A Dog is for life, not just for Christmas!

A well worn slogan that's still as poignant today as it was when it was originally used, in an advertising campaign, over 35 years ago.

The holiday season is traditionally a time of year when people add four-legged friends to their families. Children aren’t at school and adults are on leave from work making it convenient to adopt a pet, however, Adana urges families to think about pets beyond the holidays.

Many people decide to adopt at this time of year, but we would encourage families to think beyond the Christmas period to what lifestyle commitments may be on the horizon for the entire family.


ADANA 100 Club

The winners of the 100 club draw for October and November are:
October - ball 89 - Sandra Walker-Kincaid
November - ball 5 - Jayne Fisher

The clue to what the 100 club entails is in the name. It is a monthly draw of just 100 numbers in which participants can win a cash prize. It is a highly successful way of raising regular funds (particularly in the UK) by schools, charities, sports groups and associations.


ADANA working with...Podencoworld

"Podencoworld was founded as an animal charity in The Netherlands on October 4, 2011. Podencoworld Netherlands is a non-profit organisation that helps abandoned, neglected and abused podencos in Spain and Portugal. We work closely with various animal shelters in these countries. Our team consists of highly motivated volunteers who are all unpaid and enthusiastically committed to the welfare of the podencos in need.


Christmas Raffle help needed

We started selling our Christmas raffle tickets in October. The draw will take place on the 18th December. We have some fantastic prizes, including a week's stay in the Marbella Villa (shown below). We still need volunteers to sell these tickets.

We printed 300 books with 50 tickets in each (1.50 euro for one ticket, 5 euros for 5), so we need:
300 people to take one book each, or
150 people to take 2 books each, or
75 people to take 4 books each ...............

I think you get my drift!

World Animal Day 2015

Once again, in celebration of World Animal Day which each year, falls on October 4th, Adana took to the streets, well the doors of Carrefour to be precise! To raise awareness of the plight of abandoned and stray dogs, to raise the profile of our organization and of course to raise much needed funds.


Camerata Sotogrande supporting ADANA

On Friday 31st July the Camerata Sotogrande had great pleasure in handing over to three beneficiaries – Adana, Cruz Roja and Hogar Betania – the proceeds of the very successful Summer By The River Concert which was sponsored by Blevins Franks and took place at the end of June.

In total the concert raised some €5,400, one third of which was presented to each charity. The Camerata Sotogrande continues to provide choir accompaniment for weddings and special events in and around Sotogrande. It is very much hoped that there will be further opportunities in the next 12 months to raise money for good causes.
