ACRAA

ACRAA was originally formed in 2009, as a direct result of back to basics dog club wishing to raise funds for APSA. From this we found we had to be a bona fide association, as required by Spanish law.

With help from Spanish friends, who went through all the requested paperwork, and we submitted it to the authorities in Almeria.

We were granted permission and given the title of ACRAA, and a registration number NIF G 03716577, and as such have carried on raising funds for various deserving causes. For example: Asprodalba, Vera Orphanage, Age Concern, Arboleas School, Under privileged families in Arboleas and various dog charities.

To date we have raised mroe than €16500 for our local community. We are pleased to be able to put something back into a community which we believe has accepted us and helped in many ways.

ACRAA has a committee, which sit down and discuss, decie and vote and what to do and who for.
