COLLECTION FOR SPAMA

 
Our Spanish Volunters - Voluntariado SPAMA have organized a Collection day at Carrefour Express Calle Benissuai, Gandia. They will be pleased to accept donations of food for the animals, cat litter, shampoo, cleaning materials such as bleach, washing machine detergent etc. and any medications you may no longer need...........a lot of these are not only used for humans but for animals too.

If you can help please pop along tomorrow (Friday 13th!) or Saturday 14th with any donations.

Also if you use Facebook, please look at their page Voluntariado SPAMA

We would also like to thank AINF our friends in Holland (also on facebook) who have helped so many of our dogs find new homes in their country. They have held a month long appeal for donations to help us and we are delighted to say we have received 4,500 euros from them!!! What a wonderful Christmas present - we thank everyone concerned. This money will be put to good use at the shelter since the
Gandia Town Hall have still not paid us for our collection service and owe us a huge amount of money!
 
Money that would go towards the day to day running of our shelter.
 
Many thanks SPAMA la Safor
