ON Saturday February 25, Finca San Miguel de Salinas held a spectacular carnival style open afternoon.
The event was blessed as what was initially a chilly morning soon turned into a warm, bright afternoon.
The finca welcomed many guests, some of whom even turned up in fancy dress!
Plenty of singing and dancing was enjoyed by all, initiated by Jurgen Rost, who was at his best, singing German and English songs.
Food was aplenty with paella, sausages and homemade cakes and Angela Richards organised the raffle which raised €300.
Snow, a 2-year old dog who had been locked away for his whole life was taken in by the finca and has now been fostered by a local family.
The total raised was an outstanding €1,250.
The next open day will be held on Saturday March 25 from 1pm to 5pm and the finca will host its Easter party on Saturday April 29. Both events promise fun for the whole family. Feel free to bring apples, carrots and tomatoes to feed the farm animals or cat food/ dog food for the cats and dogs.
Finca San Miguel is supported by ‘Happy Animales Spain’, founded by Mona Nowak. Happy Animales Spain is a registered charity committed to the welfare of impoverished and abandoned animals. At Finca San Miguel, neglected animals are taken, provided with any veterinary care they might need along with a lot of cuddles and very often adopted.
The work of Finca San Miguel and Happy Animales Spain is not limited to the day-to-day running of the finca. They regularly inspect animal cruelty in the area, discuss solutions with animal owners and carry out follow-up checks. If there is no other option, they will work to confiscate the animals and take them in at the finca.
You can help Finca San Miguel by giving donations or become a foodsponsor for €5.00/ €10.00 or more each month.
