Update on Actin’s fundraising events November/December 2013
Actin Facebook Auctions are proving to be very helpful as an event for fundraising. A short auction after rescuing Paloma, the Mastin chained up in the shed for 4 years, raised funds which helped towards September’s vet bill. Our Christmas Auction which finished on Saturday 30th November, raised 780 euros which was very much needed, once again for vet bills.
We are very grateful to the people who donated items and what fantastic gifts they were – lots of doggy related jewellery and some very nice pieces indeed. Our next Auction will be well worth a visit, for the beautiful items as well as the cause. If you have anything you would like to donate to our next Auction, please contact our administrator on the Auction page or firstname.lastname@example.org so if you are interested in hearing about it and joining us, why not LIKE the page on Facebook now, to get updates and be part of this worthy project. Our next fundraiser is a raffle and a very special prize, so please look out on our FB page for the details.
Actin is eager to raise much needed funds, to cover vet’s bills, travel for the dogs going into foster care, kennel fees and general welfare of the dogs in our care; those are the immediate costs. However, what we really want and need for the future, is to be able to invest in a good quality sterilisation campaign; this includes education, advertising and a fund to offer concessionary prices. So we are creating a number of fundraising ideas and events that you may be able to help us with. We hope also to raise more of these billboards, with the message to sterilise animals, we would like to be able to keep this one running, (featured below), the contract has already ceased but the media company has kindly extended the period, until we can raise funds to extend the contract.

Actin’s Teacup Campaign
Please support our Teacup campaign, we have rescued so many puppies recently and so many owners just cannot afford to have their dogs sterilised, that we would like to start by helping with concessionary prices, according to the circumstances of the owners. Our Teacup campaign is created to help the puppies we have currently and to try to prevent more – as much as we love them, the main problems in Spain are created by overpopulation. Our puppy called Teacup and our rescued Kitten Kupcat are representative of the problems. To help and spread the word we have an event on Facebook, all you have to do is join, then send us the price of a cup of coffee, it’s so simple and effective if everyone did it. To see the event and follow the campaign you can join here Teacup’s sterilisation campaign.
