The New Kennels!
Building our dream
Brick by brick
We are reaching our goal for the benefit of the dogs
For almost 20 years our kennels have been based at the current site in Dolores. An old finca with land and buildings that have been converted into kennels, it has served us well. However, the site was not designed for this purpose and by now is too small to meet all today’s requirements. Furthermore, it suffered considerable damage in the Gota Fria of 2019.
In 2014, thanks to a generous legacy, SAT acquired a site for new kennels in San Isidro and since then we have been working hard to raise the necessary funds to build on this new site. Now, in 2022, we finally have enough money to build Phase I of our new kennels and over the comings months you will be able to see our new building appearing on the site. We expect to move to this new site in the first quarter of 2023.
Our new kennels will be a very significant improvement on the current situation. The site is much larger and located in an area not prone to flooding in the same way that we see in Dolores. We will have modern, purpose-built accommodation for our dogs as well as areas for sick animals, room for veterinary examinations and treatment, grooming facilities, areas for potential adopters to meet their would-be pets, storage and offices.
Phase I will be exactly half of the complete project and will provide the left-hand block in the images above. The next task is to raise the funds to complete the project and build the right-hand block. You can help make this possible by making a donation here or in one of our shops.
