Please  Help Connie    

ConnieThis beautiful girl Connie, was found emaciated and very unwell.
She has been in a foster home where her health has improved enormously. Unfortunately though, she does still have a skin condition which means she can´t mix with the other dogs in the home and she is having to spend long periods in a crate. Understandably she is very bored and her life isn´t good.
Connie desperately needs a foster home where she can move around freely most of the time instead of being cooped up. She also needs a weekly bath.
She is a lovely, friendly gentle girl and would be delighted to be with someone who can spend the time with her that she deserves.
If you have a home without animals, please consider fostering Connie for a while, even just short term would be marvelous. She has been through so much!
If you can foster Connie, even if you are here on holiday for a short time, please get in touch with us at axarquia-rescue@hotmail.com We will pay for everything she needs so there will be no cost to you. Please, please can you help Connie?



Puppies Need a Home   

pup02 pup01 Six lovely puppies were abandoned by the roadside in a cardboard box three weeks ago. They were in good condition but frightened as their mother was nowhere to be seen! They were very friendly although frightened of course. We have managed to home three of them and need to find good homes for the remaining three. They are all male and of similar appearance. They are easy to handle, eat and sleep well. They have just had their first vaccinations. The remaining three need loving homes. For more information please telephone or email us.
