Animal / Pets (cats dog etc) Welfare and Rescue on the Costa Blanca Spain Here is a list of various Animal Welfare groups on the Costa Blanca.
Asociación Protección y Educación Para los Animales – P.E.P.A.
Cami les Bases 73, Marxuqera, Palma de Gandia 46724, Valencia, España.
We are a group of people who are dedicated to the welfare of abandoned animals. We are not affiliated with any particular organisation, but we are ready to listen, and, wherever possible, help, either financially or with advice.
Probably the largest Spanish registered charity in Valencia. We are one of the few to be recognised by the R.S.P.C.A. We are self funding and operate by obtaining contracts with the Ayuntamientos of the towns and villages of the Safor region to collect abandoned animals normally sent to Valencia to a certain death. Our policy is never to destroy healthy animals and we work towards rehoming them wherever possible.

PAPAS, Pinoso Association for the Protection of Animals
PAPAs is a registered Charitable Association entirely run by volunteers. We are dedicated to the rescue and welfare of abandoned or cruelly treated animals in Pinoso, Spain. The Association works with the Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) of Pinoso to this end. It also works independently to help animals in other areas whenever possible.
K9 Club, La Marina
Here at the K9 club we rely solely on our wonderful members who are willing to foster the animals that we rescue. If we do not have any foster homes available then we are unable to save more animals from a torterous existence in the fields and village streets. Some of them will end their days in one of the Spanish dog pounds like Cereco in Crevillente.
