Abandoned Puppy

Aban02 abandoned pupPlease can you help?  I have yet another abandoned puppy.

She was left at the bin just down the track and, according to the vet,

is about 12 weeks old..

No collar and a few tics.

Lovely nature.

I’m at my wits end at the mo with my 94 year old dad in the UK that

I’m going back over regularly every 6 weeks to look after

My usband who’s had a stroke and can’t be left alone for more than a few days and, of course, my own two dogs.

I just can’t take another dog on, even to foster, as my OH just can’t manage it all when I’m not here.

People keep telling me to just dump her somewhere but I can’t do that.

I’m willing to pay for her to be spayed and contribute to her food costs if someone could be found to foster her.

PLEASE can you help? I’ve asked for help five times now with various dumped puppies so I’m hoping this time I might be lucky.

I’d love to foster her but it’s just impossible while things are so difficult.

I’ve already contacted the AAR, Malaga Rescue, the vets and all the neighbours. I’ve no idea what else to do??

I took her to the vets where she was checked over, de-lead and wormed.

She is 15 Kilos at the mo and isn’t going to be a small dog.

The vet thinks lab cross.

Any help or advice would be appreciated as I can’t keep her for much longer.

What’s on- The Phoenix Club Visit to Lobo Park

The Phoenix Club are off on Friday 15th July visiting the Lobo Park in Antequera.

Are you fascinated by wolves when you see them in movies and pictures? Do you feel like having a closer look at these fascinating animals?

The Lobo Park will allow you to observe and understand the dynamics of a wolf pack – one of the most social and team-oriented animals on the planet.

Located in the heart of Andalusia, Spain, and situated on approximately 400.000m² of land for huge enclosures for the wolves, the park was founded by Daniel Weigend and Alexandra Stieber as a private initiative in 2002. However, it opened up to the public in 2004 so that people could come and enjoy a day off with wolves, learning about their various life habits as well as different types of species and how they differ from each other. Pack life styles and dynamics can also be observed at the park.

The Lobo Park is built to provide the wolves with an environment that resembles their natural habitat. This allows the wolves enough space to display their innate traits, as well as play and run around freely. The tours are designed so that this natural behaviour can be observed, and the fear that most people have of wolves is cut down notably.

Only Daniel Weigend and Alexandra Stieber hand-raise the wolf cubs. This is a very complicated task, and no mistakes can be afforded. For this reason, not even park-workers and volunteers are allowed to touch the wolves. Daniel and Alexandra do it with high caution and carefully. The reward in turn is the trust they earn from the wolves, who greet them as friends when they visit rather than as outsiders to the pack. This de-socialization and socialization are important aspects in the process of gaining familiarity so that wolves do not turn in to pets, and continue to act true to their nature.

The park offers fun and excitement to families with a day closer to nature. The spacious landscape provides a refreshing change to the visitors, who not only enjoy the wolf packs and their various play and hunt habits, but also enjoy a luxurious natural reserve. The tours are conducted by professionals who are well-aware of wolf psychology as well as of the different pack forces and vibes. It is educational as well as a way to relax.

The price?  €35pp which and includes:

  • entry to the park
  • coach fare
  • lunch
  • driver’s gratuity
  • Children under 12 will receive a discount on the adult price.

For more information on any of our trips or events call Gail on 951067723, emailphoenixsocialclub@yahoo.co.uk or catch us on the web at www.phoenixsocialclub.co.uk

The Phoenix club is a registered organisation raising funds for 3 local charities and Help4Heroes in the UK.  We meet every tuesday at La Vega Restaurant, Torre del Mar between 12 and 2 and you can book or pay from 12.15 onwards.  Do pop in and meet us.
