Rudi is a German Shepherd cross around 7 years old who has had a very traumatic time. He was found by the police, abandoned on the beach in Aguilas with the most horrendous infection in both ears. This infection had been left untreated for so long he had to undergo a series of operations to remove the infected bone. He has recovered well and is now ready for a new loving home. He would be best in a home without other dogs, but is a very affectionate dog who loves cuddles and being brushed by all our volunteers. If you fancy giving him a home or just taking him for a walk please contact us using details below.

Trixie, Nellie and Alf – These three puppies are part of a litter of 7 found in a box in the blazing sun, dehydrated and close to death in July. They have been nursed back to good health and 4 of their siblings already have homes. Trixie is mostly black, Nellie is tan and white and they will always be small dogs.  Alf is part podenco with characteristic almond eyes and long legs, so will be taller than the girls. They are now about 3 months old and ready for loving homes. If you would like to meet them or walk them please contact us using the details below.

Monthly Dog Walk

Our next Sunday dog walk is at 10am on 7th October from our shelter just outside Aguilas. You can bring your own dog or walk one of our shelter dogs and then join us for a tasty hot breakfast in TJ’s Bar. Contact number below if you would like more details.

Desperately Seeking Foster Homes

We feel that the best option for our dogs is to live in a foster home before they find their forever homes, but we 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 675 467 647, through our Facebook page San Animal Santuario or via email to
