Lost or Abandoned Dogs

ALM Rescued Pup CarribeWe’ve had dogs getting rescued all over the place; Salobreña, Almuñécar and even Granada, so here goes…

First of all in Almuñécar where the fire service was called out to rescue a puppy from inside the old Carribe Disco – I’ve needed rescuing from there myself, back in the 80’s, I can tell you!

People in a nearby block of flats overlooking the closed up installations had heard pitifull whining coming from within and had even managed to throw some food over the wall but in the end they had decided to call in Los Bomberos!

Out came the extending ladder and before you knew it one black puppy was safely on the outside. The fire service is now looking for somebody to adopt it.

Meanwhile, over in Sinville Salobreña the Policía Local managed to rescue no fewer than four pups that had been abandoned on a piece of wasteland bordering the river.

Again, soft-hearted puppy lovers had spotted them and called upon the honed death squad, also known as the municipal police. The policemen, fighting back terror, picked up the pups and took them into the police station (for questioning?) until an animal refuge association came around to collect them.

GRA Rescued DogsWhich brings us to the City of Granada where the Policía Local were called into the area near the Camino de Ronda by locals in the early hours of Sunday morning to save the lives of five dogs that had been thrown into a rubbish hopper: a mother and four pups; all of them thrust into a bag.

It was around midnight when a young woman heard whimpering coming from within the hopper. Just at that moment a police patrol was passing by so she flagged them down and explained what she had heard.

They fished the bag out – the mother and one of her young were already half out of it – and liberated the abandoned canine family from an almost certain messy end inside the compacting mechanism of a rubbish lorry.

The police are investigating to track down the culprit, who could face a fine between 2,000 and 30,000 euros. In the meantime the dogs are being looked after by an animal-protection society.
