PRESS RELEASE (FOR IMMEDIATE USE)
SECOND CHANCE FOR PEGO’S ANIMALS


The lease on the land that the L.A.P.S. Shelter has occupied for the last 6 years expired for the second time on Thursday 31st March. A newly formed, Pego based, association has been taken over all aspects of caring for the abandoned animals in the local area.
The handover was Wednesday 6th April at 17.00 hours. All responsibility for the animals and the site will be organised by them. When work is completed on a new site it is anticipated that the animals will be moved, this should provide better working conditions for the volunteers, as well as improved accommodation for the animals.
The L.A.P.S. team of volunteers and supporters are delighted that the many animals dumped at the site will benefit from a second chance of happiness.
The hardworking team of people from L.A.P.S. has raised nearly €125,000 during the last 6 years to provide a place of safety for nearly 2,000 animals. Everybody involved, especially the cleaners, are thanked for help they have given to this huge number of animals. They are all wished a peaceful and less stressful retirement.
Funds remaining in LAPS bank account will, of course, be made available to the new association to be used for the continuing care of abused and deserted lost souls.
The phone numbers to use for further enquiries are 662 345 044 or 656 361 136 – a new name for the association will be published as soon as possible.
Many thanks to everyone who has supported the Charity, it is hoped that continued help will be given to the new association.
Chrissie Edwards, president and founder of L.A.P.S.
