It’s time to order your 2019 Hope for Podencos Calendar! The calendar contains twelve spectacular images— a celebration of our rescue Podencos large and small. All proceeds go towards the building of the new kennel block (The Suzannah Stacey Saving the Gran Canaria Podencos Memorial Kennels) which is so desperately needed for us to continue our work. Our calendars were held hostage in customs until January 2019, thank you everyone for their patience. Please get in touch if you still would like to order!

Calendars are only €12 plus postage and are available in the UK, Europe, USA and Canada.

Please e-mail us to order (hopeforpodencos@outlook.com). Thank you!

As the temperature starts to drop, the Podencos are starting to feel the cold! It gets very cold in the area of Spain where the centre is located and we are struggling to keep the Podencos warm. They desperately need coats (or homes before winter).

Do you have any dog coats that you don’t really need? Or perhaps you have too many of them? Or maybe you have a knack for sewing and can make dog coats? Or perhaps you work for a company that makes dog coats and they have extra factory seconds that are able to be donated?

Please contact us! All sizes are needed as we have Podencos large and small.

Feel free to visit our Podencos for Adoption page on our website to see the sizes of the current dogs at our centre.

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.
