Help the Transition to a New Home.

Every day I interact with dogs as a dedicated fosterer and I’m richer for it.

Very occasionally a day is dominated by dogs, but most days are enhanced by their company. We currently have 4 foster dogs, with 1 shortly moving to her forever home. Longest foster tenure for us has been 1-1/2 years (she needed the extra time and work to prepare) and the shortest was 48 hours. In all cases, I feel supported by other volunteers who are working to help animals.

Fostering a dog is the best way to prepare them for a forever home. They grow more confident as they learn how to depend on their environment for food, exercise, shelter and affection. For many, perhaps most, these things weren’t  given previously. In turn, they give back affection and appreciation in spades. I believe that dogs kept in kennels or refuges don’t receive the same benefits that dogs in foster homes do. It only makes sense that a foster home better prepares an animal for their next step – a forever home.

Can you open your home and your heart to temporarily help a dog or a cat? If you are worried about attaching, best way to start out can be to take an animal already adopted who is only awaiting transport.

If you don’t know how to find an animal looking for foster care, I’ll help you connect with local animal charities working hard (all volunteers) to help these animals. Come on, give it a try. You’ll meet some really nice people while helping an animal. Contact Denise 667 299 017 (movil or Whatsapp).



Metamizol and Medication in General

(No more items on the subject. Thanks to all particpants)

As a Registerd Nurse working in the  Andalucia (. 25 km radius  of Nerja) I would say.Metamizol has its use in end of life care and even then may not be acceptable to different individuals.

I am regularly finding that I am asked to visit people who have been over prescribed pain relief  especially the elderly after operations.

There are often drug errors when two different types of medication are prescribed which drop a patient’s blood pressure and I ” pick up on them'” ( no pun intended) when I am called to see a patient who is having falls.

There are also issues when patients have electrolyte imbalances and have a few different ” water pills” on the go and develop incontinence and confusion as a result..

It is always worth asking the doctor to explain what the prescribed medication is for..what the Doctor prescribes may not exactly match what the patient thinks they are getting ,! Also consider the answer may not always be ” one more tablet”

Services Available –Scrapping a Car


Just contact a vehicle scrap yard who are licensed to scrap and issue a licence of destruction for vehicles.
They will collect the car and, usually, give you about €200 for it.



There is a dead car depot in entro Industrial Zambrano in Velez Malaga inland from the cemetery.

In Spanish the depot is called a desguace: Desguace Rodri.

1.) If you manage to drive the car to it they will give you 100€ for it and within a week you will receive the legal paper work (they take care of contacting trafico for you).

2.) If your car cannot make it there on its own, they will pick it up with a grua and you’ll pay for that service.
