Meet Zafira

K9 animal news

She is seven months old, and came into the refuge through no fault of her own.

Her previous owners had to leave the country, and couldn’t take her with them. She is extremely friendly and very beautiful. Her colour is unique, and she is sure to capture your heart! Like any young puppy, she is very playful, and loves to run around and go crazy for a bit.

She is also etremely loving, and is sure to sit by your side for a fuss. She is very well behaved, and already knows basic commands like “sit” and “paw”. She loves going for walks and is very good with other dogs, as long as they want to play, too!

Because she is still young and learning, she needs an adopter with the time and patience to train her. She will make a fabulous addition to any household, and we hope her stay at the refuge will be short. Please can someone give this gorgeous girlie a second chance, as she does not deserve to grow up in a refuge? If you can offer Zafira a home, please contact us on 6676 38468.

Meet our dogs

We have many dogs, in all shapes and sizes, waiting patiently for their loving, safe-and-secure, forever homes. You can see them all, their stories and pictures, on our website at Go to “K9 dogs/Dogs waiting for homes”.

Why not visit us at K9 Refuge on Calle Chimbesque between Las Chafiras and Las Zocas any day of the week between 10-2pm? Alternatively, you can get in touch by telephoning us on 667 638 468, or emailing

You will also find stories of our dogs, their antics and heart-warming rehomings on Facebook by following Diary of a K9 Tenerife Dogwalker, K9 Tenerife and, not forgetting, K9 Tenerife Cats.

Charity shop

Our charity shop in Alcala Plaza is always looking for new items to sell. If you have any unwanted clothes, shoes, books or bric-a-brac, please pop them into our shop, or to K9.

We welcome all kinds of items, all proceeds going towards helping the dogs. The shop is open from 10am-2pm, Monday to Saturday. Pop in, or call them on 6465 61035. Collections can also be arranged, using this number.

Ways you can help

If you wish to support K9 animal refuge, and contribute towards the safe rescue and adoption of abandoned dogs and cats, we would be very appreciative.

You can buy our merchandise (T-shirts, vests, key rings, wristbands and more) at K9, sponsor one of our dogs via our website, and donate money via our website, or cash at our refuge. We also welcome donations of food and other items.

Also, you can become a volunteer dog walker by calling us, or simply popping by, during our opening hours. Remember to keep an eye on our website or Facebook page for any fund-raising events which you may like to attend.

K9 are often looking for people travelling to Germany, and other locations, to accompany dogs which have found new homes outside Tenerife. We are currently looking for flights to Munich or Stuttgart, so, if you are able to accompany our dogs during their flights, please contact us ASAP.
