ACTIN, making changes for animals in Spain.

Animal care Treatment International Network has been set up to make changes for the animals in Spain, who suffer abandonment and cruelty. What we plan to do is to bring awareness of the problems to the world’s media. We need to promote education, new legislation and support neutering campaigns. It is necessary to get support Internationally to put pressure to bear on the Spanish government and to persuade them to take more responsibility for the lack of animal welfare in Spain. ACTIN plans in the future to bring about these changes through media awareness. Actin will tell the truth of how it is on an everyday basis, particularly in the country villages of Murcia, where there is a lot of ignorance and abuse. They will tell of what the volunteers deal with and how the abuse of animals is getting worse. ACTIN will endeavor to bring about campaigns for sterilization and education in schools. There is a need for a Society to protect the animals and this is what ACTIN aim to do in the future but we need much support to achieve our aims.

Actin don't have a shelter or a shop, they rely on donations and support

From Viv, President of ACTIN: "All of our dogs are in kennels and the costs are around 1500 to 2000€ a month for their kennelling, we also have at least 1 to 2k euros per month to pay in vet fees. We don't have a shelter, or a shop, we rely on donations and support. We do get support and are very thankful but what we really need is to get these dogs homed. 

They are taken out of a pound so they could survive, or removed from cruel situations and so need loving homes. We also often help with abandoned dogs locally, when no one else can help. When people see dogs in the pound, they see their predicament and so want to help them out and we understand. But Actin is trying to make changes to some of the awful things.

We have a case against a bad pound in court, we have gone to hell and back to get this case heard - and if it is proved (which is hard in this country) it will be a first and will hopefully make a landmark and help to change things in Spain for animals.

We have other court cases - one of a man who killed his dog after it was saved from falling from a balcony - and many other things that take our time and energy to work on. What holds us back is the need to help dogs directly, to get them adopted and to raise funds for them...please help us to home some of these dogs by sharing them...they are on our website we also have an FB page  

Until these dogs are safely in homes they are still not getting the life they deserve...as much support as we are getting we still need more. As a non rescue people are not immediately drawn to us but we do the same and more...thank you."

Donations will be gratefully received. Paypal admin@actin-spain.com or through the Actin website  http://www.actin-spain.com/donations-sponsorship/
