Please join us this Saturday at our shelter, for an amazing charity party. Amazing shows and surprises.
It is not only dogs that are treated so cruelly by people. This week this tiny new born kitten was found in a box in the basura, cold, hungry and with its umbilical cord attached. We work closely with an organisation called KittyCatz who are now caring for this this little baby. www.kittycatz.net
Do you know who owns this dog? We are looking for her owners as its possible they are unaware she has been injured. We have called her Vikki and she is a German Shepherd cross of approximately 7 years of age. She has unsightly clipped ears. We are unsure how her injuries were sustained but it was a blunt force trauma to the face causing horrific injuries to her teeth and jaw. It’s possible she has been involved in a road traffic accident. She has now had an operation to repair her face and teeth and is now recovering at Live Arico. We do not know the exact area that she was found at the moment we are trying to contact the person who contacted us to find out but in the mean time if you know who owns her please send us a private message.
We, at Live Arico PAWS can’t thank Leslie Elvis Moore enough, he arrived at the charity shop In San Eugenio with another large donation that he has been working so hard to raise, he has, to date raised an amazing 3057.43€ for the abandoned animals.
As you can imagine, cash is always short, as vet and feed bills are usually very high. Because of Les’s help, we can for the first time plan ahead and work to improve and enhance the environment for the dogs, many of whom have and will be with us for some time, (mainly due to age and large size).
A play area with things of interest to the dogs is being planned and some kind of water area, as the summer months can be hard on the dogs, they would love to be able to have a splash about.
We have already spent some of the money helping a smaller shelter secure their fencing, as sadly some hunters dogs broke in and killed and injured some animals.
Thank you all so much for continuing to be supportive to Les and Live Arico PAWS, your help will make such a positive difference to so many animals lives
Tina needs a foster home can you help her?? She is a young Podenco cross who was found after the hunting season. She originally came to Arico very anxious and scared. She is slowly improving and learning to trust. She needs a foster home where she would be out of a kennel environment to be able to settle into a normal home situation. She will take time and patience but the rewards will be amazing. Live Arico will of course offer full support if you are able to help this lovely dog who just needs a chance of normality.
Alice has sadly lost her battle with cancer. Her final weeks were spent in the home of one of our carers where she received the extra love and care she truly deserved. Alice will be missed by all, rest in peace our little ray of sunshine.
This is the beautiful Mila who was abandoned and is now looking for a forever home. He is super loving and absolutely loves lots of attention from people. He is already castrated and now needs a home urgently preferably as a house cat as his skin has already been burnt when he was on the streets. If you would like to ask questions or meet him contact us.
One of the islands favourite acts is Leslie Elvis Moore, he came to visit the charity shop today with a great surprise. He has been appealing for donations and collecting money for the animals of Live Arico PAWS during his Elvis shows, offering extra songs for cash.
He has raised an amazing amount of 500 euros, we are so grateful to Leslie and his generous fans at his shows at Charlys bar and Calypso Bar for their support for Live Arico. Many thanks to the bars for supporting his efforts.
We will have to get him up to the shelter with his Elvis costume…now theres a photo opportunity. We appreciate your support so much, thank you x
Thank you all so much for your continuing support for the animals of Live Arico PAWS throughout this year.
Sometimes we receive animals into our care who are perfectly healthy and just require some vaccinations and advertising to find a new forever home, more often than not sadly, many have suffered a lifetime of neglect and abuse. They are emotionally destroyed and have lost faith in humans who should be their guiding light. Without the dedication, patience and love from the volunteers, these animals would give up their will to live, without public support, we could not give these animals a second chance of a happy life.
Every single person who helps in any way is invaluable to us, whether you volunteer, donate clothes, food , money, donate to the shops, buy from the shops, bar owners who host events, entertainers who support and sing at events..whatever you do, thank you so much. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful and Happy New Year xxx
Today was our annual vaccination program. All the dogs (more than 50) are vaccinated with the normal yearly vaccines, plus heart worm and rabies. Some new dog were tested for heart worm and thankfully were all negative. A huge thank you to our vet Elena and Pilar who gave their time for free to help and to the volunteers who helped run this event. Finally a huge thank you to all our sponsors who not only donate money, but also items for the shops, and of course those who purchase these items. Without all of the above, today’s success would not have been possible.
