Benny needs a new home.
Benny (2)He is a 6 year old pure breed Podenco Ibicenco (Spanish greyhound) neutered male.
He has always been healthy and is in very good physical condition. Podenco´s are the only known breed that are inherently resistant to Leishmania!  He measures 70cm to his shoulder and weighs around 25 kg. His fur is white with brown around both ears and one eye. Benny loves people and children and has a bright nature, loves being petted and is very obedient and quiet in the house. He loves SONY DSCwalks in the great outdoors but, since he has strong hunting instincts, usually needs to stay on the lead. He would be best suited to a family with no other animals or perhaps with another large dog.  You can get more information from Calvia Vet Anna Pink Dr. Anna Pink BSc MRCVS Col. 820 on tel. 971695108, 634524440 or contact them through their website www.calviavet.com

Lend a hand at SOS Animales

This week I popped over to see Maxi Lange and the other volunteers at SOS Animales in Calvia. The visiting hours there are 10am to 12.30pm, and from 4pm to 6pm for the dogs, and 6pm to 7pm for the cats. The refuge takes the overflow from the local pound and in Maxi’s words “We’re always full with dogs”. The refuge is now also preparing for kitten season and they are looking for donations of Royal Canin kitten food. They try to feed the baby animals the same brand throughout the beginning of their lives as if you switch from one brand to another then it can cause some nasty sore tummies! And we certainly don’t want that to happen, yuck!

The other things they are after are: transport boxes for the animals, good quality cat food for the adults who are poorly, and dried cat food for the street cats (Maxi recommends the Mercadona “Compi” dried biscuits, “The cats don’t want to eat the Eroski brand, I don’t know why”). And they are always open to people sticking their hand up and volunteering, like Lisa and Millie in the photo who were there on their first day and having fun taking the dogs for walks around Calvia, (or it could have been the dogs taking them for walks…).

You can get in touch with Maxi on 670367485 or email her on mxlange@gmail.com.
The dogs pictured are just a small selection of the animals who are looking for a home. Scooby is used to being in a family and should be with a family, he is very chilled out and loving. Rogur is an adult Airedale with lots of puppyish energy, the Shar Peis Mink and Mina are both fun dogs to spend time with, Bruno needs to be on his own in a relationship, he is very much a one person dog, and Tango just wants to be loved! Contact the shelter or Maxi for more information.

There are plenty of dogs waiting for a walk.
