The shelter

The Protectora de Animales La Nucìa is a none-profit organization founded in 2007 dedicated to the collection of abandoned animals, to give them shelter and prepare them for a new life and find them a new home.

At this moment we have about 50 cats and 150 dogs.

Unfortunately the shelter is always full. Every year hundreds of animals are left abandoned, mistreated, malnourished, dehydrated trying to find a living wondering aimlessly on the streets where they are in serious jeopardy of getting run over in traffic, starving or succumbing to wounds and untreated illnesses.

We collaborate with the dutch Sphoek organization which helps us out finding new homes with nice families for our animals in both Spain and the Netherlands.


Our volunteers

Our volunteers

The shelter is run thanks to the selfless efforts made by volunteers. People who dedicate part of their time to helping out every way imaginable.

The vast majority of the animals in the shelter are dogs and cats that dont ask much but have a lot to give.
