K9 animal news
K9 are pleased to announce that they are hosting a fundraising event on the 9th June, from 3-6pm, at Polygon Bar in Los Cristianos, near the Arona Grand.
Our lovely dog Brenda suffered an accident while chasing a ball, in which she fell and snapped her cruciate ligament. Although this injury does not cause her any pain, she needs an operation to repair it. This event is to raise funds for her operation.
Brenda, who is around five years old, is up for adoption. If you would like to know more about her, or meet her, don’t hesitate to come and visit! Ideally, after her operation, she would recover better in a foster home, so please contact us if you are interested.
A very welcome donation!
Recently, K9 received a very pleasant surprise for St George’s day! We were invited to the Amarilla Golf Club for their tournament, and, during the afternoon, K9 president, Elsie, was presented with a cheque for 3,288.50 euros by the golf members, after a fantastic year of fundraising.
We would like to say a massive thank you to all the members of the club; this money will go to fund flea-and-tick prevention for all our dogs, and will also be used to tidy up some of the kennels.
Our next car-boot sale will take place on 27th May at Los Gigantes Bus Station, between 9am-1pm.

Cheap Flights to St.Petersburg, RussiaSt. Petersburg is the place miracles are made.

But St. Petersburg is also the site of some of the most pivotal moments in Russia's history, most notably the Siege of Leningrad.
One of the most awesome spectacles you can see once you've stepped off a flight to St. Petersburg are the “white nights” that occur in the city in the summer.
