REWARDING WORK: APSA kennel manageress Barbara Bennett with Suzie
VOLUNTEERING for the Animal Protection Society Albox is very rewarding work, says the association President Dianne Reid.
APSA is a registered charity which rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes dogs and cats.
Founded in 2003, it has helped over 1,000 dogs, homing locally and in other European countries. Supported by the local community, membership has risen 300 per cent over the last year, patrons receiving monthly newsletters.
APSA relies on volunteers to help at the kennels, walk and foster the dogs. Funds are raised through its shop in Avenida Lepanto in Albox, its Los Llanos market stall and regular fundraising events.
The charity holds a monthly raffle and earlier this month staged a fundraising fashion show. The annual APSA Summer Bash is on June 22, and one of the charity’s regular sponsored walks is planned for October.
Dianne hopes more people will consider helping the charity.
