"I am a Podenco Andaluz, one of those special Spanish hunting dogs with the extra big pointy ears. I didn't know I was special, but my two best human friends tell me all the time and that Podencos are all very special. 

I want to help the other Spanish dogs that live in the shelters, or on the streets because when I was a puppy someone left me at a shelter. I was only seven months old, I'm not sure what I did wrong but suddenly I had to share a pen with twenty other dogs, sleep on a cold concrete floor, and fight to get my food. I had some friends, but it was very cold in winter and very hot in summer. We got to play in the field once a week which was such fun. 

I spent 18 months there, and then one day my new best human friends came to see me, they took me away in a car and gave me a big cushion to sleep on and a blanket to cover me. Having human friends is the best. I want all the Spanish dogs and cats to have human friends. Please sponsor me to raise funds for the shelter and to help all dogs and cats have human friends."

Isa's thoughts are still with the Spanish dogs & cats suffering here in Spain so once again is doing the Sponsored walk in aid of SCAN & ACTIN on May 11th.

Last year Isa raised a whopping €400! We would like to beat that total this year.
Isa, (along with Nicki and Paul) will be joining SCAN on their annual sponsored walk. This year's event is on May 11th. Isa will be walking with one of the Rescue Dogs from SCAN.

If you would like to sponsor Isa you can either send money via paypal. Please note that there is a 50p paypal fee so the actual donation will be less, paypal email address

You can also do an online bank transfer, please contact Nicki for account details.

 All donations and sponsors will be documented and acknowledged on this page.

Once the event is complete and all sponsor money collected, proof of donations to each charity will also be posted on this page.

Isa is only looking for 1 euro or pound per km. (Please be aware Paypal charge 50p out of your donations)

 Thank you, in advance, for your kind & welcome donations!
