🐾 WHEN I WOKE UP TODAY, I HAD TO PINCH MYSELF!! 🐾As you all know, we had a fantastic year for rehoming dogs in 2020, largely due to our friendship with Pam McLeod and our partnership with her rescue organisation, Podencos in Need Scotland - PINS. Well, yesterday, Pam did a lovely thing by introducing me to Kerry Lawrence who founded and runs two amazing rescue groups, Greyhound Protection Uk (Formally Birmingham Greyhound Protection) and the trail blazing group, Candy Cane Rescue. Kerry has taken on, not only the racing industry but has been rescuing dogs from the Chinese meat trade, Chinese underground racing and from countries with poor animal welfare. I’ve “followed” Kerry for a long time and her energy is staggering. She’s been responsible for finding homes for so many dogs in countries all over the world.So now, Kerry has joined us too and along with Linn Elizabeth Ørnulfsdatter and Marianne Anita of Scandinavian Dog Rescue in Spain our dogs now have a future. Thank you all for joining the Paradise family and giving our dogs hope. In the next month between our partners and us, a massive SIXTEEN DOGS will be leaving us for their new homes! ...

🐾WHAT A WHIRLWIND OF A DAY IT’S BEEN!🐾Up in the dark, with the crate in the car, layers of thermals on and away we go! Denise Roe and I were off on a mission. This was the same journey I’d planned for last week but of course, we were stopped by the snow. We were off to collect a precious cargo of two scared little Podencos whose owner had died. As a hunter he’d kept these little dogs on chains and luckily they’d been taken in by Miryam Tomas in Albacete.We arranged to meet our contacts up on the Albacete border as our complication of course was the fact that we’re not allowed to drive out of the region of Valencia. There was a nice calm transfer into my car and little Diana and Pinto were safely on their way back to Paradise and ultimately a better life in the safe hands of our partners, PINS. ...

🐾 THERE ARE SOME VERY PRIVILEGED DOGS AT PARADISE!🐾They’re the ones that for one reason or other start off their Paradise life in Colleen’s kitchen. They’ll have had some sort of problem that needs close attention, Epilepsy, Leish, amputees, you name it and some become fit enough to go into the kennels, others graduate to the living room along with some that are there just because Colleen and Peter love them. 17 dogs, all gorgeous who have the run of the gardens once cleaning is over.Meet Smokey. He’s a complete scoundrel, totally untrustworthy, a thief but adorable with it. Colleen’s hoping that this weeks castration might have some effect. We’ll see! 😆 He likes to know what’s going on, hence the hole he’s made next to the dangerous dog sign on our gate. He’s not very convincing 😂 Thanks Jill Martin-Blake for today’s photo of him resting his “operation site” on the new sofa. One of a kind is our Smokey 😍 ... See MoreSee Less

🆘🆘 🆄🆁🅶🅴🅽🆃 🅄🅁🄶🄴🄽🅃 🆄🆁🅶🅴🅽🆃 🅄🅁🄶🄴🄽🅃 🆄🆁🅶🅴🅽🆃 🆘🆘LAST NIGHT, THE TEMPERATURE AT THE KENNELS DROPPED TO MINUS 2 DEGREES!!!!This morning, Colleen had to break the ice in the water bowls, windows are iced over and our beautiful dogs are huddled together trying to keep warm.WE’RE DESPERATE FOR BLANKETS, RUGS, CARPETS AND DOG COATS. We’re apparently going through the coldest spell in 50 years!We have Julie Hills in UK with a shed load of British Airways blankets for us but just can’t find any transport to bring them over, we’ve got some lovely coats in Norway which can’t get to us till February as they’re in a Covid area so this is now a desperate plea. We have sheets which are great in the summer but freeze in the winter, so these we don’t need but blankets, big towels and rugs for the floor will all be a help. If you have anything that can help us, I’m in Benijófar if you can get things to me, other collection points are Siesta Group, Cabo Roig, Oasis, Benijófar The Post Room, Benijófar and our Charity Shop in La Murada on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday.Please help us 🙏 x ...

Hi all of you. I hope my post doesn’t bore the pants off you all, but if you’re dog people, then it applies to you and you’ll see where I’m coming from.I came home from working today in our Charity Shop in La Murada. It was 2.30 and as I always do, went on to Facebook to check out any emergencies there might be! It’s my quiet time with a cuppa before I start work again in the Puppy House and Isolation Area.The first thing I see on my page is a Hunter with a big smiley face, holding two Galgos joined to produce yet more Galgos!!! OMG! This really angered me as the breeding of these dogs by the hunters SHOULD BE STOPPED! They have litter after litter of babies, to pick maybe one or two of the puppies that might make the grade and any that don’t get discarded like rubbish or passed on to other hunters or people, not as pets I might add!This goes on with all the hunting breeds. Podencos, Pointers, any dog classed as a hunting breed. It’s terrible and it needs stopping.I am told and it is shown on Social media that new animal laws are coming out. Well let me tell you, they are a TOTAL waste of time.As you sit with your own house dogs. Poodles, Pugs, Chihuahuas etc, these new laws might apply to you. But for the hunting dogs here in Spain, they aren’t classed as pets or house dogs, they are tools to be used and abused. Who else could keep 30, 40, 50 or even 60 dogs on chains, starving with broken limbs and living in appalling conditions? These hunters seem to be above the law and to me this is NOT acceptable.So to make my point, this week I have been brought 6 Galgos in a trailer that could hardly carry two, but I could not say no even if I’d wanted to. I had to get them in as soon as possible. Unwanted tools.It was shocking, just shocking. In two months I have had so many uncared for Galgos in. Not forgetting Starving Twiggy the Podenco and this week a Christmas puppy, left at the church in the next village. Not a Galgo but a pretty little fluffy thing, an unwanted 3 Kings Night present.While everyone’s complaining about the rain and the cold and it’s been bitter here for days, my heart goes out to all the dogs over here, living on chains, with little or no care. It saddens me so very much. We can all go to our homes, have a shower, put on our jimjams and cuddle our dogs and forget about all the suffering going on. Sometimes I wish I could, but I can’t forget.We have rehomed a good number of Galgos to a very lovely group in Scotland but I am now getting more in than are going out. This isn’t a plea for money or anything but I just feel I need to tell you what goes on here.I just pray for all the shelters here in Spain going through the same thing. Something really has to be done to stop this happening. ... See MoreSee Less

🐾THIS IS A REALLY BIG THANK YOU!🐾Our Coffee Club members are so fantastic because we can rely on them. To be a member, we ask them to pledge the cost of a coffee or more if they want and as a result we can budget knowing we’ll be getting a set amount. The membership is gradually creeping up but if we could persuade another 100 people to give us a euro a month, that would pay for one of the, now two pallets of food that we buy each month. If you’d like to join this elite club, why not add it to your list of New Year Resolutions and sign up to help us. The link is below and once more, Happy New Year to our members and a million thank yous xxxparadiserescuekennels.com/monthly-donation/ ... See MoreSee Less

However you’re very welcome to post a link directly into the comments of this post “Friends Helping Friends”. This post can be found in announcements.

🚙 I WAS GOING ON ONE OF MY MISSIONS TODAY, BUT.........🚙I was up early in readiness to drive up to the closed border between Alicante and Albacete for 9am but you can see why it was called off. Hopefully the snow will clear soon so I can get there to pick up a precious cargo. You’ll see them when they’re safely with us but I thought you might like to see the garden of my contact and the reason the roads are chaos. ... See MoreSee Less

🐾GREAT EXCITEMENT AT PARADISE TODAY!🐾Our friends at Scandinavian Dog Rescue in Spain, Linn Elizabeth Ørnulfsdatter and Marianne Anita have started the maiden journey with their super new van and two of our dogs on board. Heading for Sweden are lovely Morena the Galgo and cheeky little Zorro. We have to congratulate the ladies for becoming the first Norwegian publicly approved carriers of dogs (type 2 longer distances over 8 hours) approved by the Food Safety Authority. They are allowed to transport dogs in the EU with approval in TRACES. It’s been a tough journey for them to reach their goal and we wish them all the best. Safe travels both of you and happy new lives, Morena and Zorro.Our other transporters are currently getting new permissions and registrations as Brexit has impacted on how they can operate so loads of luck from Paradise goes to them too. We hope to see you at our gate very soon 🦮🐕🦮🐕🦮🐕 ... See MoreSee Less
