Wonderful Hanos needs an operation - he's so brave. Would you like to help him get better?


Hanos,...only his leg,...


Hanos was saved from a killing station. Almost impossible to believe that he was just dumped there for he is a great, sweet and special dog. He is very focussed on people and animals and always, but always happy. He will put his head on your lap, will give you kisses out of happines and steals everybodys heart.

He came in and at first we didn't notice it, because he had no pain, but recently we saw that there was something with his leg. We saw that he was sometimes not using his leg so then we went to Carlos, our traumatologist. He discovered that Hanos had an old fracture that was now giving Hanos trouble. It seems he has  Atrodesis Carpo and on top of that, Osteotomia Corectora. 

The examinations, x-ray and surgery will cost approximately €850 and we are asking for help, who can help Hanos? Could you help? Could you get together with friends to help? We'd be so grateful for Hanos and he would be too.

Dog of the Day: beautiful grey Grey!

This good looking guy came from a breeder, where all he knew was the four walls of a small dog kennel. As a resut, Grey is a frightened and very insecure dog around people and situations that are strange to him. Only natural. He doesnt bite, but unexpected sounds and things scare him and he tries to run. 

 Gray needs someone with a lot of patience, who is experienced with dogs. Grey is a fantastic, beautiful young dog with a lot of potential, but he will need time and work. He is evolving well and starting to relax with us.

 Because of his insecurity, we do not want to place him in a family with small children. Where there is a will, there is a way, so we hope to see Grey in a new family, who understand him and will give him the necessary time to explore our beautiful world. Who will take care of our Grey? And help him blossom in a life full of love and trust.

Arrivals: Rotterdam 26th August

Yesterday 3 dogs were picked up from Spain. The sweet little Petronella slept peacefully in her travel bag. Wald was happy too to be in Rotterdam. Ibaar took a little convincing and was a bit tense because of all the excitement. But he will soon settle down.

You will get useful tips and exercises to take home and work on together! The workshop takes about 25 minutes. After the workshop, each participant receives a handout with all the information from the exercises.

Albertito: waiting outside the Mercadona ...


From Fabienne's Diary.
Today - August 27th

foto van Ace-charity Fabienne Paques.

Albertito was a dog that apparently alllowed to come almost everywhere with his boss, including to the Mercadona supermarket, where people go grocery shopping every day. He was tied up with his lead at the door, and there he stood without supervision or the protection of his owner, waiting for her. To me, leaving your dog outside the supermarket is unthinkable. when you think of how many dogs get stolen these days. You're not going to risk it, are you?

But there stood Albert, watching all the people going shopping, going inside and out again. But his owner did not appear. And then the supermarket closed. The Police were called and he was brought to the killing station, where his days, due to his age, would be numbered -  if he had not been saved by us.

He is a great fellow, good with all his 4-legged friends here, both cats and dogs, a humble little guy who, despite everything, is happy to be safe. But he should be living somewhere where he can be himslef. He does not understand why his boss didn't come back ... And we can not explain it to him either.  He puts his old snout into your hand and looks at you with his sweet eyes ... How could this happen to him?

Looking for a gift?

If you are looking for a nice gift for someone or just for yourself ... take a look at our ACE shop.
Or even if you have fun things you'd like to sell to help our dogs, we'd love to hear from you too! Please get in touch with pr.nederland@ace-charity.org

Dominique: all she needs is a lot of love and a little patience



Dominique is a young dog who was found on the streets and was brought to Amalia, one of our loving Spanish foster moms. Other dogs are no problem to this little brownie but people do need to have some patience with her. She suffered badly, that's clear, you can always tell - but once you've captured her heart she will follow you wherever you go, she will become your best friend! 

In stressful situations she still gets anxious and she dares to snap, out of insecurity, but never towards her master because he is her guardian angel. Dominique needs somebody who wants to put her on the right path, who wants to give her confidence in life. Somebody who understands her and is willing to give her time. 

She is still young, not yet four, so with a little bit of patience and a gentle approach she will melt. Where there is a will, there is a way. Who wants to take care of this little girl? She will be infinitely grateful! There's more information on her page.


Why on earth is Brody still looking for his golden basket?



Just look at him? Why on earth has this dear chap still not been adopted?

You don't notice him in a big group because Brody is an inconspicuous, young black doggie...a simple chap who clearly has inherited the good Labrador gens. He is playful and gets along well with the other dogs. We noticed Brody in the killingstation and we know by experience that black dogs are not in demand here. 

We took this young dog with us as quickly as possible because his life was in danger. He's been with us for three and a half years, since he was nearly 18 months old - no fault of his own, who knows why this lovely dog has not been adopted yet. 

He is currently in a lovely foster home in the Netherlands. But three and a half years is long enough. Brody is growing up; he's looking for a forever owner, as soon as possible. This chap has a lot of potential; he will surely become a loyal, inquisitive and affectionate mate for his new owner, 

For the fan of black who wants to give Brody a new chance to find happiness... please take  look at his information and lovely videos - here


Loving, loyal and intelligent. That's Brody.

Fabienne's Dog of the Week: Albabina



Albabina, now called Donna has been staying in the Netherlands for some time now. She is incredibly sweet and is doing very well.  The foster family has since taken in a second dog and Albabina gently welcomed it and accepted it. And she also saw it leaving for its very own home, its forever home. So now, who has a home for her?  This good girl deserves it! She's looking for a boss or a family who will enjoy walking with her. She listens well and is good with other dogs and will probably get used to cats. Will you visit her? Please do. She so deserves her own home. For more information please click here. You will read about the horrible start in life she had and how she has responded to the love and care from her first forster mum in Spain, Isabeleke, and from her Belgian foster home.

Sharmi - sweet, gentle - after two years, she so deserves a forever home



The latest update for our sweet Sharmi was dated 12th May, this year, 2017. This cute Sharpei lady, currently in fostercare in Belgium, is still waiting for a nice forever home. Good food (she really likes everything), a little love and a little walk - Sharmi doesn't ask for much. She loves people a lot and can't get enough of asking for hugs from anyone crossing her path. After all those years of neglect she is so grateful with some attention. She is also as soft as a bear and can look incredibly sweet so that you give in every time :) 

Sharmi is a sensitive soul and a consistent but gentle approach is necessary. She knows the basic commands like bowl, sit, wait and paw. She has already walked in a safe place, but she is comforatble around other animals, such as cats, rabbits or horses, and so far they don't bother her. She is fine on the flexilead. She's good with other dogs, as long as they are not too active or dominant. She does not like them to come into her personal space and snuggle up to her. 

With our chihuahuas she is amazing, very soft and tolerant. The smallest ones are really fond of her and can even sleep on top of her back. With other dogs she has an attidude that's something like "you leave me alone and I'll leave you alone". She just wants do do her own thing. Therefore she needs to be placed as the only dog in the family. 

Her body is sadly showing some signs of her terrible past. In addition to some scars, she suffers from chronic ear infections. This is now under control, but her ears must be cleaned regularly. Just a little cleaner or ointment in her ears a few times a week, no more than that. As if this was not enough, she also has a thickening of her mammary gland. At the moment, this remains stable and there is no reason to be worried. 

Who will take this treasure home and gives her the care and love she deserves? It's not Sharmi's fault she was born in the wrong place. This poor unfortnate really deserves the very best home!

Sus needs a home so badly - who will make this sweethearts life complete?

A killing station is no place for any dog ...

Two poodles brought in, inseperable


Moetsie and Poetsie are inseparable.  Two sisters who have spent their lives together, gone everywhere together and were known by everyone who saw them out with their owner. Even now, they will come to you. They are used to people and to being treated nicely.


But their owner became ill and they ended up in the cold, hostile killing station, where they clung together. They sat apathetically, leaning against each other in that sad cage. They had no idea what had happened to them, why they were in that horrible place. 

When we took them away from there, their little bodies were wriggling with happiness, relief and thankfulness. In they car they sat on our laps and you could see them starting to relax again. Now they are with us and of course they are together in the same cage. But they shouldn't be there. they don't belong here. 

They are fragile litle princesses. Quiet, sweet dogs. We would love for them to find a home where they can stay together. They are truly inseperable. If one of them has to go to the vet, the other will be in a total panic. So sad to see that. 

Moetsie and Poetsie belong together. It's obvious. They are really hoping to find a true, warm basket. Together for ever.  For more informaton about these two darlings, please click on their names below their photographs.
