Anyone who has lived in Spain for any length of time will know that things often take a little - or a lot- longer than expected and the work being done at the kennels by the Ayuntamiento is proving to be no exception. The works, which involve fencing, flattening out the steep slopes on the northern side and eventually the construction of a quarantine block, have necessitated the removal of the runs which means less space and freedom for the dogs that live on that side of the kennels.
We do need volunteer dogwalkers to give our 'north side' dogs the exercise they need so if you have time to spare and would like the opportunity to help please visit our kennels which are open from 11.00 to 13.30 seven days a week including public holidays.
In spite of the upheaval we are open for business as usual! Please spread the word that we are open for adoptions and we are again taking in abandoned dogs
mainly from the Estepona area.
The Press Room in the Padre Manuel Centre Estepona was full to capacity on the evening of 18 February to hear a talk by local resident Isobel Howat on the Spanish Civil War. Mrs. Howat, who was born in Scotland and who spends part of the year in her El Paraiso apartment and the other in her native Glasgow, held the audience spell-bound with her journey through Spanish history focusing on the dreadful years of civil war 1936 to 1939.
