The S.A.T. Animal Rescue charity based in La Marina will be holding their annual Christmas Fete this Thursday morning.

The festive event is being held in order to raise money for the charity that helps rescue and rehome stray and abandoned dogs in the area.

There will be plenty going on during the three-hour event, including a tombola, mince pies and mulled wine, Play Your Cards Right, a cake stall, items to buy and even a visit from Father Christmas with gifts.

All this fun will be taking place at the S.A.T. charity shop on the La Marina Urbanisation from 11.00h until 14.00h.

S.A.T was founded in 1992 by a group of people of all nationalities who saw the need for a sanctuary for the abandoned dogs that roamed the streets of Torrevieja. Today, with its kennels at Dolores, which can home up to 70 dogs, it is still a multi-national organisation and a registered charity with the Valencian Community. The aim of the charity is to prevent unnecessary suffering and rehome the many abandoned dogs within the Costa Blanca area. No longer do they only cover Torrevieja, but they have cries for help from as far as Murcia and as far inland as Pinoso and Sax. Luckily for them, there are now more places like theirs that take in abandoned animals and leaving S.A.T. to be able to deal with the immediate problems in the Vega Baja area more readily.
