A large crowd of ADANA volunteers, members, supporters and the public took over the streets of Estepona on Sunday, 9 April, for their fourth annual Great ADANA Dog Outing. Eleven dogs from the ADANA kennels were walked from the Palacio de Congresos, Estepona, along the Paseo Maritimo  as well as many families with their canine companions, many of whom had previously been adopted from ADANA.

Quarterly meeting - 17 Jan 2017

ADANA held the second of its regular quarterly meetings at the Padre Manuel Centre Estepona in mid-January on the topic of fundraising.

About fifteen people attended on a cold night and we were pleased to welcome supporter and happy Mum of Freddie, a former ADANA dog, Karen Williamson, who presented a very good idea for a dog-sitting service. Other ideas came from ADANA Volunteer Shellie Outram with her plan to take ADANA dogs to a coffee morning in Manilva with the aim of encouraging interest and possible adoptions.


ADANA Christmas Fair - 20 Nov 2016

Palacio de Congresos, Estepona, 10.30am to 4pm.
The Christmas Fair was a huge success. The dogs and humans had a wonderful time and we raised nearly €8,500.

Thanks to Trish Mansfield and all who helped make the day so rewarding and enjoyable.


EGM and open meeting - 26 Sept 2016

Room packed for EGM and open meeting

Extra chairs had to be brought into the meeting room at the Padre Manuel Centre Estepona for the thirty plus members who attended. The meeting unanimously voted to accept the amended statutes and to approve the sale of the Sanctuary land on the Estepona - Casares border as well as giving Treasurer Reg Winkworth authority to renogiate the terms of the mortgage.

President Mary Page, who chaired the meeting, said that disposing of the land at the best obtainable price would put a final end to the ill-conceived Sanctuary project.


Last Night of the Proms - 10 Sept
