Accin del Sol

Our fund raising Pamper a pooch day (date to be announced) invites visitors to spend some time with one of our dogs:  maybe a leisurely stroll down to the sea or around the grounds, followed by a good groom, trying your hand at the dog agility fun course or even joining them for a swim in the doggie swimming  pool.   What better way to brighten their day than being pampered?

We have so many puppies at the refuge and we are always needing toys, collars, leads, towels, blankets and sheets, so if you have any to spare then please call the number below.

For more information phone: 922 778630, see our Aktion Tier Accion Facebook page or call into the refuge at the Poligono Industrial Estate, Granadilla, Exit 51 off the TF1, follow the signs for the ITER wind turbine park.  Monday - Friday, 3 to 6pm.



Live Arico

Many thanks to all who came, supported, sang, danced, dressed up and sold raffle tickets at our event at the Top Square.  We raised 617 and a great night was had by all.  Check out photos and videos on our Facebook page, and come to the next three monthly event at the end of September.


And of course thanks to all those who joined us at the open day conjunction with Horse Riding Adventures in Aldea Blanca, which is of course where our rescue horse Katie lives. The event was so well supported, by around 90 guests, and we had just the best time.  There are too many people to thank here, but everyones input is greatly appreciated. We raised 570 in total so Katies needs are covered for the next few months of summer and Katie now has 110 per month sponsorship, so we are well on the way to financing her independently, but more help is still needed, so please call Sue on 629 399102 if you can, or why not visit her, at the stables are from 10 2 and 4 8 daily except Mondays.






Permanent foster programme

Puppies, small, and cute dogs are easy to find homes for, but the older the dog, the harder it is. But we believe every dog deserves a chance, so any dog over 10 years old we offer as a permanent foster dog. The dog stays legally ours and we pay all vet care and medicines.  All he will cost you is food, a roof over his head, and your love for the rest of his life.

It takes a special kind of person to do this.  For instance, could you give 10-year-old Bruno a little happiness? He has been with us nearly all his life and obviously hes shy as a result, but a little TLC will sort that out.  Please call Sue on 629 388102.
