I’m writing this just after the three kings day celebrations have finished; it’s pouring with rain and as anticipated we are back into a regional lockdown. Not a particularly good start to 2021 but this won’t deter us from continuing our work to help neglected and abandoned animals in the Mazarron area. We were lucky to have a window over the Christmas and Kings period where we were able to put on some fund raising events. Karen’s quiz night kept the grey cells moving while Alex Tipping from the Jersey Boys serenaded us with songs from Michael Buble, Elton John, and Sir Tom Jones. The ever popular Bazz Norton and Moya entertained us on Kings day and as usual they didn’t disappoint with a fabulous performance. Although most of our team live in the Cartagena area we are still hoping to continue with the planned events for January and I’ll report back about these events in the next article. Luckily the wonderful staff at Zambuca Beach Bar and Restaurant are happy to run these fund raisers for us and we are extremely grateful to them for doing this.
With permission from the local police we still continued to transport dogs to safety and to their forever homes. Although Brexit has caused some issues with taking dogs to the UK , FMA and the fabulous organisations we work with have worked hard to ensure that all the correct regulations are put into place.
Working in animal rescue has its ups and downs and although we have to remember the vast numbers of animals we have saved from neglect and suffering there are times when, for whatever reason, animals have come to us too late. With these cases we just have to remember that at least we were there to help them through their last days and provide love and care in their final hours.
Thank you as ever to all our supporters, fund raisers, donators, knitters, bakers, fosterers, adopters, transporters-you are all part of our FMA family and we couldn’t exist without you. Please keep following our Facebook page for all our news and events.
