AKIRA (Asociacion Protectora de Animales de Moraira & Teulada & Benissa)
Animal Charity Akira was formed on April 1, 2011, after
animal lovers noticed a need for a shelter in the areas of Benissa, Teulada and Moraira,
and since have been in talks with both town councils in securing suitable land
to build such a shelter, plus raising awareness of the charity.
Both mayors were in agreement that the shelter is a necessity, and the Akira team hoped it would not be too much longer until they could lay their first brick and offer a temporary home for many dogs abandoned in the area.
Since the start of the Charity the Akira team has been fundraising hard, organising fashion shows, meals and BBQ’s, rastro stalls and markets, ladies day and auction's.
November 2012: After 18 months of hard work we are
delighted to announce that the Benissa Town Hall has donated a beautiful plot of
land in the Industrial Poligono La Pedrera in Benissa. It is behind the Eco
Park, 100 meter inlands, with easy access and with a large forest next to it
where the dogs can be walked!
We hope to be able to open the doors of our Shelter in 2013, to finally being able to save the abandoned dogs in the Teulada, Moraira and Benissa area.
In February 2013 AKIRA has opened their 2nd hand shop in Moraira, to try to raise more of the so much needed money!
works together with the Dutch Organisation 'Dierenhulp Zonder Grenzen'
(www.dierenhulpzondergrenzen.com) who finds many new families for the abandoned
dogs, and who help financially and with food, medication etc.
