Desperate dogs
The Northwest Tenerife animal protection association based in Icod has made a desperate plea for help.

02.04.2013 - Over 100 dogs are housed in their refuges, a number which is growing daily due to the rise in abandonments. The APANOT refuge for example survives solely on donations and the group has recently launched an appeal for dog food. Volunteers from the organisation are currently running a campaign to enable the public to contribute food in as easy a way as possible. Last year they collected over three tons of food which has kept the refuge going over the last few months. However, supplies are now running out and it is hoped that this latest campaign will help stock the larders once again. The first step being taken at the beginning of the month when the public were invited to drop bags of cat and dog food at various points around the island. Like other organisation of their ilk, APANOT is run by volunteers who make a great effort to rehome the animals, and many abandoned dogs and cats from the north of Tenerife have found new homes in places as far afield as Finland, Switzerland and Germany. However, until that point they have to be cared for and fed. If you would like to make a donation you can call Fernando Prez Len on 600 740 271 or email: Alternatively you can drop food into the Island Connections office (the address is at the foot of page 2) and we will ensure it is delivered to Icod.
