Lancaster Grand Community Support
A Grand Variety Show in aid of Animal Care and Hope & Homes for Olhao Canil Dogs
Saturday 25th April 7.30pm
This spectacular variety night will showcase some of the best local talent in order to raise funds for these loved and much needed charities.
Your support would be greatly welcomed as the Lancaster Grand will divide the proceeds equally between both charities.
Animal Care are a local very busy animal rescue charity. They have been a registered charity helping animals since 1978. They take unwanted and abandoned animals in from all over the North West and look after them until they can find them loving new homes. They save predominantly dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and rodents. And rehome over 800 animals every year. They are the only rescue in this area which can help dogs, cats and small animals so they are always very busy and always very full.
Hope&Homes for Olhao Canil Dogs
Was started by Emma Roberts in 2018 following a few trips to Portugal.
The Algarve now wants to present a clean dog free holiday destination to the public but has outlawed killing strays so they are simply rounded up and thrown into the most horrible dog prison you can imagine where they are left locked in cages, boiling hot in the sun and freezing cold in the rain. That is there entire existence – many are there for their entire lives.
By working together with a few other women and some small helpful charities ‘Strolling for Strays’ in Portugal and ‘Animal Angels’ in the UK and a lovely pet transport company Emma is striving to get the dogs rehomed in the uk following microchipping, neuteuring, healthchecks and immunisations – so far she has managed to rescue 14 of the 80 dogs there.
