    Little Lola

    Little Lola was wandering the streets of Los Alcázares until some very kind people took her to the vet, who cleaned her of fleas and ticks, promising to try to re-home her, so they helped by taking Lola home until a new home could be found for her. To their surprise, one morning, Lola gave birth to 5 puppies and they knew they would need to keep her for at least 6 weeks. The vet managed to find homes for the puppies but not for Lola! She is about 16 months old and an absolute darling. Her rescuers cannot keep her: one is working full-time and his partner is frequently…

    Helping Albert

    Little Albert is about 3 months old and was found wandering in the road, absolutely covered in ticks. Luckily for him, he was rescued by Los Infiernos Perrera and was taken straight to the vet. He was given a thorough check and an injection to rid him of those nasty, harmful ticks. The ticks really taken their toll on Albert and he was very thin and weak, so a kind LIPS (Los Infiernos Perrera Supporters) volunteer took him home to give him some special care. Albert is now tick-free (but with some damage to his little ears) and is eating (he loves chicken), but he is not out of the…
