CHRISTINE BAILLIE of HELP Murcia Mar Menor recently visited the Los Infiernos Perrera dog pound in Los Infiernos.
She was given a conducted tour by Denise, who is a Los Infiernos Perrera Supporters (LIPS) volunteer, while Roger Smith, another LIPS member, later explained how the centre’s work is split between the dog pound and the association.
Los Infiernos Perrera owns the kennels that house the dogs and cats, providing shelter and food for the animals while LIPS volunteers rehome the dogs.
Some find new homes here in Spain but most go to other European countries including the UK and Germany.
LIPS raises the money to pay all the vets’ fees, transportation costs, import duties and documentation.
The volunteers also look after the dogs’ welfare and exercise the animals as much as possible. Great care is taken to ensure that the new owners and their homes are suitable for the dog they are adopting.
The following day, Christine was pleased to present Roger Smith and Denise with a €2000 donation to help them carry on their good work.
This is all part of HELP’s policy of helping others, including charities within the Murcia region.
Readers who think they could spare a couple of hours a week for HELP should contact their Los Alcazares office on 968 570 059 or come and talk to one of our volunteers at their Outlet in the Oasis Bulivar.
