URGENT APPEAL: Big-hearted expats sought to save 20 Costa Blanca dogs from ‘uncertain future’


AN urgent appeal has gone out to save 20 dogs as a Costa Blanca charity faces losing it’s home.

Pet charity, APAH, of Pilar de Horadada, is pleading with animal lovers to help house the dogs, many of which are puppies.

IN NEED OF A NEW HOME: Can you foster a dog like this?

If they are not given homes soon, they will be forced to take them to the municipal dog pound, where it is likely they will be put down.

It comes after the banks insisted the charity must leave the rented property after a four year dispute.

UNCERTAIN FUTURE: Charity just doesn’t know what lies ahead

The problem arose when the Spanish owner of the property failed to pay his mortgage and the house was repossessed.

“We need to find people that are willing to foster dogs and give them a good home,” pleaded president Yvonne Colby, who took over the charity in 2006.

“Our solicitors have spent four years trying to reason with the owner, and then the banks, but it’s been neglected and now it’s deemed unsuitable for animals”.

She continued: “We offered to buy the place, but the banks asked for €195,000 when it was valued at just €80,000.”
