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 were based at Dolores. An old finca with land and buildings that have been converted into kennels, it served us well. However, the site was not designed for this purpose and was 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. In 2022 we were able to start the new build and in January 2024 we moved in to our new home there. However, there is still much to do – the last part of the build is not complete and we still need to do some landscaping, improve the walking areas and the vehicle access to the site.
Your support makes our work possible
If you wish to help, make a donation
Our new kennels are 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 have seen in Dolores. We 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.
We still need to raise funds to finish the project, provide landscaping, trees, and finish the approach road so any help you can give is much appreciated.
