About Us

Live Arico PAWS is a no kill, non-profit organization based in the South of Tenerife. With our team of committed volunteers, loving foster homes and local veterinarians we are dedicated to rescuing animals left homeless for whatever reason.

We are totally reliant on public donations, which enables us to provide any necessary medical care, spay/neutering, microchipping, vaccinations, de-worming, de-flea etc.

We have a dog shelter situated near Parque del a Reina where the majority of our animals live during their time with us. We work in partnership with other animal welfare groups such as Sangha San Miguel Animal Educational Farm where animals of other species we have rescued, are cared for.

Our finances are raised by public donations, Organisation membership , two retail charity shops and other dedicated benefits/events throughout the year.
