Our motivation is to allow every animal a life with dignity
APAD´s mission is to save abandoned, neglected and abused dogs from the streets of Denia, to humanely take care of their well being during their stay in APAD, and most importantly to find them loving forever homes.
The overall objective of APAD is to prevent future abandonment and abuse and to achieve responsible ownership and respect for animals, and we act accordingly not only by taking care for the animals that have already been abandoned, but also through awareness, denunciation of abuse, information and by example.
At this moment we house more than 120 dogs, both adults and puppies, that are waiting for their forever homes that provide them with safety, care, love and treat them with respect and responsibility.
Our philosophy is never to euthanize an animal because of lack of space or funding but to save, rehabilitate and re-home all adoptable animals under our care.
