Sweet Sientje having a little sit down. A friendly, curly and affectionate
Perro de Agua, she is only ten months old and would love a forever home
Laundry, laundry - always laundry. El Refugio is spotless. This is my home from
home when I'm volunteering. It's an open area with lots of dogs running around. Bliss.
Even more laundry. Why so much? There are soft fleeces for the puppy baskets,
blankets for the cages, sheets from the clinic and more towels than you could ever imagine.
Filomon and his sister Filomene were dumped at the killing station. These
lively, bouncy puppies are three months old and just looking for that special family.
This is Filomene. Like her brother Filomon she is three months old and a
Podenco cross. She's going to grow up to be even more beautiful than she is already.
Hein is also three months old. Look at that sweet face. He was 'found' near the
garbage bins with his mother Hermina and his brother Hubert. How could people do this!
And this is Hein's brother, Hubert. They are short haired cross
breeds. They are both quiet, gentle souls and they deserve a lot of love.
Hubert looking. Having a little think.
Playing. Is that an insect that needs a pat, perhaps?
What's that I can see? Is that Lisa with dinner?
Lisa, one of the hard working staff members who help keep El Refugio going.
Surrounded, as always, by friends. And who knows, there may be treats in there.
This is Alicia. Camping out near the office. This is where the students
have their lunch. And they are very generous with the bit's that get 'dropped'.
There's always something going on and plenty of inquisitive faces. Here
Boyke, Narcisa, Shira, Hester and Risas are checking it out. 'What's happening?'
Hester, having forty winks. she's a Mastin Espagnol, a big dog with a heart
to match. She was dumped by her boss so she's now a bit timid but so loving.
