Dog Fostering System – Advice Needed

I wonder if someone could answer a query as I’ve no idea how the fostering system works.  I have had an offer of fostering for Bella from Irene who says she can probably foster her until the end of August which is great news as I have to go back to the UK to sort out my 94 year old father who has had a fall.

However, as it’s impossible for me to have her back (I may have to stay in the UK),  what happens after August?  Does it mean that, once she is in the system, she will be found another fosterer or adopter or would it be back down to me to find someone else?

To be honest I’m getting quite desperate as I just can’t keep her but don’t know what to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Torrox Ayuntamiento Question –

I think I remember hearing that a representative from Torrox Ayuntamiento comes down to Torrox Costa one morning a week.

Does anyone know when and exactly where this representative comes to?

Expats in La Herradura ?

I’m new to La Herradura and would love to meet some Expats living here.

Lots of great people in Nerja, Torrox and beyond but I can’t imagine there aren’t any Expats living in my new community.

Would like to meet and get the insiders view of this lovely village.

What’s on-Motorbike Ride for Charity – Response


It is on Tollox, not Torrox Costa.

I am told it is a place where ferias are normally held but there should be plenty of “Motos” signs when you arrive.

It should start at abou 12 to day Saturday and continue until to morrow afternoon.



I too have wondered what it was and where etc having seen a tiny article in the paper a few weeks back. After much searching I have found a bit more info after Googling ‘Sonrisas sobre Ruedas’.

The main car park in Torrox where the olive press is has been cleared to put up a stage so I presume the concert is there. Still not sure about the procession but there is a Facebook page but as I’m not on Facebook I can’t read it!   https://www.facebook.com/Sonrisas-Sobre-Ruedas-455235037996356/

As usual here it is a struggle to find info about activities that are going on, and we usually read about it after the event as it wasn’t publicised well.

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

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