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.
Howlin at the Moon is the venue for our fun packed Christmas Party including, Raffle, Christmas food, Tombola and much much more. Come on down have a GREAT afternoon and help us raise money for the animals in our care,
Meet Alice our little ray of inspiration, who is always happy despite her health problems. Alice came to the refuge as an old lady a few years ago. She is 14 years old and has a number of mammary tumours. Despite her age and health issues, she still plays with her friends in her enclosure . She always has a wagging tail for her human friends too. Today we had the idea that maybe she would benefit from a t-shirt to provide support for the tumours. Alice thought this was fun and strutted her stuff like any super model, finally demanding extra cuddles from the volunteers. If you look you can see her t-shirt says team. Could you help support team Alice ??
This sweetheart of a Shar Pei we have called Fleur. She was found by one of our volunteers tied up outside the refuge yesterday with strangely, a plastic bag tied to one foot. When it was removed we found to our horror this growth/wound. She was taken immediately to our vets who have admitted her for pain relief, tests, and on going care. We hope to have some news very soon as to the nature of the problem but we are highly suspicious that its cancerous.
Christmas is fast approaching. Yates Showbar and Restaurant in Starco Las Americas is having a great Christmas party, with Full Christmas Dinner for 10 euros, and of course Santa will be there in his very own grotto. There will be entertainment, stalls and lots of fun to get you into the Christmas spirit. The bar is kindly raising money through this event for Helping hands who support under privileged children and Live Arico PAWS who support neglected and abandoned animals, both charities are based in Tenerife.
Please support this event and come along and have a great start to a very Merry Christmas.
