I was wondering if anyone knew an animal rescue for cats. I have found 5 about 2 week old kittens that need good homes and I am unable to provide that. If anyone knows any information my emails are as followed: ivana.flores@eu.navy.mil or K4waiik1tten@live.com I am currently in the Rota, Spain area.

I thought this would be of interest to all of us who aren't too keen on putting chemicals on our animals.Diatomaceous earth (DE) works on dogs or cats even small puppies and kittens, although please make sure you don't use the one they put in swimming pools you need NATURAL diatomaceous earth! It is made from the tiny skeletons of algae and comes in powder form. You put the powder on your pets and your soft furnishings and then the fleas die from dehydration. You can get this from garden supply centers and natural health stores apparently, although I haven't tried to find it here yet.

We are driving from the Dordogne to the south coast of Spain taking two days and need to stay overnight somewhere. Has anyone done this and can suggest a motel chain which will allow a dog in th room? Formula 1 does, but the ones in Madrid are just too far for the first day's drive so we are looking for a similar alternative . Thanks

Dear all,There has been a recent increase in pet theft in the area Torrequebrada to Torremuelle. We do advice pet owners not to leave their pets unattended. This activity is most likely NOT only common in this area so where ever you might be on the Costa del Sol be warned. We´ve heard quite a few reports of especially breed dogs, being snatched from outside supermarkets, as well as from the gardens of their family. Be extra careful and do not leave your animals unattended and within reach of strangers as it seems it has become a lucrative "business" kidnap or steal pets.* Do not leave your pet unattended in public spaces, or within reach of strangers.* Do ensure that your pet is micro chipped, and also notify your vet so you flag your pet as stolen.* Also notify the police if theft is the likely cause of your pet´s disappearance.Please note that if your pet actually has escaped and does not have a microchip it will most likely be put to sleep by your local "municipal" pen within 10 business days or less if captured by a dog/cat catcher. Do contact your local animal pen as quickly as possible to avoid loss of life of a dear one. Even if your pet is micro chipped it is most likely it will be put to sleep if the municipal pen cannot reach you within "reasonable time".Henryhttp://pets.pymatique.com/ -- Please help us aid animals in need.

Hi,My wife and I moved from US to Paris for 6 months with our dog. We went through a hassle in order to get him here with all the requirements and paperwork. I am wondering if now that he has been living in France can we just bring him across to Spain? We are using a rental car to travel across so would anyone be stopping us to check anyways? Let me know your thoughts on this as I am curious to know if I need to spend like 300 euro on a pet passport. Also if anyone knows if the France outlet plug will work in Spain I am in need of that information as well.Blake

Hi All We are a middle aged couple who have decided to take a year out of the humdrum life of work and travel a bit before the insurance gets too high and the body can't take it anymore! We are travelling around in a van with our lovely friendly dog called Sam. For the last two months we have been staying in the Alps doing some skiing and walking, what fun. But now the snow is going we plan to leave too and travel through France and in to Spain. We plan to do a lot of walking mainly around the Pyrennees , Southern France, into Andalucia. I got to thinking that maybe we could find places to stay by offering ourselves as pet sitters or house minders in these areas. We are very trustworthy and respectful of others and their property. My partner Andy is a wooden boat builder and is very good at woodwork so if you have anything that needs doing he is your man. We are happy to meet people first to see if a house sit is possible. We have nothing booked at the time of writing and posting this ad so would be happy to accommodate those last minute decisions. We are leaving the Alps around the 2nd April so if you require our services please email me on chipswitheverything@hotmail.co.uk or call 0033 (0)678206740 Many thanks Regards Lou

We are looking to give a good home to a German Sheppard, we would like one that is not to old but not a young puppy. We have a 5yr old so would need one that we could know its back ground and know that the dog is ok with children. We can provide a loving home and if you are in the position that for what ever reason you can no longer keep your dog PLEASE do get in touch. Thank you

I am hoping to take over an existing dog grooming salon shortly, 30 mins from Malaga heading towards Marbella. It has an existing client base. I am a City & Guilds qualified groomer and just wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts or advise regarding this type of business and if there is a demand. We will be moving from the UK to do this - so it is a big step for my family and I.Any feedback will be most welcome.

As a joint effort the nice lasses and lads at http://www.spanimal.org/ has made this web site available to everyone who's working to get animals adopted in Spain. Short introductionWhat is Spanimal.org? Spanimal.org is a bilingual (Spanish version coming shortly, translation volunteers please contact us), online database which has been created to fulfill the urgent need for a central animal adoption network to serve all animal welfare organisations in Spain. With the growth of the internet in Spain, many animal welfare organisations and individuals have embraced the medium both to promote the aims of their organisation and to locate homes for some of Spain's unwanted domestic pets. Unfortunately, due to financial constraints, most of these organisations and individuals have lacked the resources to develop an automated online animal database and instead, have had to rely on web-savy volunteers to develop basic web sites, frequently having to work within the constraints of free web space provided by internet service providers. Through the support of TEFL.com, Spanimal.org has developed a state-of-the-art database adoption system which will be available free of charge to all organisations and individuals connected with animal welfare in Spain. We have no plans to accept advertising at Spanimal.org and the site will remain free to all. How Spanimal.org will work for you... To enable us to maintain a completely free service, the Spanimal.org system is totally automated. If you are an animal welfare organisation or an individual caring for some of Spain's stray animal population (there is no need for you to be a registered charity), all you need to do is register with us at www.spanimal.org/org/reg.html. You will be issued with your unique password to enable you to access your account. All you will then need is a digital camera and an internet connection to enable you to upload photographs of the animals in your care along with the relevant information to your Spanimal.org account. As our database is in "real-time", your photographs and data will be published online instantly. Individuals seeking to adopt a pet, will simply browse the online database for animal welfare centres and animal carers in their locality. They will then make contact with the adoption centre either using the Spanimal.org online enquiry form or by telephone. For privacy, e-mail addresses will not be published. How is Spanimal.org promoted? The Spanimal.org resource is promoted extensively via national and international animal welfare websites, Spain tourism and expatriate websites. In addition, we will be publishing a free newsletter featuring photographs and information on the latest animals added to the database. Please visit www.spanimal.org for more information. And always please do consider adopting and fostering an animal before you buy an animal. There are so many animals in Spain and world-wide who are looking for a new home.
