Welcome to P.A.P.A.s Pinoso


PAPASWelcome to the NEW official website of the Pinoso Association for the Protection of Animals (PAPAs). 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.

Founded in April 2008, PAPAs is now  one of the largest dog welfare charity in Pinoso. Our mission is to bring about the day when all dogs in Spain can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction. PAPAs is a officially registered and legal association in the Generalitat Valenciana, Alicante. PAPAs is also registered with the Pinoso Ayuntamiento.

We are delighted that our Donations link is now repaired! If you have been wanting to donate but have been unable to do so, please don't hesitate. There are more and more animals desperate for help, especially veterinary care. Your money will help to fund essential operations, in particular neutering of both dogs and cats, and much needed vaccinations. Please give generously!


Can you give a loving Home to one of these animals?

  • goldie

  • tortuga
    I named her Tortuga. As discussed we will try and foster her (if our two cats allow it), she is very sweet natured, affectionate and friendly. We will bringing her up as an outside cat, our two live outside (they have their beds, food etc. in my shed and they have magnetic collars for a cat flap to stop feral cats getting in).

    This is Tiger one of Tubo's kittens.
    The mother was called Tubo because that’s where she gave birth, in the storm drain. At present they are being fed and cared for by a kind neighbour, but desperately need permanent homes.
