We're a non-profit charity founded in 2002 by a group of expats who were concerned about the plight of animals in the Albox area. At present, we're the only registered animal charity in the Almanzora Valley area. During our time we’ve had many changes in management teams and staff. Recently, due to many expats returning to the uk, we are running on a skeleton staff.
Our main focus at present is finding loving homes for the 100 + dogs in our care. We also have many cats and kittens in foster homes that need a permanent loving home.
As well as rescuing animals we’re also dedicated to reducing the number of puppies born accidentally so operate a neutering policy - all our dogs are neutered as soon as possible and males and females are kept apart when not.
1. To rescue abandoned animals and find them a permanent home.
2. To care, protect and give accommodation provisionally for all the rescued animals, even when sick.
3. To establish a net of possible homes and aid programmes to fulfil the above mentioned objects.
4. To promote better care and training for the animals, increasing their possibility of finding a permanent home.
5. To ensure all rescued animals are examined by a vet and treated when necessary.
6. We do not euthanise any healthy dog.
Our area of operation extends along the A334 Baza Road west from the A7/E15 Motorway to Serón: the communities that we serve are all in the Almanzora Valley.
Funds are raised by holding a variety of events, from the APSA Charity Shop in Albox and from voluntary donations - tins are located in many of the local area's shops. We receive no government funding, so we are always in need of more money to carry out our work!
