ASAP Dog Rescue Charity based in Granada. Appeal   https://www.facebook.com/ASAPGranada

At ASAP we do exactly what our name says – we save local dogs from suffering as soon as possible. We started very small with just a couple of concerned people. We are still small but we now have more active volunteers . Whenever possible, we want to provide a permanent home for all our rescued animals. And we have done so very successfully over the past few years. As well as teaching greater tolerance and understanding of dogs we also encourage people to foster them. Re-homing is an important part of the project, the more dogs we can rehome, the fewer strays there will be on the streets. The dogs themselves are the project’s best ambassadors. They reward their new owners with loyalty and affection, bringing comfort and joy into their lives.  Sterre is one such dog. Sterre’s mother was a Mastin and her father, probably, a Podenco. She was found on the streets at 5-weeks of age with her mother, brother and two sisters and was taken in to foster care immediately. Sterres mother and two sisters were rehomed quite quickly but shortly after Sterre and her brother fell seriously ill with the Pavo virus. Sterres brother died, but Sterre miraculously survived. She is our longest ever foster care dog, of almost 18-months . She is very attached emotionally to Els, her Foster Carer, and is resistant to anyone new.   She is now about to enter a socialisation programme in order to better her chances of adoption and a new life.So, this is a renewed appeal for donations and the promise of a fresh start for this lovely girl, who deserves so much more. If you could spare, 5 euros or £5 pounds, then together we could make a real difference!!!! Thank you so much for your help.    If you have a Paypal account then please use info@asapgranada.es – and select ‘pay friends and family’ to avoid charges.  Please do not use this email for any other communication.We have a NEW bank account with Caja Rural  in Spain- details below.
