Twelve day-old puppies dumped at the shelter

Workers at ADANA are used to sad sights but having two litters of new-born pups dumped overnight at the shelter gates was too much even for them.

The two litters, both without mothers to feed them, were dumped in identical fertiliser bags, after the shelter had closed for the night.


Fosterers needed

Could you be a foster Mum or Dad to one of our boys or girls? ADANA often needs short or medium- term homes for dogs for a variety of reasons, such as recovering from an operation or just a little 'respite' care. If you are interested, ring 952113467 and ask to speak to Viktor

Getting ready for cold weather

Winter draws on...and ADANA Maintenance Team Reg and Pete are busy preparing our kennels so our dogs can be draught free and comfortable in their pens. Reg and Pete have plans to provide five more isolation pens as well as seeing to the routine maintenance tasks that always need doing.

World Animal Day - October 2016

Local children collect for local dogs

Every year ADANA is out in force on World Animal Day, collecting money to help in their work of caring for and rehoming abandoned dogs. This year ADANA Organiser Susan Brown was helped by a large number of students from the Laude School, San Pedro, with their teachers, Mr and Mrs Chris Litchfield.


ADANA to the rescue

A family of holiday makers from Madrid were distraught when their beloved pet dog escaped and could not be found whilst they enjoyed a stroll around Manilva last week. Luckily the bewildered dog was found by ADANA Volunteer Chris Johnson who took the little dog to the ADANA kennels where it was fed, given water and provided with a comfortable bed for the night.


A sad story with a happy ending

ADANA Board members Reg Winkworth and Peter Roberts were dismayed to find on arriving at the ADANA kennels that in the night a dog had been thrown over the high fence surrounding the shelter. The dog had sustained several injuries including a broken femur and was, unsurprisingly traumatised. Reg and Peter immediately contacted the Vet Team at Clinica Veterinaria, Estepona, and although it was a Feria, agreed to come in to work to treat the poor dog, by now given the name Foxy. The Vet Team agreed to donate their services and reduce the fee which would normally have been around 600 euros to 300 euros to cover overheads.


Manilva Dog Walk

Newly elected ADANA Treasurer Reg Winkworth talks money - it's his job. But Reg walks the walk too...with fellow ADANA Maintenance Team member Peter Roberts and friends he organised a mass evening dog walk in early August from Castillo to Manilva and back. The dogs enjoyed the exercise as did the humans and a total of 284 euros was raised for ADANA.


A message from our new President

"It's a great honour to have been voted back on the Board, this time as President. Thank you all for your vote of confidence. Our new team has to build on the excellent work of the previous Board and this we have already started to do. We plan to make a few changes at the shelter, longer opening hours, completion of works needed to obtain the all-important Nucleo Zoologico and we have plans for the Sanctuary land.

"We intend to restart the quarterly open members' meetings , the first to take place on Wednesday the 28th September at the Padre Manuel Centre, from 7p.m. to 8.30 p.m. The topic for discussion will be the running of the ADANA Shelter. Anyone interested in the work of ADANA will be welcomed. We need your views and input.
