  1. Sonia and Rita are two of our fourteen shop volunteers with five of our dogs before they begin their journey to new lives in uk. Charlie the german shepherd was found in a semi starving state in the fields near the urb. Cindy and Gina were abandoned at someone's gate at the top of Barbarroja. Pipa the podenco was wandering the main roads. Jake was one of three dogs left in a garden when their owners abandoned them and the house. All the volunteers do what they do so we can find these dogs new lives wherever that may be. Anyone want a dog don't worry we have plenty more but for these five the wait is over.

  2. HOVAR Contributes to Cat Sterilisation Programme


    Dogs at Large organised a lunch at Monte Alto on 21st Feb to raise funds for a Cat Sterilisation Programme. HoVAR Committee allocated 500€ towards the programme with the money being paid directly to the Vet Rebbecca in the village to cover the costs towards the programme. In total over 1500€ was raised at the function and this will go a long way to moving this programme along in the Hondon Valley Area. Chairman Colin Buck made the announcement at the function and the contribution was greatly appreciated. Rebbecca the vet informed us that the 500€ had now been fully used so we will hope to see improvements in the numbers of feral cats in the area. This has been a great opportunity for animal charities in the area to work together for the benefit of animal welfare.


    Dog Sterilisation Programme


    HOVAR will shortly launch a dog sterilisation programme in the area of Nieves, Frailes and La Romana. This will also include chipping of dog to owner. Further details will shortly be published about the programme and the criteria of eligibility which we will hope to commence in the next month or two. We expect to have good support from the local Town Halls who will also assist us where they can.

  3. Rupert was rescued from a reservoir by Danny and the local police. He was and is frightened of people. He has been looked after by Kay and Steve for the last couple of months. Still very nervous of people. A big softie he is and has shown no aggression to anyone or other dogs in spite of his frightened state. Today he left for the UK where he is going to a lady who will spend the time needed to rehabilitate him before he goes to a home. Thanks to everyone who has helped with him and made this possible.
