Poor girl!

Accion de Sol news

THIS lovely, gentle, sad dog arrived at the refuge via Protection Civil. She had been abandoned on the streets, after recently having had puppies.

Of no use to her owner, she was dumped on the street like a piece of garbage. Where are the puppies, and what future do they have? We will never know. The cruelty that we see shown every day, to the dogs, is heart-breaking. They are such loving, dedicated, gentle animals. Please adopt, and do not buy!


Nikki Attree has created a wonderful portfolio of paintings and sculptures, expressing the plight of the abandoned dogs, here in Tenerife. From today (Friday 18th) until the 30th October, an exhibition of her work will be held at the Cultural Centre in Adeje, every day from 8am-9pm.

Nikki is a very talented artist who has spent a lot of her time helping the refuges on the island, by expressing the importance of adopting, and not buying, a dog.


The island’s refuges are full of abandoned dogs, so please adopt and don’t buy. Please spread the word, amongst your Spanish friends, about the dire situation, here in Tenerife.

We have 200 gorgeous dogs here, all desperately seeking loving homes. We need to find adopters for the dogs in our care. We do not charge for adoptions, but donations are very welcome towards the vast running costs of the refuge.

Every dog is microchipped and fully vaccinated, and is heartworm and flea-free. They each have a passport, and have been  sterilised, so you can be sure your new dog has the best start to its new life. Please adopt a dog, and don’t buy, and please never let your dog breed. If we all help the dogs in the full refuges, we can make a difference!

Assistance required

We are always looking for people to walk the dogs in the refuge during opening hours.

Please do call the refuge on 6643 21219 or 602463242, between 8am-5pm, if you can help in any way. We always need tinned dog-food for our older animals, plus blankets, towels, sheets, dog toys, collars and leads.
