Los Infiernos is a small dog pound, around 10 minutes from the San Javier Military Airport.

Los Infiernos Perrera Supporters, informally known as LIPS, was originally set up in 2009 by Karin Patrick to support the refuge in rehoming dogs. Karin and her volunteers work with rescue centres in the UK, France and Germany to try to get the dogs forever homes. When they first started, they helped with the day-to-day running of the refuge.  It was felt they needed socialising, leash training and human interaction in order for the rehoming mission to be successful. This can be fun, but can be quite an emotional experience and we always need new people to help.

Los Infiernos has a ‘no kill’ policy, so the dogs and puppies headcount is forever on the increase; circa 250 at the moment! Dog walking days are Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 9am-1pm.

We have lots of dogs who have become ‘invisible’, having been in the perrera for years and it is our aim to rehome as many ‘long timers’ as possible this coming year. We have generous sponsors who subsidise transport costs for several dogs in an effort to get these poor souls a home. Two of our long termers are featured this month.

Every dog is neutered before it is rehomed, blood tested for Mediterranean diseases, vaccinated and have passports. We offer rescue back-up after adoption as we do realise it doesn’t always work out. All adoptions are subject to home checks.

The perrera is contracted to the councils of San Javier, Pilar de la Horadada, Guardamar, Torre Pacheco, Rojales, Alhama de Murcia, Cieza and San Pedro del Pinatar. However, additional funding is always needed as vets’ bills and food bills far exceed this income. Donations are gratefully received via Paypal to losinfiernosdogs@hotmail.com

A calendar, funded by sponsors, is 5€ in Spain or can be posted to the UK (add postage). For more information email losinfiernosdogs@hotmail.com  or message Facebook Los Infiernos Perrera Supporters.

The Facebook page has an album of Dogs for Adoption. 

Saving one dog won’t change the world, but for that one dog, the world will change forever.

Pip dob August 2015 – He has been in the shelter for years and we are desperate to let him experience life outside a cage. Pip always remembers the volunteers that walk him and gets very excited when he spots them. He likes chasing a ball or carrying a squeaky toy in his mouth during his walk and always comes back with more balls than he took out! He is a good boy with most dogs, but can react to another male top dog. 

Digby dob May 2015 – Full Sponsorship For Transport Costs

Digby also answer to Diggers or Mr Digby and has spent most of his life in the Perrera. He is THE most favourite with our volunteers who fight over him to take him out and he loves little kids, men & ladies, but he doesn’t like cats. Digby walks very well on a lead but he is in a cage by himself, so please help Digby find his forever home.
