Recommendation – Needed Lawyer

Does anyone know a good lawyer who would deal with consumer issues.

 What’s on Local animal charities march for change


The chant ‘No perreras más protectoras’  (no dog pounds, more refuges) rang out in Rincon De La Victoria on the sunny morning of Saturday 20 February, when more than 60 supporters from local animal rescue groups came together to campaign for change in the often cruel way animals are treated here in Spain. In particular they would like to see the kill policy in perreras being abolished and the perreras being replaced with protectoras which care for the welfare of the animals.

The supporters, many with their own dogs and carrying placards with pro animal messages, gathered at the Plaza de Ayuntamiento in Rincon De La Victoria and after a minute of silence in respect of lives lost moved off along the Paseo Maritimo accompanied by the Guardia Civil.

The march received a lot of attention from people along the route with onlookers taking photographs and applauding the supporters and their cause.  One Guardia officer is quoted as saying that he would be willing to carry a banner as he believed in what the protesters were saying but unfortunately he was not allowed to.

The supporters taking part were from Animal Defense Action, Tail in Torrox, APARiV in Rincon de la Victoria and Axarquia Animal Rescue.

Everyone can help to make more and more people aware of the situation in the dog pounds and the cruelty inflicted on animals as another march has been arranged in Torre del Mar, for Saturday 5 March meeting at El Faro (the lighthouse) at 11.30am for 12.  Please come along and show your support.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
