FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN FOR A NEW RESCUE VAN
APAD's rescue van is 12 years old and in very bad shape. More than 279.000 kms on the clock, heating system beyond repair and every other week another repair has to be done to keep us going. We need a new rescue van! Click here for more info and how you can help:
Would you like to be my sponsor?
We know that many people can not adopt an animal, either because they can not give it the attention they need or for any other circumstance. Sponsoring an animal means that you take charge of part of the expense of its care in our center. Of course you can come to visit and take him or her for a walk!

We invite you to come visit our shelter

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.
