“Pupular” Puppies!

by petprojectmallorca

Following our mention about the puppies that were born in a storm from last week’s PP, here are some more photos by popular demand! They are a GSD cross and were born in November 2014, so they are now ready to go to good homes via the association Dogs For U. Peanut is the smallest one of the litter a right little cutie full of fun. Storm is the eldest born first. Gina loves to crawl up on your lap for a cuddle. They are all gorgeous and full of fun. You can call Angie Cain on 633471509 for more information and to make an appointment to go and see the puppies.

URGENT HELP NEEDED
PP received this desperate plea from June, the founder of Arc. “Urgent help needed for one of the cats at the Mallorca Arc sanctuary – little Millie. She is around two years old and has gone into depression – she has stopped eating which is affecting her liver – even at the vet’s she is not making any progress – she has been put on a drip to try and help but she needs someone to take her in her arms and cuddle her constantly – she finds life with other cats very difficult and is definitely a people cat.

She needs a very special person to help her and give her the will to live. Please, please if you cannot help her please let other people know, we do not want to lose her and are desperate to find someone who can help her and give her the will to live again.”

We were then sent this update on Monday,

“Our little Millie is beginning to eat and is much more alert now. We have had a couple of enquiries about her but unfortunately from people with other pets. The vet has been trying to socialise her with a selection of different cats, even those still ‘under’ have been put into the room with her but her reaction to any cats has been to hiss and hide, retreating into a corner no matter what until the cat in question has been removed from her little room. Therefore, I am putting out an urgent call to everyone, if you cannot take her can you please share her story and pray that her new owner is out there just waiting to take her into their arms and give her the love and care she so desperately needs right now. THANK YOU” You can get in touch via junehaigh14@yahoo.com or visit www.arc-mallorca.org.

Cat Collaborations

by petprojectmallorca

In August Arc Animales received an email from an elderly couple in Pollensa who had a ‘kitten saturation’ situation and desperately need their help!

They had contacted both Pollensa and Alcudia rescue centres who said they were too full to take any.

It seems the couple had started feeding three female abandoned cats late last year. Then the inevitable happened – first lot of kittens were born on the 6th March and the second on the 31st March (on their terrace) then another litter was born in July somewhere on the finca. They had been feeding them all and got themselves into a situation where they could not cope, in particular financially: in all there were 23 cats and kittens.

In addition the couple were in the procees of selling their house and moving back to the UK but they were desperate that the cats and kittens find new homes and be safe.

There were three adult females (needing castration) 14 older kittens from the 1st and 31st of March (needing castration) (Four of which they would keep themselves)

6 young kittens which had only just started eating solid kitten food (castration will be needed later). This meant that there were three adult cats, nine older kittens of around 6 months and 6 young kittens that needed rehoming. It also meant there were sixteen cats that needed castrating immediately and seven would need castrating in a matter of months.

Arc Animales got in touch with Baldea (who were featured a couple of weeks ago in Pet Project) and working with Ana Aranda Lindsay it was arranged for the cats and older kittens to be castrated in the Baldea mobile vet unit.

17 cats and kittens have been castrated. It’s been a fantastic team effort between Baldea, Katzenzuflucht and Arc Animales.

Arc Animales are now looking for forever homes for the six little kittens – growing by the minute – that were too young to castrate. There are four little boys, Micah, Sima, Malin, Sujay and two girls, Pearl and Pippa. They are all between 8 and 12 weeks old.

Please spread the word about these kittens whose start in life was not the best but, with your help, their futures could be.

You can get in touch with June from Arc Animales by emailing info@arc-mallorca.org or visit http://www.arc-mallorca.org.

10503391_10152233130348507_940199882_oI was hoping that this week’s Pet Project would be a story of cat adoption triumph. Last week these two little guys, who my family have raised by hand from birth, were due to be adopted permanently by another family in Majorca. At the very last minute they dropped out. This means that these two loving, friendly, hilarious balls of fun and fur are in desperate need of a new home. They are almost three months old. They could be apartment cats as they have yet to go outside, and they are litter tray trained. They love to play, and they love each other very much. This is why they should not be separated and they are up for adoption as a pair. They are available for adoption through Cat and Kitten Rescue Mallorca run by Elaine Gill and Nicky Morgan. A big part of the adoption is the undertaking that the adoptees will commit to having the cats castrated when the time comes, and this means that their operations are paid for up front and in advance: the adoptee then receives vouchers which can be redeemed with one of the vets who is participating in the scheme and the animals are castrated. The cost per cat is 55€, plus if possible a donation to the organisation which covers other vet bills, food, kitten milk etc which then enables them to continue to save more little furry lives. And, do you remember the kittens that were found abandoned in a bin? They are now ready for adoption as well. If you can help and seriously want to have some beautiful cats in your life then get in touch with Nicky on 699 532 267. You can also find the organisation on Facebook Cat-and-Kitten-Rescue-Mallorca.10477726_10152233198358507_451343722_o

Harry

by petprojectmallorca

Harry, Prince of Hounds, needs a home.

01 PP harryWith a zest for life and attractive reddish-brown colouring, this dog is on a mission to sniff out a loving family he can call his own. Harry is a Brittany Spaniel around 2-4 years of age.  We´ll never know why he landed up in the stray dog facility in the village of Consell other than he was found wandering scared and all alone, but without a microchip it was inevitable he wouldn´t find his way “back home”.  Quite likely he´s yet another abandoned hunting dog.

Harry is typical of a Brittany; handsome, intelligent, sensitive, willing to please and responsive to a calm and friendly voice.  He´s also athletic and agile, he is great around strangers, peaceful with other dogs and doesn´t like to be left alone.  He´s a prince of a companion dog, wrapped up in a medium-sized package, the size and style you can take everywhere!   Harry will be neutered, micro chipped and vaccinated prior to adoption.

01 PP harry

If you can provide a loving home and are looking for an energetic family dog that thrives on exercise in the great outdoors but is happy to curl up for a cuddle, then Harry might be just the dog for you.

Please make your adoption enquiries to Sherry on 971 14 23 11 or email sheridan@loxinfo.co.th

Christmas is coming.

Christmas is on its way. Yes, we know, it’s come round quickly.  The refuges and animal rescue centres have a very important Christmas message for you this year: please don’t buy an animal as a present this Christmas. Every year during January and February unwanted puppies and kittens who were presented as presents at Christmas and Three Kings are taken to the refuges if they are lucky, or abandoned at the council “kill pounds” if they’re not. If you are serious about getting a new addition to the family then waiting for a few weeks won’t hurt you.

Feeling frio?

Imagine how cold it is at some of the animal refuges and pounds around the island which have outdoor kennels and cages.  If you can open your doors and foster an animal over the winter period then please get in touch with your local centre and ask them which animals need help. Alternatively if you can’t offer a warm place inside your home, then if you have some blankets or duvets you can donate then please do. The island’s refuges need your unwanted blankets! You can take them to the Salvation Army in Son Caliu, or take them directly to your local refuge.

Urgent Appeal – Centro Canino

by petprojectmallorca

This week’s Pet Project is an urgent appeal. The good people at the Centro Canino are facing another crisis. They have to find temporary foster homes (or better still, permanent, but if you can help out for a short period of time then please do) for at least fifteen of their dogs by this coming Monday 26th August! They have a dispute over the amount of dogs they are allowed to keep at the centre and everyone (lawyers and politicians) who can help them are away for their summer holidays!

If you can help with a temporary safe house for one of their pooches whilst they straighten things out with the powers that be in Palma then they would be very happy to hear from you! You can see more information about the centre at their website http://www.centrocaninointernacional.org. The centre is in Es Pil Lari just outside of Palma and they are open from 10am until 2pm Monday to Saturday. Here are a couple of their dogs, but they have many more that need help. You can also call Maria on 68950052 and 971261149

LurLur is a very sweet little female dog. She’s just a year old and is not yet spayed. She was very nervous about people when she first came to live at the Centre but now she is recovering well and is very affectionate. She also gets on very well with cats.

Lolo is a very friendly fella, who loves to be with people. LoloHe has been in and out of the rescue centre over the course of his life, not because he has behavioural problems but because his adoptive families have broken up. He is neutered and gets on very well with cats.
