PAWS-PATAS are raising funds for amazing animal causes in Spain

PERFECT: The sun shone on the annual PAWS-PATAS Christmas Fayre

HUNDREDS turned out for the PAWS-PATAS annual Christmas Fayre.
Shoppers were spoilt for choice, with stalls offering hand-made crafts, clothes, food and drink. Lady Ellen and Jack Law completed the festive atmosphere with a two-hour musical set.
The fayre raised €1,574.87, which goes to the PAWS-PATAS Trapping – Neutering – Returning (TNR) campaign for local feral cat colonies. The charity says this amount will stop hundreds of thousands of kittens being born over the next decade.
PAWS-PATAS reported that appeals following the flooding of the animal shelter have raised almost €4,800, which will go towards the major plans the charity has for cementing some of the kennels, making electrics safe and enhancing the drainage system.
They still need a further €5,000.
PAWS-PATAS receives no government help and survives thanks to people who donate items to their fundraising outlets or who donate money directly.
They are always in need of volunteer help in all areas, be it at the shelter, in the outlets, administration (which can be done from home), driving, etc. For more information visit the website or email [email protected]
