This week’s Pet Project is a quick round up of fundraising events which are coming up in the next weeks in aid of rescued animals.
On Sunday 27th October there will be the “100% Animal” festival. This will feature various organisations, refuges, charities, and ecological groups. There will be a little market for organisations to sell gifts, live music, face painting, presentations, animal training demonstrations, a charity raffle, tennis, a Coolest Mongrel competition and the Coolest Ferret competition, and a dog beauty parade featuring dogs which need adopting. The event is happening at the Agroturismo Ca Na Susi which is on Carretera de Valldemossa at km 10.9 (100 metres from S’Esgleieta) and will run from 10am to 7pm on that Sunday. Any enquiries can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org
On Thursday 31st October, Halloween, you can join a part at Willies Bar in Magaluf. This bar is run by Nicky Morgan who has featured in these pages in the past. Nicky is a dedicated kitten carer, and has hand reared many, many little balls of fur! This fundraiser will be in aid of “Cat, Kitten and Furry Friends” which are two online groups of animal lovers who respond to animals in distress and give of their own time freely, generously and willingly. The idea came after a colleague and friend of Nicky’s, Elaine Gill, found a dying cat in the streets of Santa Ponsa and they realised that they needed to have some money available for emergency vet bills. Nicky and Elaine along with another passionate animal over Renee Nijs have got together to organise what sounds like a super party. There will be a free buffet and it is free entrance to the party. There will be live music from JP Bradshaw and karaoke as well, and there will be a charity raffle. You can get more information by calling 971 130 503. Willie’s Bar is on Avenida Notario Alemany No 9, Magaluf.
Every week Pet Project aims to help to rehome an animal or to help and support a refuge or animal shelter here on the island. Pet Project is run by the PR firm Phoenix Media and is supported by the Majorca Daily Bulletin and some of the island’s best professional and amateur photographers.
