I am in total shock, a Portuguese friend of the family has just forwarded me the below link and anyone who loves and cares for animals will know of and tell you about The Refúgio dos Burros (Donkey and other animals rescue sanctuary) in the Algarve. My last G.S was from them and my family also support them by donating and purchasing things to/from their shop in Lagoa, as most we know do.
It is a real shock because 160 animals lives are at stake with only 60 days to go. So all you rescue centres out there please take some of these animals and even if your not in Portugal. APAA can you help? Absolutely, gutted this evening as I suspect many are when they hear the news if they have not done so already.
