Val Reed

ADANA is sad to announce that Estepona resident Val Reed, an inspired ADANA volunteer, passed away in hospital in Marbella after a brave battle with cáncer.

Val was a unique and much loved character who will be remembered for her original fund raising ideas. She organized the first ever ADANA Dog Walk, drove up and down the coast controlling ADANA collection boxes and was a fiendish record keeper with an invaluable folder of references.

New isolation pens

When a new arrival comes to ADANA, usually hungry, dirty and terrified, it has to be put in a pen on its own until the dog's temperament has been assessed and a suitable pen with other dogs is found. Sometimes a dog needs to be on its own because it is unwell or recovering from illness.
