Accion-del-sol and Tenerife's Association for disabled people

Accion Del Sol was very honoured last week to welcome visitors from Amisur in San Miguel.  Amisur is one of the south of Tenerifes Associations for disabled people. A group of adults and there carers paid there first visit to the refuge and it was a huge success. There response to the dogs and puppies was amazing, it was great to see so many happy smiling faces. The dogs and puppies were extremely well behaved. We look forward to welcoming more people from Amisur next year, we firmly believe that animals really do help people with disabilities.

 Our Educational Roadshow ended with having spoken to almost 3000 school children in Arico, Granadilla and Arona, many of the children have since been to the refuge with there parents and we have even found a few new homes for some of the many dogs at the refuge. We plan next year to visit more schools here in the south of Tenerife with our Educational Roadshow. We really work hard and we are very committed to educate children as well as castrating / sterilising every dog that comes into the refuge to make a difference to animal welfare here in Tenerife.

 In January after all the festivities are over we plan to start a " Puppy and Pony club " once a month at the refuge. This will be held on a Saturday morning, the first one being the 28th of January 10.30 - 13.00 and will be open to children aged 5 upwards. We plan to have a fun but educational morning teaching the children basic animal care and the chance for them to play with the puppies and small dogs as well as pony rides . The cost for the club is 5e which will all go to Accion Del Sol towards there many escalating costs for the dogs in there care. Please call 687905511 for more information and toreserve your child's place. Parents are welcome to join in or maybe you would to walk one of the many refuge dogs whilst your child is participating at the club.

We have so many gorgeous dogs at the refuge all looking for new homes, we work very hard to try and adopt as many dogs as possible here in Tenerife or in Germany, last week 12 lucky dogs have been adopted with another 6 dogs safely flown to Germany to start there new lives, but almost every day more and more dogs are being brought into the refuge from the streets of Granadilla, Guia De isora and Arona.
We would like to thank every single person over the last year that in one way or another has helped Accion Del Sol with there plight here in Tenerife to help stray and abandoned dogs and to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

 Accion Del Sol will be open there normal hours Monday - Friday 3-6pm over the festive season.   The refuge is situated at Poligono De Industrial Estate, Granadilla, Exit 51 on the TF1, directly next to ITER the  Parque Eolica where the windmills are.  The refuge has seen a large increase in dogs over the last few months so if you are looking for a dog to adopt then please do pay the refuge a visit or call Accion Del Sol on 922778630
