Our Shelter

Amigos de los Animales (ADLA) operates a shelter in the Pinones Beach home of Adrienne Galler Lastra. We currently use local veterinarians to treat and sometimes board our animals including Drs. Juan Ellin, Monica Pagan, Jose A. Diaz Umpierre, and Viejo and as well as other area veterinarians. All of our Vets have been instrumental in the rehabilitation of hundreds of our rescued pets.

About our Shelter Director

Adri and Cleopatra

Adrienne Galler Lastra (known as Adri through Piñones and the rescue community) has always been involved in animal rescue and rehabilitation and has vowed to make a difference for the animals in Puerto Rico.

In 2005, Adri converted her home into the Piñones Beach Project animal shelter; and in 2008 she became president of Amigos de los Animales. She now runs the Amigos de los Animales Shelter and cares for the animals 24/7, ensuring their safety and well-being.
