Can anyone recommend someone in the Jalon Valley or surrounding area who looks after dogs in their home please? Not kennels. Would just be for one well behaved dog.

Hi can anyone help? I am getting desperate now, there has been a cat up a 35 ft pine tree in my garden in Moraira for 4 days now. It cant get down. It is so distressing to see it. I understand that cats can go without food for a while but not water, and with this warm weather it is probably worse. It is a feral cat and very nervous so I know there is no way anyone could go up there and bring it down. I am putting some sheets about waist height up round the tree today held with bungie ties in case it goes unconscious and falls. Any thoughts would be useful. Thanks

Does anyone know or walk their dog on dog friendly beaches this time of year between Denia and Altea please? I see that the beaches at Calpe do not allow dogs at any time. Thanks.

Hi, I have recently found a beautiful Labrador on the campo near to Lo Crispin ( Algorfa ), she is about 7 months old and a really beautiful and affectionate dog, unfortunately I already have 2 dogs and although they all get along there really is no way that I can keep her. If you know of anybody that has lost her or anybody that is willing to Re-Home her then please get in touch.

Sabrina (2 year old female Yorkshire Terrier Black/Silver/Tan and microchipped) has been missing since Friday 2nd of September and despite every effort since then by ourselves and the fantastic help and support of our many friends on Facebook, we have not been able to find her. We have felt for over 2 weeks now that Sabrina is being cared for by someone in Alfaz. From information we received, it seems "probable" that Sabrina is with a Spanish woman in Alfaz called Sandra. She seems reluctant to hand her over to a vet or the dog pound. We hope that we can get lucky and spot her out with Sabrina soon. Thanks again for all your help. 600274002 http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/s320x320/293555_2267010007290_1609745947_2322784_551558360_n.jpg Above link picture of Sabrina

Our cat Charlie has been missing since late evening 14th September 2011. He is a male tabby, grey and black, about 5/6 years old, medium in size, he is castrated but no microchip and he has a limp when he walks from a previous injury. He went missing between Javea and Benitachell, Alicante, not far from the Bowls Club 'Inn On The Green' and the Bacchus Restaurant. Please check garages, outbuildings, garages etc. If anyone has any information or thinks they might have seen him somewhere please contact me on 666965864 or email deniseburton76@hotmail.com. Many thanks.

Hi there, I'm looking to move to Jalon Valley area very soon and want to start my own cattery. I already run a cat sitting business in the UK and am RSPCA trained at our local shelter. I have also fostered for the Cats Protection League here in the UK and have eight rescue cats of my own. Although I am a qualified primary school teacher, I would like to concentrate on starting the cattery, as I know there are many expats out there who have acquired a cat and are stuck when they wish to return home. I have seen a cattery business in Costa Blanca and wasn't very impressed with the standard of accommodation offered.So please help me by letting me know if you think there will be a need for my cattery, if you are a cat owner, what do you do when you go away and perhaps let me know if you already use a good cattery in the Jalon Valley area. Any ideas or support that you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Also if you run a shelter please let me know, I would like to make contact with as many people in the area as possible.many thanksDebbie dlavelle@virginmedia.com

I saw a cat being run over. The driver did not stop. I was driving the other way at the time and in a rush to get to the Airport so I did not stop. I think the cat was killed. I wondered if it was illegal to not stop and report. Mike

Can anyone tell me the rules for taking your dog in the car here? I know you see many dogs sitting where they like in cars, but what is considered correct legally?

British Embassy in Madrid New rules will make it easier and cheaper to take pets to the United Kingdom Dog and cat owners will find it cheaper and easier to travel to the UK with their pets when new rules are introduced at the start of next year. The UK will harmonise its pet movement rules with the rest of the European Union from 1 January 2012, bringing the UK's Pet Travel Scheme into line with the most recent science. The UK will maintain its high level of protection against animal diseases after the changes, which have the potential to save pet owners around £7 million in fees. Forcing pets to spend six months in quarantine, a practice dating from the 1800s, is no longer necessary because of vastly improved rabies vaccines and treatments. All pets will still need to be vaccinated against rabies. Pets from the EU will no longer need a blood test and will only have to wait 21 days before they travel. The changes will ensure the risk of rabies coming to the UK remains extremely low. It's estimated that the new rules mean there would be one case of rabies in a pet in the UK once every 211 years, with the possibility of a person dying from rabies obtained from a pet once in every 21,000 years. The Health Protection Agency considers Spain a 'no risk' country for rabies. Environment Secretary, Caroline Spelman, said: "The UK's quarantine system was designed to combat the threat of rabies in the 19th century and has now been left far behind by scientific advances. What is needed is a simpler, evidence-based system for protecting the UK from rabies which recognises the actual risk to pets and pet owners. The EU's pet movement scheme has been working very well for nearly a decade, and it makes sense for us to have similar rules." Chief Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, said: "Rabies is a very serious human disease and the rabies-free status of the UK must be protected. The EU pet travel rules have been successful in preventing any cases of rabies occurring in legally moved pets since the scheme started, so harmonising the UK's rules with those of the EU will make it easier for those who wish to travel with their pets." The UK will continue to protect the public against the risk of serious exotic tapeworm infections and is pressing to retain tapeworm controls for pets entering the UK. The government has been discussing with the European Commission the most appropriate form of tapeworm controls for dogs, to ensure the UK continues to be protected from Echinococcus multilocularis. The Commission has recently indicated that its proposals, expected shortly, would enable the UK and other tapeworm-free countries to retain tapeworm controls, with a requirement that animals be treated between one and five days before returning to the UK. Dog tapeworm is common in southern Spain. Tick treatment for pet animals returning to the UK will no longer be required. All pet owners travelling abroad with their animals should discuss with their vets the use of treatments, including those designed to control ticks as part of good animal health practice. Detailed information on what pet owners and vets need to do before bringing a pet to the UK can be found at http://www.defra.gov.uk/wildlife-pets/pets/travel or obtained from the UK helpline +44 (0)870 241 1710. Information in Spanish can be found on the British Embassy website at http://ukinspain.fco.gov.uk/...h-animals Entry rules for pets entering the UK from the EU: What has to be done Now From 1 January 2012 Microchip Yes Yes Rabies vaccination Yes Yes Documentation (pet passport or third country certificate) Yes Yes Blood test (dogs and cats) Yes No Pre-entry waiting period Yes Yes Length of waiting period before entry to the UK 6 months from date sample taken for blood test 21 days after vaccination against rabies Tick treatment Yes (24-48 hours before embarkation) No Tapeworm treatment Yes (as for ticks) Under consideration at European level
