Founded by Irene and Steve Allan, Hope for Podencos is situated in Albacete, Spain
Most podencos are rescued from Gran Canaria and the mainland of Spain. Once safe at Hope for Podencos, all Podencos receive medical care and are assessed and matched with their new families. They are neutered/castrated over 6 months, receive worm and flea treatment and a full blood test before travel.
Hope for Podencos does not distinguish between age and mix, Podenco mixes, senior Podencos as well as puppies are all welcome.
Most Podencos are abandoned in fields and by the roadside or brought to killing shelters after having served their hunter well.
Podencos can be adopted in countries such as the UK, France, Germany,The Netherlands, Czech Republic, USA and Canada where full back up is available if the adoption does not go as planned.
We have recently launched our Facebook online shop where you can soon purchase our fabulous 2019 calendar amongst many other wonderful gifts and items for yourself!
We have many ways in which you can support our charity and these beautiful dogs, our new Venture Give a Pod a Life Project where we are trying to raise funds for our new centre, our Hope for Podencos Food Fund where we ask for monthly donations to care for our Pods awaiting adoption and our Amazon Wish Lists (UK and US) for purchases as often or as little as you would like for the bits and bobs we need as they come up. A special form of collaboration is to participate in our Virtual Adoption program and become the sponsor of one of the animals that live in the rescue centre or are reserved in the perrera. Finally, we have a Longer-Term Foster Project we hope some of our supporters can help with to introduce our Podencos to family and life experiences before they go into their Forever Homes.
