Get Involved.

APASA is a non-profit organisation which is funded by contributions and donations from supporters, the organisation of events, sales in the APASA charity shop and by the Ayuntamiento de Xabia. These contributions are essential.


At APASA we take care of the animals, veterinary expenses, special food requirements and special medical treatments. Aside from this, we have expenses such as cleaning supplies and other products needed for the daily tasks at the shelter.


Since 1999 over 11000 dogs entered the shelter, of which most were reunited with their owners and about 5700 have been adopted into wonderful loving homes since then. The Town Hall, the Ayuntamiento, provides us with some financial support, but we heavily depend on the generosity of our supporters for the daily running costs of the shelter.


There are many ways in which you can help us at APASA. Below are some of the ways you can help us at APASA. Have any different proposal? Get in contact with us. 


All dogs need plenty of exercise, socialising and spending time outside their kennels. There are a large number of dogs who need a walk. At APASA we are always looking for willing and committed volunteers to take one or more dogs for a walk through the surrounding orange groves.


What to do if you want to volunteer? Come to APASA anytime between 10:00-13:00 and 15:00-18:00, from Monday to Sunday. Bring along a valid documentation. You will be requested to fill out a simple form. A member of APASA will explain to you the rest.
