More volunteers are needed to assist with cat trapping, dog & cat collecting, dog walking at the kennels, help cleaning the cats at the kennels. Full support will be given. Contact the kennels if interested please 9am to 5pm (Monday to Friday) on 667 638 468.

Volunteers are also required for box collections and help at the various sales and events held by both organisations. Further information from Pat the Cat on 608 121 081.

Due primarily to the ‘credit crunch’ K9 and other refuges are feeling the effects of more cats and dogs needing to be re-homed. Please think carefully before taking on a pet – dogs and cats need to have their injections up to date, six months prior to leaving Tenerife. It is also very expensive to take them back to the UK. If our kennels are full please contact the police (Tel 112) in the district you reside (as a last resort).

K9 also have a Computer expert, 2 skilled seamstresses, a TV engineer and 2 experienced Dog Walkers/Sitters, who offer special prices to other K9 supporters for any work undertaken.
