THE WEATHER wasn’t looking so great as Finca San Miguel de Salinas held their monthly open day and Easter party on Saturday April 29.
But alas, the rain held off and guests, volunteers and animals alike enjoyed an afternoon with performances from Jurgen Rost and Bernd Mann and a delicious barbecue.
The finca expressed their greatest thanks to Eurofoods and Eelco Venema for their generous donation by the way of burgers and rolls for the barbecue and to the volunteers for their tremendous efforts in baking an array of cakes.
Mark Poolton Jones from Ole International attended the open day with a donation of €200 which he had collected amongst his colleagues which was very gratefully received and Angela Richard made an Easter basket, raising €134 for the finca.
The finca will hold a flea market event on Sunday June 4 between 12.00pm and 6.00pm and invite everyone along to hunt down a bargain.
Finca San Miguel de Salinas 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 the finca, 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 de Salinas 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 the finca (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.
