La Casa de las Estrellas animal sanctuary is holding two Christmas charity sales at the end of November to raise funds for the rescued animals that they care for.

The animal sanctuary was started by Liala Miliardi a couple of years ago. “It all came about by accident”, she told us when we interviewed her last year. “My original plan was to hire it out for holiday rentals, but then I started rescuing animals.” She carried on rescuing them, and is now in charge of numerous dogs, a small herd of goats, two donkeys, cats, ducks, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits, a parrot, and an attention-seeking goose called Napoleon.

All of the animals that Liala rescued are neutered to avoid further breeding and given the necessary vaccines. This means that vet’s costs are one of her main outgoings, as well as food for dozens of animals.

Liala survives on the donations from supporters and, this Christmas, will be holding charity sales in aid of the sanctuary to pay for the supplies and treatments needed to care for the rescued animals.

Here’s where you can find them in November:

Wednesday, 22nd of November, 2pm-6pm, there will be a Christmas charity sale with good as new clothing, jewellery, gifts, toys, Christmas decorations and much more at Eliro Café Bar in Puerto del Carmen.

On Saturday, 25th of November, from 12 to 5pm, La Casa de las Estrellas will be represented at and supported by this year’s Christmas craft fair at The Shamrock Bar in Costa Teguise.

In addition, our new 2024 calendar with the animals from la Casa de las Estrellas is now on sale. Price: 10€ each.
