Accion-del-sol Tenerife was open in July 2006 and is run by Marion Gonzalez and a small team of part -time staff. Accion is on the site of the ‘Institute for renewable energy’, Granadilla. The shelter has up to date kennels, a large area for the dogs to run around in with agility equipment and a modern surgery.
Marion believes in educating the public about animals and particularly children. School groups are regularly invited to the centre so they can learn about the dogs and how the rescue centre works. The Director also organises events.
Many of the dogs in the centre are transported to Germany to loving homes, but since animals can’t travel alone, Aktiontier needs people to travel with the dogs and are continually looking for willing helpers.
If you would like to volunteer at the shelter or accompany a dog to Germany, please ring or email.
