Axarquia Animal Rescue is Proud and Delighted to announce New Website now running

Our new website is full of useful info, guides and of course our wonderful animals looking for their forever homes. Please click and take a look around – please share it will all your friends. The more people that check out the website, the more chance we have of finding fosterers and adopters.

This website is the culmination of months of work by Richard Mills and Marina Gavin-Mills who have given up hours and hours and hours of their time to design, create and implement our fantastic site.

We are so utterly grateful to them both.

Big thanks to all the team who helped develop and proof read the content.

Our thanks also go to David Axon for creating and managing our original site which has served us well. Our new site is directly driven by our new database (also created by Richard Mills) and means that our new website info is as good as it gets to ‘real time’.

So click on the link below and take a look around …….


Thank You

Diane McClelland


Vigilence in the Hot Weather


Passers-by are urged to keep an eye out for babies, small children and pets left locked in parked cars in spring and summer, and to take action quickly.

They will not be charged with criminal damage or sued by a motor insurer for smashing a window to get to a dog or a child left in a hot car.

Cheers, Keith,

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

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. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.
