Mar Shopping hosts adoption fair for ARA animal shelter

A “responsible adoption campaign” organised by Animal Rescue Algarve (ARA) will take place this weekend at Mar Shopping Algarve in Loulé.

Starting on Friday (10am-6pm) and continuing on Saturday and Sunday (10am-1pm), the adoption fair will be held outside the shopping centre and include several of the animals that are up for adoption.

At the same time, the association will also be launching a new book called ‘For The Love of…’ created by British couple Tony and Sarah Wyld.

The book, which hopes to raise awareness for the wellbeing of animals, includes several stories and illustrations by Almancil schoolchildren. It can be purchased on the shopping centre’s ground floor in front of the Arcádia tearoom.

In a statement to the press, Mar Shopping stresses that it supports the “pet-friendly” concept and was the first shopping centre in 2019 to open a pet area, Woof Land, with dog-sitting services and several activities aimed at pet animals.
