Press release submitted by Karen Clack

 Marion Gonzalez (director of accion-del-sol) and the Major signing the agreement

The " Centro de Protección animal y medioambiental de Tenerife " better known as “Acción del Sol” from the German charity Aktion tier has now formed a collaboration with Arona which commences on the 25th of January 2011. “Acción del Sol” when it opened 5 years ago was a pilot project for the south of Tenerife giving first a home to... about 200 dogs who had to leave Arico. Some of these older dogs are still at the refuge and would love new homes but people always prefer the cute little pups or smaller dogs. 
The town hall of Granadilla de Abona has official rules and strategies that need to be inforced, with the conclusion of signing up with Aktion tier. Due to the success, good understanding of animal welfare the town halls San Miguel de Abona and Guia de Isora joined in the same way and with the same conditions. The town hall of Arona has followed “Acción del Sols” success over the years and realised that they also need to raise there profile and collaborate. Legislation has become more prominent with the ever increasing numbers of abandoned and mistreated dogs. 

When the dogs arrive at Acción del Sol two vets will treat them for any injuries or illness. They also will be defleed, bathed, wormed, micro chipped, sterilised or castrated, pass ported, inoculated, fed and cared for, socialised and then rehomed. Acción del Sols policy is to rehome as many dogs as possible to new loving homes either here or in Germany. Accion Del Sol is always looking for people that are travelling too Germany to act as hosts and travel with a rescue dog. Please contact the refuge on 922778630 if you would like to help. 

The refuge is preparing to double its intake of dogs over the next year so therefore more rehoming is vital as well as help and support from the public. If you would like to help the refuge in anyway then please call 922778630, they would very much welcome, dog toys, sheets and towels anything what helps for a better life for the dogs. We are also collecting, furniture big or small, household goods, bric a brac, clothes etc to enable us to raise via Tenerife Auction Rooms and Car boot sales much needed funds to help with the enormous costs of running the refuge.

A few dates for your diary, our next big fund raising event will be on the 10th of April which will be our Spring party, more information to follow shortly.
Due to the huge success of last years Teide Challenge we are repeating this sponsored event again on the 20th of May, anyone that would like to partake then please contact Karen on 687905511 for more information.
We also have our Pets Portrait Competition in conjunction with The Tenerife Forum CLICK HERE, please do submit pictures of your pets which will end in an exhibition and competition.

The refuge is open Monday- Friday 3-6pm and it is situated at exit 51 on the TF1, directly next to ITER, the Eólica Windmill park for new energy. Granadilla Póligono Industrial Estate.
Please do take the time to visit Acción del Sol; it is a first class refuge where the care of the dogs is second to none. Together we can help to ease the chronic situation here in Tenerife, the dogs have suffered enough, now is the time for change. Together we can make a difference to animal welfare here in Tenerife if we all work together to improve the situation for the dogs.
