FINCA SAN Miguel de Salinas recently welcomed some new residents through its doors – nine baby goslings!
The first three were born on March 18, followed by another six ten days later. Of the gaggle, two goslings – Milo and Mila – were a little weak, but after Mona gave them some TLC at home, they returned honking with delight to their brothers and sisters.
Three dogs – Lines, India and Savana – were recently rescued by the finca after a local shelter was full to the brim. India was adopted the very next day by Kirsten and Wolfgang and Renate and her husband fell in love with Savana. Lines has found his forever home in Hamburg, Germany.
The finca hosts an open day on the last Saturday of every month and on Saturday April 29 from 1.00pm, everyone is invited to join its annual Easter party, promising 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 (and the 8 horses, 4 ponies, 9 geese, 6 goats, 4 pigs, 3 dogs, chickens and feral cats!) by giving donations or becoming a food sponsor for €5.00/ €10.00 or more each month.
