PAWS-PATAS shelter appeal

FLOODED: Volunteers had to move the dogs to kennels which were at least dry.

PAWS-PATAS is appealing for donations to renovate the charity’s animal shelter after last weekend’s violent storms left it badly damaged.

The charity’s on-site volunteers and other regulars made a stoic and brave attempt at trying to keep the dogs out of the water as the storm raged, moving them into other kennels which were not perfect but at least dry. Meanwhile the road to the shelter was ripped apart and completely disappeared, and the charity says major works will be needed to repair it.

PAWS-PATAS says it now desperately needs money to renovate the shelter, saying even concreting some of the kennels would make a difference.
