VOLUNTEERS braved the chilly waters at Mojacar Playa on New Year’s Day morning for a fundraising dip in the sea to benefit the PAWS-PATAS animal charity.

Organised by Ann and Brad Swift, this year’s event was all about helping PAWS-PATAS to raise enough cash to build a much-needed quarantine unit at the charity’s shelter located between Los Gallardos and Turre.
PAWS-PATAS executive committee member Chrissie Cremore has told the Euro Weekly News.
“Unfortunately, when infected puppies are dumped at the gates we have been forced to close the shelter because parvovirus is an incredibly contagious disease with devastating symptoms”, Chrissie explained.
“The quarantine unit will help prevent a total ‘lock down’, which of course is very distressing for the animals and the volunteers.”
