We’d like to say a huge thank you to friends and supporters of Valle Verde, Connie and Jurgen, who visited the shelter this week and gave a very generous donation of €300 which will go towards the care and upkeep of the animals here at the shelter.

Instead of presents for his birthday this year, Jurgen asked friends and family to give him money that he could donate to Valle Verde Animal Rescue – a very kind gesture for which we are extremely grateful.

Connie and Jurgen, originally from Germany, live in Almuñecar with their own rescue dog and are regular donors of Valle Verde. Here are some photos taken during their visit.
