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.

RIP dear Teddy

I've written many blog posts about Teddy, a blind puppy who was adopted from Spain to Scotland, the last one with links to previous posts is

All at Actin were devastated to hear the news that our beautiful blind rescue boy Teddy Trueheart died suddenly on 23rd September whilst out on his daily walk with his family in Scotland. Although it comes as a great shock, and none more so than for his family Colin and Marie Southon who gave him an amazing new life, we take peace from the fact that he was doing what he loved, walking and exploring his world.

Teddy arrived at Actin as puppy with glaucoma, his owner was going to take him to the Perrera to be put to sleep and Actin were called to try to help save him. From the start it was clear that he was a happy and very brave boy. He endured a lot as a puppy, and bravely overcame it all, making everyone who met him fall in love with this huge lovable pup.  When he had the operation to remove his eyes and ease his pain he turned into the happiest cleverest boy who loved life.

Sherlie Bradley his foster mum did a fantastic job caring for him during and after his operation, and then he found a fantastic new home in Scotland and undertook the huge journey from Spain to Scotland. We all have followed his story and progress along with many others in his facebook family, with anticipation and wonder. What an amazing life he had with his brothers and sisters, and Marie and Colin, running in the fields, playing with sticks, getting into mischief. We all feel stunned that he has gone from us so soon.

Teddy Trueheart had the most glorious life because of Marie and Colin and we know he will be very sadly missed by them, and by Teddy's brothers and sisters especially Bear Braveheart who was Teddy's best buddy and also blind. All we can do is send them our love, hugs, condolences and so much gratitude. We have all had such pleasure in seeing Teddy's joy of life and he will remain special in many peoples hearts.

Teddy is now running free at rainbow bridge and this time he can see his new world. We'll all miss you Teddy.
