I love to help at the shelter of ADLA because the dogs are so grateful for everything you do for them. I can’t be there every day anymore which i used to, but i consider myself a special care helper. Everytime Adri needs an extra helping hand i make sure i’ll be there. She became a very good friend and i love the dogs there as if they are my own. And also all the people you meet there to help are very good hearted people, i just love to spend time there.Ina Schwappacher, shelter volunteer

Since I’ve moved to Puerto Rico, I have been involved in volunteer work for dog shelters. First I helped ADLA with cleaning and taking care of the dogs, now I am the webmaster of Amigos de los Animales. To see the dogs suffering on the street every day is my biggest motivation to continue to volunteer at ADLA, who is doing an amazing tough job to care for the most vulnerable!Miriam Lauers, webmaster volunteer

Since 2012, I work as a volunteer at ADLA and it is awesome! I try to go every week and help cleaning the cages, replacing the dirty newspapers for clean ones and assisting with other things to make myself useful. Of course, after doing my tasks I get sweaty, I get tired and I get really filthy BUT I also get so much love and gratitude from the dogs that it makes it worth all the effort.

Adri, the president, is a brave and special person, she is so full of positive energy and treats the dogs so well that the animals can stay free together during the day. It is comforting to know that while the abandoned dogs are waiting to be adopted they have a decent and happy life, instead of being confined and locked up full time.

My best advice is to go and take a look for yourself!!! Maybe you decide to join us and give a little bit of your time, your abilities, your kindness and also some really needy articles to help Adri to maintain the place. And perhaps you are even tempted to give one of the charming dogs a home! That’s what we did to ElĂ´, who now is part of our family!Roberta Ledier Spierings, shelter volunteer
