Rescued Dog Shelter

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe are an Organizational called Arronches Adopta and we have a rescued dog shelter, for all the abandoned and poorly treated dogs. We rehabilitate these dogs, we give them a new reason to live and, in the end, they become available for adoption. All of us who work in the Shelter are volunteers, wich makes it difficult to manage. We always need help to clean the boxes, to rescue new animals, to care for them, to feed them, to take them on a walk, to take care of them in the postoperative period...
    It's a lot of work, but we do it with all of our heart. And, trust us, they repay double what we give them.
