ADANA and World Animal Day

World Animal Day is celebrated every year in the first week of October and of course ADANA took part in collecting outside Carrefour as usual. This year’s collecting team was organised as usual by Susie Brown and again, as usual, the Estepona public donated generously.


Urgent help needed!

Foster home for Letizia - she is a young Bodeguero/Chihuahua cross born with an enlarged oesophagus and can't swallow properly so she has to eat with her head in a raised position and can eat only very soft mushed food.

She needs long-term fostering urgently.

Val Reed

ADANA is sad to announce that Estepona resident Val Reed, an inspired ADANA volunteer, passed away in hospital in Marbella after a brave battle with cáncer.

Val was a unique and much loved character who will be remembered for her original fund raising ideas. She organized the first ever ADANA Dog Walk, drove up and down the coast controlling ADANA collection boxes and was a fiendish record keeper with an invaluable folder of references.


Rock the Castle!

A very enjoyable and profitable night was held at an open-air rock concert held at Duquesa Castle as part of the Manilva Fair. Tribute bands Queen and Deeper Purple headlined the bill and ADANA was on hand to ensure the wine and beer flowed throughout the night - in fact we ran out of all alcoholic drink just before midnight!!


ADANA proud to be part of pride

Manilva's first ever Gay Pride parade on 17 June 2017, organised by the Manilva Council, saw the streets packed with enthusiastic crowds cheering on the many decorated floats. ADANA was proud to be part of the celebrations and over thirty ADANA volunteers and Board members accompanied the gaily decorated float, shaking their collection boxes.


Castle art exhibition raises funds for ADANA

ADANA volunteers enjoyed a day out in the sun at Duquesa Castle and raised over 1800 euros. The successful fundraising event took the form of an art exhibition with local artists exhibiting their works for sale with a percentage of the sale going to ADANA.


Great response to stolen generator

Within hours of reading about the theft of our generator from the perrera, ADANA received the offer of a replacement plus two generous donations to enable us to buy a new one. Thank you so much Tom, Richia and Bidu, and the gentlemen from the Port, pictured here.

New isolation pens

When a new arrival comes to ADANA, usually hungry, dirty and terrified, it has to be put in a pen on its own until the dog's temperament has been assessed and a suitable pen with other dogs is found. Sometimes a dog needs to be on its own because it is unwell or recovering from illness.


Councillors and TV crew visit ADANA

For the first time in many years, ADANA was honoured to receive a visit from two members of the ruling Partido Popular party in Estepona, Councillors Susana Casano and Adrian Trujillo, accompanied by a tv crew. The Councillors had come to inspect the renovations they and ADANA had carried out at the perrera.
