We are visiting Mar de Cristal just for a few days. When we arrived at the rental unit and looked around we noticed on the rooftop terrace a horrible smell. Trying to find out where it came from we discovered a poor puppy on the terrace next door, no food or drink just dirt, garbage everywhere along with the dog’s poop and urine all over the terrace. Obviously nobody has visited, cared for or cleaned this animal since we have arrived. This is pure animal abuse! Where can we get help for this poor sweet dog? It is very scared but absolutely loving and kind any time we check on him. Please help!

Thank you for responding! 

I will contact the website you sent me, I hope they speak English and I can explain the problem. 

We have made a complaint immediately after we arrived to the people we are renting from. Apparently they have tried numerous times to do something, even called the police, but nothing happened. This is why I was searching for some other way to find help for the dog. 

Are there are rules on keeping pets here in the community of Mar de Cristal?

The vet at Catad speaks English.

If you send an email, it’s OK – they translate with google translate. Best to put the picture to your email.

When I look at the background: Are you in one of the Ribera Beach Apartments?

I would try to contact the president of the Phase and also the “Administration”. Ask your landlord for the numbers.

(I have an app. in Phase 1 so the president & Administration could be someone else)

Good god Aminae, poor wee pup. 

Good luck and well done for bothering, surely local residents are aware of this?

I don’t know if anyone is aware.
The people managing our place know about it and are trying to get help but without success. I am very concerned about the fate of the dog, if anybody has access to the management please help me get in touch.

I'm in Ireland but feel your pain and worry. 

Just hope local people nearby aren't turning a blind eye to it, as it looks like this has been going for a long time?  I'm fuming if that's the case.

You're a good person,  please keep updates coming.

Hi,

If this is phase 3, Ribera Beach, the administration company are Arcos in Los Belones, they should be able to help. The administrator is called Magdalena. They may even be administrators for the other phases too.  Worth a try. Poor dog, I hope you are able to help him, thank goodness you’ve seen him.

The problem is that nobody can see the dog. He is locked in on a rooftop terrace, out of sight for everyone except anyone who stays in the apartment we are in. It can not be seen from anywhere else. 

The dog is very quiet, we haven't heard any noise or barking from him as he is so very scared. But when we go up to check on him he licks our hand and just wants to play. A beautiful and loving puppy - I am not sure how it survives but my heart is aching as we leave tomorrow. 

If you live in this community and read this please don't let this issue fade away, this puppy needs our help!!!!
