Do you want to be my sponsor?
To sponsor a dog means: helping an abandoned animal – helping my companions and me to have the basic care that every living creature deserves – that you are able to come and see me and take me for a walk! – to receive photos and news about me - And also ... I promise to tell you first hand when I find a forever family!
ADOPT, DON'T BUY!
There are so many wonderful homeless dogs in desperate need of a forever home so why would you buy one? A.P.A.D. houses many friendly, loyal and healthy dogs waiting for someone to offer them love and protection in a forever home. Many of them are once owned and loved by someone. The reason that these dogs have ended up in the shelter and were abandoned is often NOT because they did anything wrong, but because of human problems, like a divorce, moving house move, death, etc. So please consider adopting instead of buying; you will not only change a dog´s life forever but the dog you rescued will also enrich your life with its unconditional love and gratitude!
“THE GREATNESS OF A NATION AND ITS MORAL PROGRESS CAN BE JUDGED BY THE WAY ITS ANIMALS ARE TREATED.” – Mahatma Gandhi
One of A.P.A.D.´s priorities is the problem of stray dogs in Spain, the highest number in Europe. APAD not only confronts this problem by taking care of dogs that already have been abandoned but also with actions to prevent future abandonment and abuse through education, awareness, denunciation of abuse and example.
