Charity Golf Day - 21 June

"The Real Club de Golf Guadalmina kindly gave me the use of their prestigious South course for a Charity golf Day for ADANA. All the green fees and the buggy fees were donated to ADANA and Ignacio Cuvillo the golf Director was amazing with his help and general support as well as donating prizes and green fees for the raffle. Lynn Fisher was the other main prop of the whole event and she spent hours of her time organising me and prizes and lists and more lists and all the entertainment.


Madeline Bell and David Lenker ADANA Benefit Concert - 18 July

Madeline Bell fund-raiser at The Gran Hotel, Benahavís.

The opening speech by the President of ADANA brought tears to the eyes of the many ADANA supporters as well as the Madeline Bell life-long fans that were present:

"Adana is celebrating it's 25th year this year and I am disappointed to say we are still very busy caring for animals that have been abandoned. Our job is challenging on many levels. The physical challenges are many: our shelter is in the middle of the countryside, at the top of a mountain which is accessed by an unfinished track. We have no clean running water, we source it from a near by river and then purify it. We have no mains electricity, we rely on solar power and generators we have no fixed phone line and rely on satellite.

Party in the Park - 31 May

On Sunday 31st May 2015 we celebrated our 25th Anniversary at Pedregales Park and it proved to be a great success with a fantastic turnout and a wonderful atmosphere.

Jazz band Transatlantic entertained the guests with their mellow music whilst tapas, paella and vegetarian chilli were served along with plenty of liquid refreshment of course! Entertainment also included face painting, a bouncy castle and yoga to keep the children occupied, all provided by Adana's amazing volunteers.


25th Annual ADANA Dog Show - 26 April 2015

Once again the ADANA dog show has proved to be a rip roaring success. Taking place a few weeks earlier than in recent years, and despite the adverse weather conditions, visitors and competitors turned out in force to make our anniversary show one to remember.

With 40 stalls offering everything from doggie accessories, preserves, coffee, fencing solutions, insurance, cakes, dog grooming and satellite TV to the ever popular Tombola stall, there was something on offer for everybody. Trisha and her team on the café pulled out all the stops to keep the masses fed and watered.


Quiz Night - 19 Mar

The 19th March saw the second ADANA quiz night held at the Irish Fiddler in Estepona. The absolutely dreadful weather was probably the reason for only five teams entering, but nevertheless we managed to raise €105.

After being runners up last month, an ADANA team aptly named the 'Poo Pickers' claimed victory. We send out huge thanks to Peta Seville for being our quiz mistress and to all those that braved the rain to support us.

The next quiz, at the same venue will be on April 23rd.

2nd Annual March Dog March - 15 Mar

This years ADANA March march was a huge success. Taking place on Sunday 15 March 2015, the turnout was overwhelming especially considering it was UK Mothers Day.

Beforehand we suggested that people may want to join our event and walk one of our shelter dogs, we had such a tremendous response and with the help of our devoted and hard working team of volunteers we were able to transport and walk 30 of our own dogs.


Quiz Night - 19 Feb

The first ADANA quiz night

"Some time ago my wife Finola, and I suggested to Helen (Ellis) that Adana would benefit from a monthly quiz to earn the organisation a little bit of money. (As for several years Finola and I have been regular quiz-goers at the Animals in Need monthly quiz held at The Brasserie, Casares Golf Club, run by Paul Taylor and very successful in terms of attendance and money raised)
