SOS Animals Switzerland

Sarah from SOS Animals Switzerland during a visit to the Spanish shelter

We set up SOS Animals Switzerland in May 2015 after returning from our last working holiday volunteering at SOS Animals Spain. The desperate plight of these beautiful dogs, many who had suffered horribly at the hands of man, overwhelmed us. What also struck us was how tirelessly our friends who ran the shelters worked in their never ending battle to rescue, care for and hopefully one day home these wonderful dogs.

SOS Animals Switzerland works alongside SOS Animals Spain with the aim to bring some dogs from the overloaded refuges in Spain into forever homes here in Switzerland. SOS has a ‘no kill’ policy and guarantee love and care shelter to all the dogs lucky enough to find space at the shelter. Many also find a forever home. These are the lucky ones—many end up in killing stations or suffer at the hands of the hunters once they are no longer of ‘use.’

Please consider a rescue dog from Spain. By homing a shelter dog, you are in fact saving two lives—the dog that comes to live with you and the dog who takes the vacated kennel.
