Poochies Pet Hotel was first opened in 2008 by Pete and Fiona after a cancelled trip to the UK, due to unsuccessfully looking for a Pet Hotel for their own two dogs Poochie ( Pressa, a Canarian breed) and Thumper ( A little Yorkie).
Pete and Fiona looked at six different Hotels but were not happy with any of them, so they decided after a discussion with Eugenio from Live Arico , whom they help out with raising funds etc, to move from their Villa in the Golf to a big Finca in El Rio, and run a Pet Hotel as if their own pooches where staying there...!
Poochies Hotel specialise in quarantine for the UK......
Pete explains "When someone has to go back to the UK and can't afford to take their dogs even though they love them, we will help by looking after their dogs and getting flight boxes and help raise the money to get their dogs home."
Pete and Fiona also help out K9, Dingo dogs and Acontier by rehoming dogs. Finding attractive looking dogs or pedigree dogs from the shelters, they then take about 6 or 7 dogs at a time and clean bath and clip them, de flea and worm them, then try to get them new homes........
Pete explains "The reason we do this is because some people would certainly take a scruffy dog away from a rescue shelter to give them a second chance, but some people won't take a dog from a shelter because they look ill and dirty and may bring germs into their homes"
Poochies have a 5000m2 fenced play area as well as spacious, purpose built kennels with their own runs. The dogs in their care are walked twice daily or as per their normal routine, and short or long term care is provided as well as vet visit
Tenerife dogs definately gives the thumbs up to Poochies Pet Hotel they not only care about the dogs that come to stay with them for a short stay but also care deeply about the abandoned dogs of Tenerife..!
