DOG OF THE DAY – ESTRELLA, large breed, almost 2 years old. This beautiful girl has blossomed in the care of the sanctuary after lots of love and attention. She was rescued from the streets of Almeria but the cuts and bruises all over her body told the story of a terribly hard life. Like many street dogs in Spain, she had stones thrown at her every time she tried to approach someone to beg for food. When she first arrived at the sanctuary she was really scared of people but she has slowly gained her confidence and grown to love the volunteers and even plays well with their children. She is great with other dogs.

Pinky and Gordi

Please can someone see the beauty in these two dogs. They deserve their own family. Pauline Wright is the contact at Princess Animal Rescue.

If you can be the family to offer this lovely brother and sister a new start then I will do a BOGOF offer if both adopted together, only one adoption fee and will help raise the transport cost.

They are both great with other dogs and children but can’t go with cats.


Duque has been in the refuge for 5 years now. he’s a GSD cross with podenco. 6 years old now. no issues, well educated and calm. Duque is not the dog who will be all over you all day, he is not like that, he is quite independent, but knows how to behave and has a natural elegance. He has seen many of his fellow friends leave in adoption. Nobody ever asked for him. He doesn’t know what is to be in a home and have a family. Duque is castrated, chipped has his own passport and all vaccins up to date. Negative to Leishmaniosis. Will somebody give him the chance to know something else than the streets and the refuge. Contact Marta Sanchez-Arevalo or Irene van den Bossche

Ruby has been through hell and needs a special home with lots of time to spend with her to get her over her fears. This is very important for her, she is good with other dogs but fearful of humans, Just over years old and had a shit start to her life, sterilised and a full passport so can travel. Do you have a special place in your heart and home, she will reward you a thousand fold————————————————-Dit is Ruby. Ze is een paar jaar oud en heeft een érg slechte start gehad.Ze heeft veel aandacht nodig, met voldoende tijd om haar over haar angsten te helpen.Tijd en geduld is echt héél belangrijk voor haar. Ze kan goed opschieten met andere honden, maar naar mensen toe is ze schuw. Ruby is gesteriliseerd en heeft een volledig paspoort. Wie heeft er voor Ruby een speciaal plaatsje in zijn of haar hart en kan haar een veilig thuis geven? Ze zal het rijkelijk belonen.

POSTE, medium-large breed, 2-3 years old. Poste was found tied up at the door of the sanctuary, he was trembling with fear and the volunteers had to approach slowly to untie him as he was so scared. He’s now starting to relax and become more confident with them and has proven to be great with the other dogs. He’s a bit on the thin side but with love and care will soon be ready for adoption. Please like and share to help him find a home. Thank you.

STAN needs a new home and we hope with your help we are going to help him find one!

He is at present living here with a family, but due to a change in circumstances with health issues, they can no longer keep him.
He has been with them every since they rescued him when he was found abandoned, wandering along in the town, and rather than ask us to help then and bring him to the refuge, they decided to take him home, so the decision to find a new family has not been take lightly.

STAN will stay with them now until we can find one for him
He is a very friendly, sociable and loving dog that is obviously house trained and socialised and used to living in a home.

He is very obedient boy who is always happy to please and can be off lead in areas where there are no goats or sheep!!
Ideally he needs a family who have no other dogs or just one established dog in the home already, and if he can find this, then his family here will be very happy and so will STAN

He is full vaccinated and neutered and will make someone a lovely pet and faithful companion as he has a lot of love to give!
Our aim is to help find him a home and not to make any judgements – thank you.

CHICO – 40cm to shoulder (possible Bodeguerro cross)

Hello, I’m Chico, a lovely boy of 8 years. – yes getting on!!

Until last year I lived happily with my owner on our farm. Unfortunately, my ‘safe’ home had been declared uninhabitable and my owner had to move into a flat. There was no place for me there.

My owner wanted the best for me and looked until he found a good shelter. So he gave me away as a ‘present’ but after a couple of weeks that family just dumped me somewhere.

Fortunately, the people whose dogs I regularly visited on my wanderings took me to the vet and it showed that I was chipped and had received all my vaccinations .

They contacted my owner and he was sad to hear that I had been abandoned, but he really could not take me back in.

So now I am in a lovely foster home near the GPAR refuge and they have said they would help my foster Mum to find me a lovely home.

I am too old to be going to so many different places – all I would like is a nice home, a warm bed and a loving family where I know I will not have to move on again. I am a really friendly chap!

Oh just one thing – I am not keen on cats and would like to be an only dog so I get all the attention for myself ! However I do like other dogs so perhaps one other dog that is already with the family that can show me the house rules!!

CHICO is not a GPAR dog but we are going to help the lady who is looking after him to find him a home. He is neutered , vaccinated , has a passport and microchip



Poor Benni, he is soooo frustrated. He is waiting for a forever mummy or daddy but no-one has come along. Abandoned as a small pup in a plastic bag on a garden gate, Benni is a 2yr old, Sharpei cross, fully vaccinated, chipped and neutered. He is energetic and will give someone lots of play time and love time. He is friendly with all other doggy playmates, living here with us and our 24 other rescues. Can you give him the forever loving home that he so deserves? Please pm or call on 634 456 701 for any further information.

Biscuit is still a young one. Biscuit likes cuddles and playing with his friends, but he will be far better of in a nice caring and loving family. Can you help Biscuit find a forever home?

DELIA, medium sized Podenco, DOB 05-05-2013. Podencos are Spanish hunting dogs used to control the rabbit population and are traditionally dumped or shot after the hunting season ends when they are no longer of use. Many Spanish people do not recognise that Podencos can make great pets and they are always the first to be put down in Government pounds as they are unlikely to ever be homed. Delia has had one stroke of luck though – that the sanctuary got to her before the pound, but it was not in the best of circumstances. The sanctuary were notified of a Podenco who had been ran over at a petrol station in Almeria and could not manage to get up. On arriving at the scene, the volunteers found just one person who was crouched down to comfort the injured dog on the side of the road; the rest of the people just walked on by. Delia was taken to the vet and it was discovered that she had a fractured humerus, but after her operation she has recovered well and is now ready to be homed. Delia can be a bit nervous around people to begin with and will need experienced owners who can be patient with her and help her to gain confidence. Delia is at her happiest when playing with other dogs so would benefit from a home where she is not the only dog. Please like and share her post to help her find it. Thank you.
