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.

A poem to the government
20 January 2015 @ 11:12


Why wont they listen to the rescuers?

Rescue first, solutions after, we helped that dog but it’s just a plaster.
We are on our knees ‘no more’ we say to the government
Please, this is in Spain is an animal disaster


We see the fight in each other’s eyes we see the pleas in the abandoned eyes.
We are on knees to the government please; there are too many cases too many that need,
There are no resources so when will you listen, when will you care? You disregard us, it isn’t fair


To the government please, we are on our knees, our hearts are sore with more and more.
The dogs are sick, alone, and at our doors, we are scraping the barrel, we are on the floor
This curse we have, our love for dogs, it is a torment here, not a blessing for us; only to the dogs we save and love.


We are tired, we are sick, we no longer live...we are rescued out, our minds lost and frayed but still we cannot turn away,
If we did the guilt will kill us, so another day, not normal or right and no time to be normal or play


We just don’t know how, to save another, where to put more pups and their mother
We are on our knees, oh can’t you see; we pray to the government, give us our day

Please see their plight and see ours too, we are on our knees because of you
You believe that killing an innocent bull is fun to watch, though we tell you it’s cruel, We are on our knees and you are too brutal


You let the hunter starve his dog, hang from a tree, take a life they should not
You say nothing, you turn away, your culture is cruel, not part of modern day- you fool
You leave us lonely fighting and sad, you hurt the animals and it’s much too bad.


When will you see how much suffering is caused, not just to the animals but to the humans cause.
Take care now, for what you have done, because one day for sure our cause will be won.
But for now we plead, we are on our knees...can you not hear us and for the animals we plead?
