Welcome to ADANA
Welcome to ADANA
ADANA (Association for the Rights of Abandoned Animals) is a charitable organisation on the Costa del Sol run by volunteers. Our aims are to promote love and affection for dogs, to provide facilities for the shelter and care of abandoned, sick and injured dogs, while seeking new homes for them and to assist the local authorities with such animals.
ADANA never puts down a healthy animal.
In order to be granted the Zoological License to operate, ADANA needs to upgrade the infrastructure, renew the sewage system, install a new roof, fire alarm and many other items, costing a total of 159,500 euros.
Thank you to all the generous friends and volunteers who have contributed to our construction fund so far. The response is fantastic!
Please donate to enable ADANA to continue the work we do to save these poor, unwanted animals.

ADANA has engaged the services of well-renowned architect Juan Salvador Martin Galan and specialist engineer Francisco Sanchez Navarro to create a complete project, approved by the Ayuntamiento of Estepona, and OCA, under the guidance of the president of ADANA and the governing board and with the due diligence of our Lawyer, Ildefonso Ortega Moreno. He has guided us through the legal minefield of the project, Town Hall negotiations, regulations, etc. extremely professionally.
We again reiterate that all these works are totally funded by the friends and volunteers of ADANA and Adana does not receive any financial assistance from national or local government, surviving on public donations alone. This enables us to continue to save abandoned dogs in our area and rehome them successfully.
The new project includes
a new sewage system, complete with a new biodegradable storage process unit ( depuradora) that protects the environment and secures the area of the park
a new roof over nine pens in patios (No 9 to No 17) for the animals protection
a new fire alarm and means of escape
These are supplemented by an additional upgrade in the solar electrical generation system, increasing it to 12 kilowatts,
and a new standby generator with the capacity of 18 kilowatts to cover future expansion.
The total cost of the new project will be 188,000 euros, including IVA, which we continue to raise funds for, and will keep the shelter operations running at full capacity.
We wish to thank all those involved who have helped make this happen - we we could not do it without you
This week has been a momentous one for ADANA, when the President signed the contract for the Shelter Project, with the Atlas Group, specialist construction group for the total revision of the ADANA Rescue Shelter in Parque Los Pedregales Estepona.
These works are required to bring the Shelter up to the most modern levels for the application for the new Zoological Licence. The plans have been 4 years in the making.

The horrendous fire that devastated the Sierra Bermeja region left ADANA damaged, but determined to rise again from the ashes. The increased profile afforded by the inferno has meant that ADANA has been fortunate to benefit from a number of fundraising activities.
This has enabled us to repair the shelter and continue our work to attain the Zoological License, which will carry ADANA forward for the next generation.
Since the evacuation and the fire damage sustained to the shelter services on 13th September, the volunteers and your donations have performed miracles in getting the shelter operational again and returning the abandoned dogs to our care. This was also achieved with fantastic help from all the emergency fosterers who helped save the dogs.
ADANA suffered a great deal of fire damage.
We lost our main water supply, with 2km of piping burnt out from the higher section of the Sierra Bermeja mountain.
We lost our stores container which was completely burnt out; inside were all our spare pumps, 50 event tables, 12 new kennels, events cooking materials and many other items.
We sustained internal smoke damage to the walls and infrastructure of the shelter.
We had fencing damaged in many places, and many other smaller problems.
All these were resolved and the shelter was in temporary operation within a week, with all the major technical damage being repaired and replaced within a month. Throughout, we continued to take in more newly-abandoned dogs. This was achieved by direct public donations, from you all, and total dedication from our volunteers.
We received no financial assistance from national or local government.
There were many events, sponsored by individuals, who donated every cent to the ADANA dogs. We thank you all.
We are so grateful to all our friends who supported ADANA, including
“Estenova Veterinary Clinic” for absorbing our September vet account and continuing to support throughout the emergency
the contractors “Riegas Vallejo” who came immediately to our aid with the new water main, only charging for the materials and providing the labour free
all the local schools who provided us with food and blankets and many other items
the replacement storage container, which was donated by one of our very serious friends of ADANA
the emergency water tanks, which were also donated by other very good friends.
We have had absolutely incredible support and the list is endless.
The internal areas of the shelter were repainted and emergency water supplies installed immediately, by a whole group of ADANA volunteers, who worked tirelessly every single day, until we were fully operational again.
To everyone who has worked, helped, donated and supported ADANA, we thank you all; we could not have done it without you.
From September 13th to 16th, the Sierra Bermeja mountain was torched by one of the worst wildfires in Spain's history. All the dogs at the ADANA shelter were evacuated safely in time, but the shelter itself sustained considerable damage and much of its infrastructure was destroyed.
Dinner and show at La Resina Golf & Country Club, Estepona, Saturday 17th July at 7:30.
Just 20 euros and this includes a three-course dinner and entertainment from the incomparable Neily Diamond.
We wish to thank all the generous friends and volunteers who have contributed so far to the fantastic sum of 12,526 euros to our construction fund.
The response has been great!
For those who would like to contribute to secure the future of the brilliant work the volunteers do at the ADANA shelter, rescuing, looking after and finding new homes for the abandoned dogs in our area, please continue to donate and help us reach our target.
