APASA was founded in 1999 by a group of various nationalities, Spanish, English, German and Swiss, with the aim of rescuing those animals that were evidently abandoned or ill-treated or lost. The Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) allocated land for this purpose and there were 23 dogs in 4 kennel areas of 3 x 4 metres square.
We rely greatly on volunteers, working in the shelter, walking dogs and at our many fund-raising events.
To help finance APASA
We organise events such as Fashion Shows, Quiz Nights, Dog Walks and trips such as shopping to IKEA and 5 nights in Asturias. Visit our Fundraising Events page for more info.
