Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th May 2012
Calling all animal lovers!
THE SPA NEEDS YOU!
The SPA (Société Protectrice des Animaux) Animal Refuge at Torreilles, set in green countryside in the Roussillon plain, is opening its doors to the public on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th May in an effort to encourage adoption after the summer holidays, when so many animals are abandoned.
The Refuge will be open from 10 am to 6pm non-stop and the public can visit and view the cats and dogs for adoption.
The SPA personnel and voluntary workers will be present to help you choose the companion most adapted to your lifestyle. You’ll also get to know the dogs better when you see them in the dog parade.
This is also about fundraising as well as adoption so if you can’t adopt, but have a few euros to contribute, that will also be very welcome.
Lisa, an English speaker, will be present for anyone who needs help with the language or has questions about the SPA.
Adopting an animal is a generous act but needs to be carefully considered. Come to Torreilles this weekend to spend a pleasant day in the country and perhaps find the animal companion of your choice!
All these abandoned animals need you and are just waiting to give you their love and affection. You can equally help the animal cause by signing a petition, putting your name down for voluntary work or buying a delicious crêpe at the drinks stand.
Help us make of this weekend a springtime festival of adoption through your presence and generosity!
Aim to get there at 10H30 for the ‘Rando dog’, a communal dog walk where you can either walk your own dog or give one of the SPA doggy guests some much needed exercise and affection.
THE ANIMAL REFUGE IIS DESPERATELY IN NEED OF FRIENDS TO HELP BOTH FINANCIALLY, WITH ADOPTION, AND WITH VOLUNTEER WORK. THEY ALSO NEED BLANKETS, OLD JUMPERS, BALLS, TOYS FOR DOGS AND CATS……
