PAD Animal Charity Open Day & Paella

On Sunday 7th November, the Shelter Carretera Cerro del Aguila in Mijas will be holding a charity open day with Paella and tapas in aid of their PAD animal charity.

About PAD:

PAD was founded in 1996 with the objective of sheltering and then finding new homes for abandoned dogs and cats and in 2 years sufficient funds had been raised to build a shelter on rented land. In these 2 years nearly 500 animals were adopted but the shelter only had space for 12 dogs and 10 cats.

However, early in 2001, a piece of land with a partly built house next to the shelter became available and after the fortunate purchase with the help of very kind people, the next 12 months were spent clearing the land and finishing the building which sadly used up the remaining funds. Luckily though, along came Carmen de Vigny, who offered the funds to build a new cat shelter and Carmen officially opened the new shelter on the 1st September, 2002. They are now housing over 200 feline guests!

While helping the animals, PAD believes that the animals often help people too – especially in times of loneliness and loss. Animals can be fostered or cared for permanently.

PAD is a registered charity and organises many fund-raising events throughout the year.
