THE expatriate community is being called upon to help build kennels for a dogs’ home after the charity was evicted to make way for a golf course.
One of the longest running animal charities in the Vega Baja area, SAT Animal Rescue, is building a new facility in San Isidro.
SAT President Dave Moor is appealing to local residents, businesses and corporate investors to help fund the build, after a long and difficult struggle to get all the necessary licences in place.
A major fudraising drive is under way to secure the future of hundreds of dogs in the Vega Baja.
“We are wanting to have around €50,000 before we can start the actual building of the kennels and have raised €11,000 so far,” he explained. To date the charity has re-homed more than 7,400 dogs and its general running costs are around €16,000 a month.
If you can help sponsor a kennel or would like to ‘buy a brick’, contact SAT now on 966 710 047 or email [email protected]
