Back Accion del Sol’s Xmas campaign with a doggie shoebox 

We have again been very busy with our Educational Programme with children coming from the many surrounding schools and colleges to help the children understand the basic care and welfare needs in the attempt to improve the crisis here on the island.

With our’s and other refuges full off unwanted dogs we need to educate the children so they understand the importance of adopting not buying a dog and having the dogs castrated or sterilised to prevent more puppies.
With Christmas only around the corner we have again started a campaign after the success of last year to ask our friends and supporters of Accion Del Sol to donate a shoe box of goodies for the dogs such as tinned dog food for our older dogs and puppies, puppy milk, dog toys , dog collars and leads.
Marion and her team do such an amazing job at the refuge so I thought it would be great to bring some Christmas cheer to the 200 plus dogs at the refuge. You can deliver your box personally to the refuge by the 20th of December during the below opening hours or call 687905511 to arrange for your donations to be collected.
Please do write your name on the box so that we know who kindly donated to the dogs. We would like to thank you in advance for your help and support.
We have 200 gorgeous dogs that are desperately seeking loving new homes so please adopt not buy a dog. The situation here in Tenerife is extremely bad for the dogs. We desperately need to find adoptions for the dogs in our care. We do not charge for adoptions but donations are very welcome towards the vast running costs of the refuge. Every dog is fully vaccinated, microchipped,fully inoculated,heartworm and flea free and passported as well as castrated or sterilised so you can ensure your new dog has the best start to its new life.
Please do call the refuge on 664321219 between the hours of 8am -17.00 if you can help in any way. We are always in need of tinned dog food for our older dogs, puppy milk, blankets, towels, sheets, dog toys, 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.
The dogs especially enjoy a gentle walk down to the beach for a cooling paddle in the sea. So please do come and walk the dogs if you have some time to spare. We are situated directly under the Eolica Parque exit 52 on the TF1 north bound which is after the after the El Medano junction . Head for the giant windmills on the coast and we are the buildings on the right hand side or email the refuge at teneriffa@aktiontier.org or visit our Facebook page
