Rescue Pups 2015

Natalie Osborne, dog trainer, ADANA supporter and friend contacted the kennels to ask if we had any pups that could be borrowed for one week to train Dog Trainers at In the Dog House. Quite often pups really need a bit of lead training and socialisation to help them find homes so ADANA jumped at the chance for a few of our charges to get a paw up! (And a week free of puppy pooh!)


Annual General Meeting - 29 Apr

The ADANA AGM 2015 - 29 April at the Sports Stadium in Estepona (Estadio Francisco Muñoz Pérez, Avenida Juan Carlos I).

The ADANA Cookbook 2015, 2nd edition!

Following the enormous success of the first Adana Cookbook published in 2010, the 2nd edition is now well underway to finding its pride of place in the kitchens of animal lovers and supporters of Adana throughout Europe and beyond.

The Adana Cookbook, 2nd edition, is currently being compiled with a target release date of April 2015. The book will be published in both Spanish and English to help broaden its appeal and offer the best opportunity to maximise proceeds, all of which go directly to ADANA.


The ADANA Paw Lock Wall

Inspired by the Love Lock Bridge in Paris where romantic couples write their special messages of love and devotion on a padlock and then place it on the bridge, we have decided to make our very own Paw Lock Wall up at the Shelter.

We invite adopters past, present and future, ADANA members, supporters and volunteers, in fact anybody who loves animals, to help us create our very own version. Write your message on a padlock and fix it to the 'wall'.

Thank you CAP

CAP stands for Club Charity and Pleasure, they meet weekly, mainly on a Wednesday, in the Benamara area of Estepona. Whilst enjoying activities such as bridge, bowls and singing, they find time to raise money for many local charities. ADANA Vice President Michele Yanez Bowker was recently invited along to collect a cheque on behalf of ADANA. We would like to thank all at CAP for their generous donation.

Spotlight on ADANA

ADANA 25th anniversary
This months spotlight feature is going to be on US! Yes that's right! Our charity ADANA is celebrating 25 years since it's official constitution in 1990.

I'm not going to ramble on about how the organisation was started, you can find that information in numerous back issues of the newsletter and also in the front of the ADANA cook book! I would like us all to look forward...

Trouble with December's Newsletter

We had trouble getting our newsletters sent out this month and, to date, only 85 have been sent (update: as of 6 December there have been 196 succesfully sent). We are now changing to a new system called MailChimp and it is asking that we confirm the validity of all the email addresses in the newsletter list and that we also get confirmation from those with valid email addresses that they wish to continue to receive the newsletter.
