A single bite from an infected mosquito can cause your dog to get heartworm which will lead to a very slow and painful death.

We can never stress enough the importance of treating your dog monthly with special drops to their neck or with a tablet or a yearly injection.

Over 60 per cent of the dogs that arrive at the refuge test positive for heartworm. This is a very costly and uncom-fortable treatment for the dog but one of utmost importance to prevent pain and suffering to the dogs in our care. We guarantee every dog has all the necessary injections, microchip, passport and a clean bill of health before our dogs are up for adoption. We do not charge for adopting a dog but donations are welcomed towards the ongoing rising costs of running the refuge.

Lithunian spotlight

Help at the refuge comes to us in many ways. Last week Mrs Canary Island aka Karolina Loceryte from Lithuania and her two sons have been visiting the refuge to raise awareness of the dire situation here in Tenerife.

Our refuge along with others is full of dogs who through no fault of their own are all desperately looking for a new loving home. We can never stress enough the importance of sterilising or castrating your dog to avoid unecessary puppies. Adverti-sing is the most important thing we can do to help rehome the dogs of which Karolina is helping to do.

Without the constant help and support of our dedicated volunteers especially our dog walkers who bring so much fun and love to the dogs that they walk , it all helps to give the best life we can to the dogs in our care.

Your help

Please do call the refuge on 922778630 if you can help in any way. We are always in need of tinned dog food for our older dogs blankets, towels, sheets, dog toys, and collars and leads.

If you have any of the above to spare they would be very much appreciated at the refuge, or visit Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons from 14.00-17.00pm and Saturdays 13.00- 16.00. We are situated directly next to the Eolica Parque exit 51b on the TF1 north bound which is after the after the El Medano junction and junction 52 south bound . Head for the giant windmills on the coast and we are the buildings on the right hand side or email the refuge at teneriffa@aktion-tier.org or visit our Facebook page “action tier Accion del Sol
