Fundraiser for Brenda
K9 are pleased to announce that we are hosting a fundraising event on the 9th June, from 3pm till 6pm at Polygon Bar in Los Cristianos, near The Arona Grand. This event is to raise funds for Brenda’s operation.
Our lovely dog Brenda suffered an accident while chasing after a ball, in which she fell and snapped her cruciate ligament. Although this injury does not cause her any pain, she needs an operation to repair it. Brenda is a lovely dog around 5 years old and she is up for adoption (see photo). If you would like to know more about her or meet her, don’t hesitate to come and visit! Ideally Brenda will recover better in a foster home after her operation, so please contact us if you are interested.
In other news, K9 received a very pleasant surprise for St George’s day! We were invited to the Amarilla Golf Club for their tournament. During the afternoon, K9 president Elsie was presented with a cheque for €3288.50 by the Golf members after a fantastic year of fundraising. We would like to say a massive thank you to all the members of the club, this money will go to fund flea and tick prevention for all of our dogs. It will also be used to tidy up some of the kennels.

If you wish to support K9 animal refuge and contribute towards the safe rescue and adoption of abandoned dogs and cats of Tenerife, we would be very appreciative. There are several ways to help: you can buy our merchandise (T shirts, vests, key rings, wristbands and more) at K9, you can sponsor one of our wonderful sponsor dogs via our website, you can donate either money via our website or in cash at our refuge or food and other items which help us look after our dogs and cats. Also, you can become a volunteer dog walker by calling us or simply popping by any day during our opening hours.
