ADANA LOGO COMPETITION

Estepona dog rescue and rehoming charity ADANA has announced the launch of a competition, open to all, for the design of a new logo to feature on the charity’s publicity material.

The chosen design will appear on all our leaflets, stationery, banners and on our new van.

"Many people have told us they find our current logo confusing with no visual impact", said President Mary Page. "One visitor to the kennels said it reminded him of signs directing you to the loos at an airport."

The competition is open to anyone, but with schools being especially asked to become involved. ADANA is a charity which has facilities only for stray dogs which it cares for and rehomes so the design must obviously reflect this.

Happy Ending

It was lovely to receive this email earlier in the week:

Hi Adana,

Just want to say a big thank to you all, what a truly wonderful thing you do rescuing so many dogs.

I used to come up and walk dogs at the weekend dreaming of the day I could give a dog a home.

Then one day my wife and daughter returned from Adana with Flappy! 

I have enclosed a few pics of Flappy. Already we couldn’t imagine life without her, the most loving dog you could ever ask for. 

Anybody who says dogs don’t smile, have a look at the enclosed pictures.  

Kind Regards, 

William from Estepona

Christmas Day at ADANA

 

On a dull and drizzly Christmas morning, several of the faithful and a handful of visitors made their way to the shelter to help give the dogs a Christmas treat. Some were lucky to get a walk before the rain started in earnest, but every dog was given a Christmas dinner of wet food, a real treat indeed! This was due to the wonderful generosity of one of our donors.

ADANA and World Animal Day

World Animal Day is celebrated every year in the first week of October and of course ADANA took part in collecting outside Carrefour as usual. This year’s collecting team was organised as usual by Susie Brown and again, as usual, the Estepona public donated generously.

New Secretary elected at the EGM


Extraordinary General Meeting on 30 October 2017 at the Padre Manuel Centre, Estepona at 19.00.

After the resignation of Secretary Lyn Bessant, Sandra Walker Kincaid, Adoption Team Organiser, took on the duties as Acting Secretary but as she was willing to do this only on a temporary basis, preferring to concentrate on the adoption work, we were delighted when we were able to elect a new, permanent Secretary, Charles Brierley.

Rock the Castle!

A very enjoyable and profitable night was held at an open-air rock concert held at Duquesa Castle as part of the Manilva Fair. Tribute bands Queen and Deeper Purple headlined the bill and ADANA was on hand to ensure the wine and beer flowed throughout the night - in fact we ran out of all alcoholic drink just before midnight!!
