MOJACAR charity Paws-Patas has launched an urgent fundraising appeal as they need to raise €10,000 for an essential quarantine unit.
The Executive Committee has agreed that Paws-Patas desperately requires the construction, following the deaths of several puppies last year who were left abandoned at the gates of their shelter and were infected with the life-threatening Parvo virus.
Fundraising has already begun for the unit, after Shoestring Productions and the cast of Hotel La Resistance managed to raise €585 from ticket and raffle sales at their performance at the MontMartre Bar/Restaurant in Mojacar.
The money is the first donation towards the quarantine unit and will go towards purchasing the materials to build the safe haven away from the main kennel block.
Paws-Patas has a number of future fundraising events planned already, but are desperate for volunteers’ suggestions for further events.
The charity’s next event will see FUSION play at Solare in Turre on Saturday February 10 at 1:30pm. Chrissie Cremore from Paws-Patas will be there to tell those interested more about the charity and answer any questions.
Following that, they will hold a celebration of the Chinese New Year, Year of The Dog, on Friday, February 16 at The Roof Gardens in Parque Commercial in Mojacar.
The event begins at 2pm and there will be a special menu for €15, with live music from Andy and Nadine, Lady Ellen and Stuart Drury plus a fun quiz and raffle.
Tickets can be purchased from Paws-Patas locales in Mojacar, Turre and Buganvillas or at the restaurant.
All proceeds will be donated towards The Quarantine Unit Fund.
