Your support is essential

‘Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to include all living creatures, the whole of nature and its beauty’ – Albert Einstein.

That is what we seek in El Hogar Animal Sanctuary, a world where compassion is a daily theme, where all living beings are united with the same goal: that ALL of them survive.

To be able to carry out efficient work and offer a second opportunity to many animals, we rely on you. Surely you have something in your house that you don’t use anymore and you are ready to throw it out; don’t do it! Contact us because we might need it.

Below we have a list of the things that we need at the moment. For any queries, don’t hesitate to contact us by writing to: [email protected]
