About San Animal Santuario

San Animal Santuario is a Registered Charity started in 2010, set up by a group of animal lovers who share the desire to make a difference to abandoned cats and dogs in the Aguilas, Lorca and surrounding areas of south-east Spain. Since forming, we have been successful in the homing of many cats and dogs, largely helped by generous donations from our supporters and the general public.

Our small emergency dog shelter is set amid the beautiful countryside surrounding Aguilas. We can hold up to  5 dogs, until they find their forever family. Please take a look at the Hall of Fame and contact us for further information, if you think that you could provide a loving, permanent home.

Nora - was living in the campo and used to come to a local bar to scrounge for food. She was very skinny, hungry and scared but one of our volunteers fed her every day for two weeks until we finally caught her. She is now fully recovered, vaccinated, spayed and ready for her forever home. Nora is currently in our kennels and would benefit from a loving home. She is lovely sweet girl approximately 1.5 years old and 65 cm tall to shoulder height. She is a shy gentle girl who keeps her distance until she gets to know you but is then very loving and could be very loyal pet. She gets on well with other dogs and walks on a lead.

Lily - Small dog, born in June 2015, good with other dogs, castrated and ready for forever home. She has Leishmaniasis but this is under control with daily tablets.

Desperately Seeking Foster Homes

We feel that the best option for our dogs is live in a foster home before they find their forever homes but are currently short of fosterers. Foster placements can be for an agreed fixed period or on an ongoing basis. San Animal will cover all the expenses associated with the dog (vets bills, food etc) and can also arrange to provide holiday cover. Please consider taking a dog into your home – you can change its life.

If you would like to meet our dogs or be a fosterer please call or WhatsApp us on our dedicated phone - 675 46 76 47 - through our Facebook page 'San Animal Santuario' or via email to admin@sananimal.org
