The Asociación Animalista de Llucmajor is a non-profit organization that was created in Llucmajor in 2004 by Mertxe, with the mission of saving dogs and cats abandoned mainly in the area of Llucmajor, Mallorca. Since then, thousands of dog and cat friends have passed through the shelter and were lucky enough to find a family.
We are a totally independent organization that does not receive subsidies from official organizations nor political parties. Thanks to the donations, the support of our volunteers and partners, we managed to continue with our work and sustain the shelter.
The cats and dogs that arrive at the shelter stay until they find a family. We never sacrifice them unless they have a terminal -incurable- illnesses and are suffering.
Our work includes:
• Sterilization: the furry friends rescued from the streets and pounds, when welcomed at our shelter in Llucmajor, are neutered, vaccinated and given a home.
• Rescue of dogs and cats: we save our furry friends from the street or from the kennels, or we welcome them when their owners cannot take care of them.
• Social activities: we collaborate with social services. For example, we are visited by young people with integration problems, to receive pet therapy.
• Awareness and education: we give speeches to children from 3 to 16 years of age, to educate them about animal welfare, to be aware of the problems of abandoned and mistreated pets, in the hope of creating a better world.
• Sterilization campaign: throughout the year we carry out campaigns to neuter street cats (cat colonies).
You cannot buy a friend, adopt him! Come and visit us, we’ll be happy to provide you with more information and introduce you to our furry friends.
