ADANA’s blue ribbon event, our annual dog show, is scheduled to take place on Sunday May 4th 2014 in the Palacio de Congresos in Estepona. Since its inception more than 20 years ago, the show has grown from strength to strength, attracting more and more participants and spectators. It is a great fun day out for all the family, and, even more importantly, an important fundraiser for ADANA with the potential to bring in more than 5,000 Euros for the care of our abandoned dogs.
This year’s show will include classes to test obedience and agility as well as our usual light hearted beauty pageant. The highly popular classes to find Estepona’s hottest dogs and coolest canine chicas return along with specialist classes for small and large pedigrees and Spanish breeds. As ever, the judges will be looking especially at ex ADANA dogs as well as our older, beloved companions, all of whom could be worthy winners of the coveted Pippa Trophy.

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.
