Ladies who Lunch for charity

Ladies who Lunch for charityLadies who lunch last week raised €664 towards animal care at a west coast charity for abandoned animals.
Sheila Merriott, organiser of the lunch on behalf of AEZA (Associação Ecologista e Zoófila de Aljezur) explained: “The charity does fantastic work rescuing abandoned dogs and cats, some of which are left in a pretty distressed state, and we thought this ladies-only lunch would be an ideal way of raising some much-needed funds.

Ladies who lunch last week raised €664 towards animal care at a west coast charity for abandoned animalsThe lunch, on Vale da Telha, was attended by 44 ladies and the cash raised was boosted by a raffle with prizes provided by local businesses.

AEZA Vice-President Kerry Gross declared: “Each year we rescue 120 dogs and about half as many cats, many of which are handed into the shelter or the local veterinary clinic whilst some are collected from the street. So the money so generously raised by the ladies will come in very useful for their care, which includes veterinary care including sterilisations and vaccinations."

AEZA is a non-profit association formed in 2001, whose main objective is to provide abandoned animals suitable conditions and to give them shelter, food and water, affection and care but most importantly we also aim to find good, new homes for our animals not just here in Aljezur but also through contacts in Germany and the UK.

There is more information on the AEZA website (www.aeza.org/en) and their Facebook page (AEZA Dog and cat adoption).
