Females available for Adoption
snoopy & molly.

SNOOPY (male) & MOLLY (female)
Handed into our Pizarra shelter, the owner returning to UK.
Molly DOB 03/04/2016... cross breed
Snoopy DOB 18/09/2010 cross breed.
Labrador cross Collie type and size
Neutered, Passported, Chipped, Fully vaccinated and Blood tested.
These 2 wonderful dogs really deserve better than this... but we agreed to take both to keep them together as losing their home and their owner all in one day was too much we thought.. at least they have each other for stability for this time in their lives.
We are doing our very very best to keep them happy and will do everything we can to find them loving stable homes ASAP.
IF YOU HAVE A FARM/FINCA AND COULD LET THESE DARLINGS BECOME A PART OF YOUR COUNTRY LIFE THEY WOULD BE SO GRATEFUL.
We are trying to keep them in Spain if possible so that we can easily monitor their progress.
Currently in our Pizarra shelter, Malaga, Spain

snow

SNOW (L) - FEMALE - RESERVED
Born 06/05/2019
Breed Dogo Argentino
Snow is passported, chipped, fully vaccinated, blood tested and neutered.
Snow has been taken in by our rescue as her owner no longer wanted her because he works too many hours and could no longer care for her.
She is the most loving, gentle, sweet girl, who has befriended all the shelter dogs and adores the volunteers, and looks forward so much to her daily walks where she runs and loves sniffing everything.
Because of Snows breed type you would need to obtain a PPP license and insurance and we are limited to adoptions within Spain.
Currently in Malaga.

RESCUE EXPLAINED: Author unknown:
The neglect changes you.
The abuse hardens you.
The suffering breaks you.
The ignorance angers you.
The indifference disturbs you.
The injustice destroys you.
On a daily basis…your faith will be tested.
Your heart will be wounded....
Your soul will be altered.
On a weekly basis…you’ll question yourself.
You’ll question your strength.
You’ll question the world.
On a monthly basis…you’ll fall down.
You’ll get up.
You’ll go on…
On a yearly basis…you’ll look back…
You’ll see faces…
You couldn’t save them.
You’ll learn to mourn.
To grieve.
To sob.
You’ll learn to trust a little less.
To do a little more.
To fight a little harder.
You’ll learn to try.
To hope.
To pray.
You’ll learn to fail.
To succeed.
To accept.
You’ll learn when to hold on.
When to give up.
When to let go.
You’ll learn who you are.
What you stand for.
Why that matters.
Then… at times… you’ll forget why you matter.
You’ll question what you’re doing.
You’ll wonder if it’s worth it.
But…here’s the good news…
When you forget…
When you question…
When you wonder…
All you have to do…
Is take a look around…
And you’ll see them.
You’ll see their faces.
You’ll see their smiles.
You’ll feel their love.
In their eyes, you’ll see their journeys…
You’ll remember their beginnings…You’ll know how far they’ve come…
You’ll remember when they didn’t know you…
When they didn’t trust you…When they’d given up.
You’ll remember how you healed them…
How you loved them…How they loved you, too.
And as you look back…
You’ll want to move forward…
For them… and because of them.
In your darkest hours, you’ll look around…To find the differences made…the hope given…and the lives saved…
Because you existed.
In those moments, when you look into their eyes…every doubt will be erased.
Every question will be answered.
Every worry will subside.
Because in that instant…in each of your hearts…
You both share the very same thought:
“Every bit of pain was worth it…for this moment here with you.”
And honestly…no matter what else happens…
Those moments hold all the strength you need…
To keep going.
Rescue is pain.
Rescue is joy.
Rescue is worth it…because they are worth it.
And that’s the honest truth.

AhĂ­ va mi casa!

Abandonado por el rĂ­o
¡Otro perro triste y solo!
No se sabe donde han ido sus dueños.
No le importaba mucho.
Es que la novedad se disipĂł.
Demasiados problemas, demasiada molestia
Pero lo que no sabe es
Su problema ya es problema de otro.

Tres semanas lleva este perro al lado del rĂ­o,
Sin comida, ni calor, ni refugio ni cuidado.
Es demasiado fácil arrojarle del coche
Y dejarlo allĂ­.

Cada paso de este perro es agonĂ­a
Con su pierna fracturada y retorcida
Pero ¿agoniza a su dueño con
Lo que ha hecho?
No, Ă©l ha resistido.

Quizás piensas que alguien bueno
Recogerá a este pobre perro
Y lo llevará al centro de recogidas de animales
Donde lo cuidarán y curarán.
Piénsatelo bien, piénsatelo bien
Porque ya están muy ocupados
Y no pueden salvar a todas las almas
Abandonadas que haya, ÂżSabes?

¡Piénsatelo bien antes de tener un perro!
Tiene su recompensa, pero es un trabajo permanente.
Sin embargo, él no te dejaría abandonado con miedo, ni te miraría con desdén
Él sería tu amigo fiel,
¡De por vida hasta su fin!

La conciencia es la clave Âżsabes?
Hoy día la conciencia de todos está dormida.
Pues no hay excusa para este acto.
Debería ir a la cárcel, ¡Es la verdad!

AllĂ­ afuera en el frĂ­o y la oscuridad,
Está solo, dolorido y perdido.
¿Quién le ayudará? ¿Quién lo salvará?
Ya que es sĂłlo un nĂşmero
Muerto en la escarcha.

Piénsatelo bien y acuérdate
De esa alma abandonada.
Esperaba tres largas semanas
Antes de ser encontrado muerto en un agujero.
Aprende la lecciĂłn, no hagas suposiciones.
¡Piénsatelo bien! ¡Piénsatelo bien!

Una poema por Natalie Galea

There goes my home!

Abandoned by the river
Another sad and lonely dog!
No telling where its owners gone
He didn't care for long.
The novelty wore off you see
Too much trouble, too much bother
But what he doesn't know is
His problem's onto another.

Three weeks now this dog's been at the river
No food, warmth, shelter or care
It's too easy though to throw him from the car
And leave him there.

Every step for this dog is agony
As his leg is fractured and twisted
But does his master agonise
With how he's acted?
No he's resisted!

Hopefully someone kind you may say
Will pick this poor dog up
And take it to the rescue place
Where they'll fix him up!
Think twice, do think twice
As they are busy as can be
And cannot save every soul
Abandoned out there you see!

Think twice before getting any dog!
It’s rewarding but a lifelong job.
Though, he would not dump you off and sneer
Or leave you out there in fear
He'd be your faithful friend,
For life until his end!

Conscience is the key you see
Everyone’s conscience these days is numbed.
Well there's no excuse for this act
It should be prison, that’s a fact!

Out there in the cold and darkness
He's alone, in pain and lost!
Who will help him, who will save him
Now he's just a number
Dead in the frost!

Think twice and recall
That poor abandoned soul.
A long three weeks he waited
Before being found dead in a hole.
Learn a lesson, don't reckon.
Think twice!  Think Twice!

A poem by Natalie Galea. Bor

DON’T FORGET THE OLD DOGS!!!
One by one they pass my cage,
Too old, too worn, too broken, no way.
Way past his prime he can't run and play,
Then they shake their heads slowly and go on their way.

A little old man, arthritic and sore,
It seems I am not wanted anymore.
I once had a home, I once had a bed,
A place that was warm, and where I was fed.

Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail,
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn't belong,
I got in their way, my attitude was wrong.

Whatever excuse they made in their head
Can't justify how they left me for dead.
Now I sit in this cage, where day after day,
The younger dogs get adopted away.

When I had almost come to the end of my rope,
You saw my face and I finally had hope.
You saw through the grey, and the legs bent with age,
And felt I still had life beyond the cage.

You took me home, gave me food and a bed,
And shared your own pillow with my poor tired head.
We snuggle and play, and you talk to me low,
You love me so dearly and want me to know.

I may have lived most of my life with another,
But you outshine them with a love so much stronger.
I promise to return all the love I can give,
To You, my dear person, as long as I live.

I may be with you for a week or for years,
We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears.
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave,
I know you will cry and your heart will grieve.

And when I arrive at the Bridge, all brand new,
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you.
And I will brag to all who will hear,
Of the person who made my last days so dear.
