About Axarquia Animal Rescue

AAR is a registered charity dedicated to saving lives and re-homing abused and abandoned animals found in the Axarquia area of Southern Spain. We rely on donations and the income from our Charity Shop to enable us to carry out our work. Our monthly vet and kennel bills are usually in the region of 4000 euros.

Founded in August 2011 by Teresa Dainty, we have grown into a large group of volunteers who are dedicated to saving lives and rehoming abused and abandoned animals found in the Axarquia area of Southern Spain.

Our mission statement, laid out in our articles of association, is to:

  • Help stray and abandoned animals in crisis and find them foster and forever homes
  • Provide a forum, via Facebook and our website, to encourage and raise awareness of the plight of abandoned and stray animals in the Axarquia region
  • Provide a forum, via Facebook and our website, to help find lost pets within the Axarquia region
  • Provide support and advice to people who find stray and abandoned animals in the Axarquia region
  • Actively encourage and facilitate neutering programmes within the Axarquia region
  • Actively promote responsible pet ownership within the Axarquia region

If you would like to know more, are interested in adopting or fostering, or just want to help then please contact us.
