Please vote for Axarquia Animal Rescue

Postby Marina » Thu Sep 12, 2013 9:39 am

I would like to ask you all to please take a couple of minutes to vote for Axarquia Animal Rescue in the Pride of Marbella Awards.
http://prideofmarbella.com/?page_id=71

This charity is entirely made up of volunteers and they do amazing work helping abandoned and abused animals. AAR don't have premises,but rely on foster carers to get the animals to a place of safety while searching for forever homes. In an emergency, animals are put into local kennels.

Funds are raised through donations, events, car boot sales and a number of events that take place throughout the year. The volunteers never stop working. (I know this as I've recently joined the committee.)

The vet bills and kennel bills normally come to around €2000 per month, but in August,due to the high number of animals abandoned, the bill more than doubled!

Winning the award would bring in much needed publicity which would not only help raise the profile of the charity, but could also bring in donations and offers of much needed homes for the animals.

You can see the AAR facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/groups/Axarquia.animalrescue/ and their website here http://www.axarquianimalrescue.com/

Please vote, we need and appreciate every single vote. Thank you for reading.

Well worth voting for these amazing people - they are 100% committed to looking after the unwanted and ill-treated animals, please help them to get this award. I have voted and commented although I am sure just a vote would help if you don't personally know of all the work they do on behalf of the animals of the Axarquia.

Voted as I know how hard you all work. :thumbup: Have to say I have been canvassing family and friends to vote for a couple of more local animal organisations who we continue to support in Marbella and Mijas.

They have my vote.

On the questionaire they asked why I was recommending them.

A simple answer - because they save the lives of poor animals - what other reasons do you need.

Does anyone know who is behind the Marbella Pride? Contact gives a place in Calahonda.

Dave Maloney and his partner Alex. Can't remember Alex's surname. I think they are from Mijas.

It's their first event apparently. The voting should have finished last Monday but they have extended it!
Part of the ticket sales will go towards supporting the Pink Ribbon charity (Breast cancer), Blue Ribbon (Prostate cancer) and a handicapped child.

AAR would obviously love to win, but even if we don't, the publicity should be marvelous and will hopefully result in more donations and homes for the animals. The downside is that we'll probably get more animals dumped on us!

I'm a little concerned about the venue. All we know is that it is at Funny Beach.

Just need to find a blooming dress, shoes and bag now!

I wondered about the choice of Funny Beach :? There used to be just a basic chiringuito but it is a few years since I was there. Perhaps it has changed. Easy to find as it's directly off the A-7 just before the entrance to Marbella.

I thought of nominating Sid for special recognition owing to his brilliant work with the Tax stuff and other things but I thought he may kill me for obliging him to drive all that way :lol:
