Pet Project this week is covering another “Pet Project”. The project is the brainchild of Christina Kastin who set up www.guide4dogs.com. She has been negotiating tirelessly with Majorca’s councils in order to make the island more accessible to people who want to take their pets with them. In particular she has been working on getting approval to allow dogs onto beaches in the wintertime, setting up parks for dogs where they can run freely, letting visitors and residents alike know about which services there are in each area around the island. If you have a “Pet Friendly” premises then you can request a “Si!” sticker to put in your window which shows that you allow dogs in your business. Just contact Christina through her website. She has also made a six page brochure in collaboration with four of Majorca’s municipalities and a hotel in Arenal (representing Palma) and supported by ATB (The Balearic Tourist Board). The brochures, which are in four languages in total are to “plant a seed” in the minds of potential holiday makers that Majorca is also a great winter time destination and to suggest that they bring their dogs on holiday with them! They have printed 70,000 copies of this leaflet so look out for them around and about. http://www.guide4dogs.com/downloads/leaflet.pdf
Dogs For U are holding a fundraising event on Saturday 18th August which will have an Arabian Nights theme to it. It is a chance to enjoy a seductive Middle Eastern evening with good food and drinks in a beautiful Campanet countryside finca. Tickets are 15€ per person and includes drinks, mouthwatering Middle Eastern and North African dishes, a hint of mystery and exotic aromas. The moves and romance of belly dancers and a chance to dress up in fancy dress if you like! All of the profits going to Dogs For U. You can make a booking by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. They are also holding an auction (which has some amazing lots). You can see all of the lots on this link here: http://dogsforu.org/pre-bidding-has-started/ and you can bid online, you don’t even have to be in Majorca to bid. Just up to July of this year Dogs For U have rehomed more than thirty dogs, some of which have been due to the support of the Majorca Daily Bulletin and Pet Project (which makes us all very happy!). We hope that you will be able to support the event by either attending or perhaps donating an auction lot.
