Short url:

We are three friends who, without belonging to any organization, decided years ago to start helping abandoned and/or mistreated animals, to give them a SECOND CHANCE. We find them daily… There are so many!

In Spain, and more concretely in Castilla la Mancha, there are many cases of animal abuse and abandonment. Especially towards the end of the hunting season and in summer months. The only answer we can give to this situation is the lack of consciousness and disrespect to living beings.

In our space we take care of the animals from the street until we can find them a good home. In the meantime they stay with us and with love and patience we work hard to provide them a safe and healthy environment. Through our contacts we find people who want to adopt, or can be a ¨godfather¨ or ¨godmother¨ and take care of the animal until it is adopted. We pick up any kind of animal that we find abandoned or hurt, some have been mistreated for years, some just need some love and care. They can't express what they´ve been through but you can see it in their eyes full of fear.

We are trying to contact different animal shelters from Spain, the issue is that they are always full, without space. We are also reaching out through social media. 

Another problem are the cat colonies, cats giving birth uncontrollably on the street. We are trying to sterilize the cats we find, the ones that are in very precarious conditions to give birth again, undernourished.

WE NEED TO STOP THIS PLEASE. We need to eradicate this problem.

WE ASK: economic support for animal transportation and to be able to help them at the first critical moments. In the majority of the cases they are in a very precarious state, such as undernourished, dehydrated, full of fleas, wounded and/or ill. Any help is welcome, EVERYTHING IS VALUABLE to cover the necessities of these poor animals.

We hope to have reached you and you can join our cause! In Spain we aren't heard, I hope you can hear us.
