A MASSIVE storm which battered the Costa Almeria at the weekend left the PAWS-PATAS animal shelter badly damaged.
The road to the shelter was ripped apart and completely disappeared, and the charity says major works will be necessary to rebuild it.
The shelter premises were flooded, and the on-site volunteers, along with other regulars, did what they could to try and keep the dogs warm, dry and safe, moving them into kennels which they said although not ideal, were at least not leaking.
The charity is now appealing for financial assistance from the public to help renovate the shelter, which is located between Turre and Los Gallardos.
