In recent months we’ve received one or two small donations directly into our bank account and while we know the donor’s name in most instances, we don’t have their contact details to thank them.
Therefore I am posting a global ‘thank you’ to everyone who has donated to Protectora y Santuario Scooby, yet we are not able to thank you personally. Your contributions are greatly appreciated and are a much needed for our monthly expenses including food, staff, transport and veterinary costs. We have beenrescuing countless puppies amongst all of the dogs we’ve saved this year.
The unscrupulous breeding is relentless. Thankfully we’ve been able to home some of the dogs via our partner organizations in Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, Slovenia, Finland, Holland, Switzerland, and a few to Canada and the USA.
Hellen Pels of Scooby Katjes has done some sterling work to home the cats in Belgium and Holland. This is the best part of the work, seeing the dogs and cats meet their families for the first time.
We have homed more than 400 dogs and 150 cats this year. Quite something!
Earlier in the year we raised enough money to renew 800m of fencing in the oldest part of the shelter. This was thanks to a Dutch online auction, Swiss, German and British fund-raising efforts and our sponsored runners in the Medina del Campo Marathon as well as some individual donations from supporters. The work has started.
It is a much needed renovation but unfortunately it has been hard to find builders to take on the work. Strange how when we have the money, we don’t have the manpower and vice versa. Still, the work is underway now.
Thank you. Fermin Perez, Protectora y Santuario Scooby
