News and appeal from Accion del Sol 


Accion del Sol’s educational programme continued in earnest with children aged between three and six from Charco del Pino all visiting the refuge.

A fun and educational day helped the children to understand the care and welfare needs of our four- legged friends, hopefully ensuring better conditions for our beloved pets in the future here in Tenerife.

Spring normally means the time of year when we all have the cleaning bug. If you are having spring clean and would like to donate items to the refuge, then please call the number below to arrange collection of donated items.

Handicraft items, chil-dren’s crayons and paint are always needed with so many children visiting the refuge as well as towels, blanket, sheets, collars, leads and dog toys for the refuges many dogs. Everything at the refuge is predominately made from donated and recycled building materials so again if you have any spare materials to donate then please contact the refuge.

The importance of micro-chipping your pet proved itself when two dogs were brought in to the refuge. Luckily they were both reunited with their very happy owners so please do ensure your pet is micro-chipped and the information correct and up to date so there can be a quick return of your pet in case they accidentally get lost.

There are more than 200 dogs at the refuge all seeking new homes but perhaps you are not able to commit to adopting a dog. In this case, we are always looking for dog walkers to walk the dogs in the beautiful surrounding areas of the refuge. If you would to be involved, then please again contact the refuge or visit at the appo-inted opening hours and make a dog or two very happy.

Please call 922778630 for more information or if you would like to help out in anyway; towels and blankets are always needed for the dogs if you have any to spare. They would be very much appreciated by our four legged friends. The refuge is situated at Poligono De Industrial Estate, Granadilla, Exit 51 on the TF1, directly next to ITER the Parque Eolica where the windmills are and it is open to the public Monday, Tuesday,Thursday, Friday 14.00-17.00pm and Saturdays 13.00-16.00 .
