Thanks for vet info: I would like to thank all the people who have contacted me regarding my advert for a good vet in the area between Nerja and Torre Del mar. It would be impossible to thank you all individually as the response was wonderful, but it is heartwarming that there are so many animal lovers out there who can be bothered to help, so a massive thank you to you all. I hope all you animal lovers will be in support of APA sanctuary that Nerja council is closing down, very sad and a poor decision as it is their streets that APA keep clear of strays and find homes for them. Animals have rights as well!
Kind Regards, Lilian ; lilian.maddison @ btopenworld.com


Shelter Closure Update: Hi friends in the Nerja area!!! Please show up (with your dog if you have one) on the Balcon de Europa (Nerja) by the town hall on Saturday the 21st at 11:00. A big demonstration against closing APA (the local dog shelter). Please help support a great cause!! APA has been given 2 weeks notice to close up the shelter and find homes for 50 dogs. If not possible they will go to the dog pound Don Animal where they will be killed after 10 days. Please let us know if you can home or foster a dog!!! Hope to see you. It matters.
