MADAME, medium-small breed, DOB 01-01-2014, was found in an abandoned house with her 6 tiny puppies. Madame was trying to protect her babies and it took the volunteers some time to gain her confidence and complete the rescue. But Madame soon realised that the volunteers were safe and settled in well to the sanctuary. Madame’s pups are now all grown up and have gone to new homes but poor mum is still waiting. Madame gets on well with other dogs and cats but doesn’t really like to play and will potter about rather than dash about. We think her life would be complete if she had a sofa to relax on and a loving family too! Please like and share to help her find them. Thank you.

UMA’s story is one of disbelief and cruelty although nothing does surprise us here!

She was found after someone had tried to cut off her tail, but hadn’t succeeded and they left her in such a terrible state!

The pain she must of gone through does not bear thinking about – she had been seen for several days before anyone was able to catch her and bring her to safety

She was operated on and most of her tail was removed – she just has a little stump of a tail she is now recovering well in a foster home.

UMA is a beautiful girl, and despite her ordeal she is friendly and trusting although still a little shy and vary of strangers until she gets to know them .

Her foster home will help her overcome this and hopefully she will soon become to realise that not all humans are cruel and unkind – each day she is getting better. She is a tiny girl too at only 45cm to shoulder and will not take up much room on anyone’s sofa but hopefully will take a lot of room in someones heart!

She would love a nice secure home now – with a family to love her and who she can love back as like all rescue dogs, she will repay you in love and affection for ever more

She is neutered, has all vaccinations passport and microchip

If you would like to adopt UMA please contact us via this page

How can anyone walk away and leave any dog in this way??

ABBA is a very pretty, intelligent and friendly young girl who has already known human unkindness in her short life.

She spent some time in a temporary foster home when she was first rescued as the refuge was full but now she is with all our others waiting to find new homes

Like all Breton’s she is full of fun although still a little wary of new people but gaining our trust and learning to live happily with all the other dogs.

Over the coming weeks we will get to know her more , but already we can see that in time what a wonderful family pet she will make and how much she would love to have a family of her own who will not let her down again

She is neutered, fully vaccinated and has a passport and microchip.

If you think you can offer this lovely girl a home, please contact us to try and get ABBA the home she so deserves

Meet LUKE – another handsome Breton Boy looking to find a new family!! He was found abandoned, frightened and running the streets of Rute before someone managed to catch him and bring him to safety

Luke would love a home with a family who have the time to give him the sort of life he needs

Like all Spaniels he is an energetic and very intelligent boy, who loves to go for walks and explore and he will need a certain amount of training although he is in a foster home here who are already helping with this,

He is house trained, used to living in a home environment and is loving and affectionate and will make a wonderful addition to the right home .

We are able to cat test and although he is not in foster with any children, we can introduce him to some

LUKE is castrated, fully vaccinated , has passport and microchip and basically all ready to go!!

Dero – Male, large breed, DOB 01/09/2014. Dero was abandoned in a town in Almeria almost blind and with clear symptoms of Leishmania. Despite the fact that PPP adoptions are almost none, the sanctuary couldn’t leave him there. The results came back positive for Leish. He is an excellent dog; good, sweet and super playful! He walks very well on a lead and he loves cuddles! You will need a PPP licence to adopt Dero. Please like and share to help him find that forever family to comfort him forever. Thank you.

Entered the refuge: 07.09.2017
Approximate date of birth: 08.11.2016
Breed: Podenco cross
Female – medium size

A pretty name for a pretty girl!

ROSA was found by one of our volunteers who help look after the dogs, They spotted her running along a main road near to their house while they were driving and she almost go hit by the car in front of them

Lucky for ROSA , they stopped and managed to catch her, she was very frightened and stressed and they immediately took her to the vet to get her checked out – of course she wasn’t chipped

Once she had settled down and felt safe with them they realised what a lovely dog she was, lively, happy and just wanted to play.

She has a lovely nature and her coat is in good condition, and just look at her wonderful bright eyes!! What a happy face

Probably another Podenco surplus to requirements?

We need to find a good home for her now – somewhere she can blossom as she will make someone a wonderful pet and companion!

Entered the refuge: 20.08.2017
Approximate date of birth: May 2016
Breed: Podenco x

The start of the hunting season is here – and already we have had many calls from people about abandoned dogs .

Last week in just one day, 3 were found and brought to the refuge,

ROB was one of these and like all of them , he was abandoned and thrown onto the streets as if he was on no importance to his so called ‘owner’!

In temperatures of 40 degrees with no water and little food to scavenge , he had to fend for himself, so we can only be thankful someone called us to help

Despite all of this, his trust in humans is amazing and although a little shy, he is loving and affectionate and like all Pods will make a wonderful pet – loyal and faithful .

He is a longer haired Podenco – and is very handsome !

Please help us find him a home . He is neutered and will be fully vaccinated , has passport and microchip

LAZARO, large breed, Labrador cross, 1 and a half years old. Lazaro was a stray dog who was being fed by some locals. When he didn’t turn up for 3 days in a row they went to look for him and found him attached to the underside of a car. They called the volunteers who managed to release him and take him to the vet. Lazaro had inflammation and bruising but luckily no broken bones. He is now settled at the sanctuary and is a very friendly chap who loves playing with the other dogs. He’s also proven to be absolutely great with the volunteers children and plays ever so well with them. Please like and share to help him find his forever home
