/her new home. hence the word Foster.
By building a team of foster carers we will be able to keep adopted dogs safe and healthy before travelling and give sick dogs a chance of a quick and stress free recovery.
We are unfotunately too crowded now to do all this ourselves on site at the kennels.
If you can help, contact Helen on 952-113-467.
Dog fellow-travellers urgently sought!!
ADANA is urgently seeking help with flying adopted dogs to new homes in various European countries, including Belgium, France and Switzerland.
'These dogs have been adopted by families in these countries and all their travel arrangements will be made by ADANA' says ADANA Administrator and Adoptions Officer Helen Ellis.
'What we urgently need is for someone who is travelling to any of these countries to agree to 'accompanying' the dog during the flight. The dogs will be taken to the airport with all documentation prepared and will be put in a travelling crate. They will be met by their adopters at the destination airport'.
Anyone willing to help these dogs fly to their new homes should contact Helen on 952113467, from 10.00 until 14.00, or by e-mail at
