There is a great shortage of kibble  in our refugio, ... ordinary kibble but also puppy kibble.
With so many followers, it should be possible to collect and send a nice amount to Spain.
For information about a collection point near you, you can mail to

Thank you very much, on behalf of our dogs !!!

Dear colleague volunteers,

Unfortunately, as you have already heard, the SHIN day is not going ahead.
Therefore, I would like to invite you instead to the ACE day in the Netherlands.
We realize that this is for many of you a long way away but we wanted to remind you of this alternative opportunity to meet the Spanish team andto have a nice day with each other and your dogs.

It is a great time to meet your fellow Dutch volunteers.
The location is a large field belonging to a sports association that is fully enclosed.
The dogs are able to walk around and enjoy playing with each other.
There will also be some stalls and workshops.

For more information about the day, it's easiest to follow the events page on Facebook

If you do not have Facebook then you can email me and I will email you the program.
The entrance fee for this day is € 7.50 for adults and € 5.00 for children - dogs are of course free :-)
The address is Kalverlandseweg 2a 4024 BT Eck en Wiel.
To sign up, send an email to with how many people and dogs you are bringing.

We hope to welcome you all on this cozy day!

Heartfelt greetings,
The ACE team

Arrival this afternoon in Rotterdam

Hanne was a bit insecure, but was soon lovingly enclosed in the arms of his adopters! Romera was fine and went off happily! Luna too! Rieneke was almost cuddled to death ! and is going into fostercare. Hanne's adoptee brought a lot of food for the dogs in Spain.

Arrival at Schiphol June 18th

It took a while before Claudia, Kenzo, Paloma and Chiqui Bruno landed on Schiphol. The owners were very patient,  but at 3:20 the doors in the hall opened and there they were finally there.

Chico the Molecatcher!

For Chico (ACE Wesley) that was the tenth mole this season !!! Chico is simply phenomenal, the most social dog I have ever encountered. Everyone, man or dog loves him, even difficult dogs can handle him. In addition to moles he also hunts mice and rats - just a real terrier. A better dog you simply could not find.
