We are a registered charity rescuing and re-homing abandoned cats and dogs. Many animals arriving at our shelter have been abused, are sick, are starving, and some are only hours away from death. Animals leaving our shelter go to live in caring, loving homes, never again to be maltreated or go hungry.
This takes a lot of hard work and a great deal of money. Our Events, our Boutique and Donations are our major sources of income, providing money that allows us:
• To RESCUE animals in danger
• To CARE for them by providing a proper diet, veterinary care, and safe, comfortable, dry accommodation
• To REHOME them in forever homes, so they can get on with enjoying the rest of their lives
We are committed to our Mission to rescue, care and rehome. SCAN is constantly working to improve our ability to respond to the many challenges of animal rescue here in Spain. We work closely with the local authorities, the police and the local vets. Everyone involved is focussed on the welfare and Care of Animals in Need.
It takes a lot to run SCAN. Our fundraising initiatives ensure we can keep the promise we make to each animal the day they arrive at the centre, “We Will Take Care of You.”
Our Events include quizzes, race nights, our famous BBQ’s, musical and theatrical entertainments and fashion shows. These take a lot of organising and a team on the ground to make sure they run to plan. We are always on the lookout for new ideas and for performers who will loan their talents for an afternoon or evening. Contact us if you can help us find new items for our programme or to join the Events Team. It’s fun.
As well as providing critical funds for SCAN our Events raise awareness of our charity and its objectives, targeting the local community, local businesses and animal lovers across the Costa Blanca.
Our Events programme can be found here and on FACEBOOK. You can help by becoming a member. Click here. You will receive regular newsletters and details of forthcoming Events, but if the thought of yet more emails horrifies, you can opt out of the mailing programme.
