Many of you will know Vivienne Wharton - the President and founder of ACTIN Asociacion de defensa animal​. Viv had an accident recently and broke her leg resulting in an operation to repair a broken tibia and ligament, and a lot of pain. She has been told that it will be a long recovery process, she now has a metal plate and pins in her right leg. No wonder it's painful. Not good news for a yoga and pilates teacher! Understandably she has had to take a back seat from ACTIN for the time being.

ACTIN was not set up to be an animal rescue organisation. Its primary aim is to educate, inform and advise about the importance of animal welfare and legal implications of animal cruelty here in Spain. However in the past Viv has always stepped up when other local animal rescue charities have been unable or unwilling to help with an abandoned or injured animal .... though this was never part of our intended remit.

At present we are not in a position to take in any more animals as we have insufficient foster homes and funds. We ask for your understanding in this and Viv has asked me to extend her apologies to anyone who has been trying to contact her recently. Our biggest concern now is to pay for transport, kenneling fees and vets bills for the animals currently in our care as well as promoting the PAES Conference ....an event she is so proud of. Without Viv there is no ACTIN, her knowledge and ability to network, raise awareness and much needed funding is sadly missed. Please help us ... and the animals currently in our care ... by booking your places for the PAES Conference now and sharing our posts for it and the Mutley Crew appeal with your friends and on facebook. Every euro/pound helps .... and every share makes a difference. Our PayPal address is: donations@actin-spain.com or use this direct paypal link to donate for the Mutley Crew.
