MEMBERS of Javea Connect have pulled together to help the plight of APROP.
APROP (Protectorad’animals de Pego) is an entirely volunteer-run cats and dogs shelter amongst the orange groves in Pego.
The shelter, set over 2,750 square metres, is home to some 40 dogs and over 40 cats, with these figures rising at an alarming rate.
APROP was previously LAPS and was taken over in March 2016 by a group of multi-national volunteers committed to the welfare of impoverished and abandoned animals. At APROP, neglected cats and dogs are taken in, provided with any veterinary care they might need and given hope for a better day.
The shelteris in desperate need of as much help as it can get as it prepares for the upcoming winter months.
Thanks to members of Javea Connect, €600 was raised last week, which was put towards the purchase of building supplies such as roofing panels and fencing.
Members also joined APROP superstar Derek Lundgren who has worked tirelessly day-in, day-out to erect stronger structures that can withstand the elements and keep the animals safe.
APROP is appealing to residents across the Marina Alta to help in any way they can, be it donating funds, time (with the animals or laboring on site) or resources such as unwanted building supplies.
