Costa Blanca people power prevents puppies perishing


HALF the dogs threatened with an ‘unknown future’ from the closure of a Costa Blanca refuge, have been re-homed after an Olive Press campaign.

AT RISK: Two of the puppies at APAH

It comes after our launch issue reported that the APAH charity, in Pilar de Horadada, was being threatened with closure after eight years in business.

A four-year long dispute with the property owner, eventually revealed he had not been paying the mortgage – despite APAH paying rent.

Yvonne Colby, who took over the charity as president in 2006, confirmed, “After our plea two weeks ago, we’re delighted to say that half the dogs now have stable, safe homes.”

She added: “We still need to rehouse the remaining ten, as we’re so unsure exactly what will happen to them if they’re taken away.”

Contact APAH urgently on 630 422 563 and 616 210 850 or go to http://apahrescue.org/
