Update on Ace Charity La Cala, Malaga.
20 May 2011 @ 20:47

Today we heard of a potential tragedy that had been unfolding overnight at Ace Charity in Malaga province not too far away from where we live.  It had been a rough night of storms and infact  it had kept us awake until well after 4am. The pool in the garden was brimming by morning and needed to be drained off and there were tell tale signs of a heavy night of rain. It’s not unusual for us to get heavy rain, we get a lot but each bout of heavy rain brings new challenges. This time the challenge was a mud slide, and as if not unfortunate enough it was at the site of Ace-Charity the carers of over three hundred rescue dogs. That is no small number, these dogs come in all shapes and sizes and each have some sort of a story of abandonment.


We do not have the kind of gear that we would usually have in England such as shovels & boots etc but we thought the best thing to do is to get down there and see if we could do anything at all to help. To our surprise when we arrived at ACE, the rescue effort had being underway for many hours and great progress had been made.  All three hundred plus dogs had been saved, cleaned and the kennels were all cleared out too. They had some serious hardware by the means of very powerful jet washers and the whole effort looked like a professional well oiled machine.

To the absolute credit of ACE and  the volunteer workers, while all of this was happening they were continuing to provide everyday services such as spaying.  There are so very many stray dogs in Andalucia that even if you are certain that you do not want a dog you will likely come across a circumstance that will change your mind and when you do ACE provide a spaying service to further protect your adopted dog. look after so many dogs that would otherwise have an ominous fate and they need help with provisions. If you can provide any support in any form please contact them through their website

They are now asking please for blankets and food for the dogs as everything was lost at the shelter. If you can spare dog food or blankets, please contact FABIANNE on 610 752 350″
