Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - Social Scene -

By Alex Watkins THE AN­NUAL Fun Dog Show at Finca Vil­la­martín an­i­mal sanc­tu­ary was on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27.

The event was or­gan­ised by the non-profit as­so­ci­a­tion Happy An­i­males Ori­huela, which was founded by Mona Nowak to man­age the sanc­tu­ary. It raised €400 to­wards the ex­penses of look­ing af­ter the circa-50 an­i­mals that live there.

“It was nice to see old and new faces,” said vol­un­teer Sol Mulder.

“All the dogs who en­tered the Fun Dog Show were lovely; the jury, Clau­dia, Monique and I had to make de­ci­sions... but in the end ev­ery dog went home with a tro­phy and treats. The over­all win­ner was Jack, a beau­ti­ful black Labrador.

“We would like to thank San Miguel Bowls Club, Cheers bar­restau­rant, Rocky’s Arena, Rit­u­als, Yves Rocher, Yvonne, Ron, Monique and Ron­ald for their spon­sor­ship and do­na­tions. “And a big thank you to An­gela Richards and Carla Zitchen­bacher, who came to help us with the raf­fle, and to all the sup­port­ers who found the way to the Finca.”

Finca Vil­la­martín cur­rently houses four ponies, seven horses, eight goats, 13 geese, Daisy and Don­ald the ducks, five pigs, two fer­rets, two dogs and about 20 cats.

Vol­un­teers for the open days, help with re­pairs, food spon­sors, long term spon­sors, cake mak­ers and raf­fle prizes are all very wel­come.
