Staff at the ADANA Perrera in Parque de Los Pedregales, Estepona, thought they had seen it all. Emaciated and ill-treated dogs and puppies left in bins for the compactor to deal with are sadly all too common occurrences for the workers at the ‘perrera’ which now shelters two hundred abandoned dogs.
But when Helen Ellis and Fernando Gil arrived early on Monday morning they found that the hose connecting ADANA to the water supply in the hills above the shelter had been severed and the connector removed, thus cutting off water for drinking and cleaning.
Beer cans and other detritus were found scattered around the site of the damaged pipe.
“I am so angry,” said Administrator Helen Ellis. ‘To do something like this in the high temperatures we are experiencing is sheer stupidity. It is nothing other than mindless vandalism’.
Staff and volunteers set to work repairing the pipe and as a temporary stop gap made the journey down the rough track to fetch drinking water for the dogs.
