Enter this Halloween photo competition and help keep some dogs from going hungry !

Submit a photo of your pooch with a Halloween theme, and the three winning images will receive a copy of Nikki Attree's "Nobody's Poodle" - a wooftastic short novel about Gizmo, a loveable ex-pat pooch uprooted from his home in cold, damp, muddy old England to start a new life in Tenerife.

Forty kilos of dog food will also be donated to the Tierra Blanca dog refuge charity as part of the prize and Nikki is inviting businesses in Tenerife (perhaps pet shops or vets ?) or individuals to match this donation. So far 140 kg has already been pledged to help keep some dogs from going hungry !

Accion-Del-Sol October Fiesta

A Wooftastic time was had by all, at the Aktion-Del-Sol event at the Terrace Bar. What  a great turn out in support of the doggies. Andy was accompanied by a dancing dalmation, young elegant dancers showed off their moves and a cheeky young chap did a wonderful Michael Jackson rendition. There were some great raffle prizes and the children enjoyed the workshop and bouncy castle. The event was finished off with a fashion show.

Thanks to the Terrace Bar in Amarilla Golf for letting accion-del-sol use their venue and the performers for giving their time for free.

The only missing ingredient was Karen Clack who is a very important volunteer at Accion-Del- Sol. We were going to celebrate her 50th birthday at the fiesta but unfortunately Karen was ill and could not join us. We wish her a speed recovery and look forward to celebrate her birthday soon..!

If you would like to visit or assist Accion Del Sol in any way in the future please ring 922778630 for more information or do call in Monday-Friday 3-6pm. The refuge is situated at Poligono De Industrial Estate, Granadilla, Exit 51 on the TF1, directly next to ITER the Parque Eolica where the windmills are .
Accion Del Sol is always looking for people who would like to walk some of the many dogs at the refuge, if you have any spare time and would like to volunteer please do ring or just call in , you would make a few dogs very happy.
