Sara has been meeting over a period of time with the island’s local authorities to negotiate subsidies for residents and their efforts are coming to light in the shape of the "Save Lifes, Sterilise!" Campaign.

There are many benefits to sterilising your pet, not only in relation to the animal's health but it also minimises the urge of the males wandering off looking for females when they are in heat, also avoiding unwanted litters and in turn decreases abandonment, to name but a few. You can also find a list of other benefits here (10-beneficios-de-esterilizar-a-tu-mascota)

There is a limited number of subsidies available and they will be granted on a strict first come fist served basis, so if you had been thinking of sterilising your pet but didn't have the funds to do it, don't miss your chance.

Currently there are only 3 participating municipalities: Arrecife, Haría and San Bartolomé .

But do not despair if you don't live in any of these, as other town halls have showed interest in adhering to this campaign too. We will  read more »

How Will Brexit Affect Lanzarote?

Britain has decided to leave the European Union this morning. It was a close result, and interestingly people under 50 voted to remain, but the older people of Britain carried the vote. Scotland voted strongly to remain in the union, and their politicians are already talking about a new referendum for them to leave the UK, so that they can remain in the EU.

European union flag

The British Prime Minister has announced he will resign, so someone else will be navigating the exit deal, which will take up to two years to become final.

So how will all this affect Lanzarote, and our regular visitors and residents from Britain?

The further you look ahead, the more hazy it becomes, but here are my best guesses.  read more »
