One of our original founders, friend and groomer, Nydia Brondo volunteers her awesome grooming skills to ADLA doggits. She is holding Harley, one of two 7 lb. MaltyPoos found on the beach a few weeks back. If you live in the PR metro area, she's the one to call for the hardest jobs.  She is gentle, efficient and the dogs love her. She comes to you and she's more than reasonably priced. Nydia can be reached at 787-810-2590.

Don't forget to buy this amazing book about "Bella", a very unlikely therapy dog rescued by ADLA member, Mary Eldergil.  We still have a few Signed Copies by the writer which we can send you  for a $20 donation or buy it from Amazon and book stores - everywhere. Jean Baur is a wonderful writer: so touching,  funny and very witty.
Our Vision: 
1) We need $7000 monthly to function properly as a shelter. Our bills cover utilities, vet bills, food, shipping, crates, medications and infrastructure for our rescues. We're always juggling the money since we have never had that amount per month. 

2) After receiving quotes from contractors, we have  approx. $30 K in work to begin to fix all the chipped wrought iron, patches of falling ceiling and upgrades to our runs and septic systems, scraping and painting the shelter and laying down now cement flooring in 4 areas of the shelter. If you would like to donate to our shelter fund please let us know that on your donation.
Thanks!! We're So Grateful!
Dear friends and supporters,

It's time again that we need to ask for your help to continue in our efforts. So many 4 legged babies need our help to leave the misery and suffering they are facing every day of their lives. Please donate so we can keep saving lives and making a difference for the animals we rescue. We are a non-profit 501c(3) organisation dependant upon private donations from people like you, so every penny counts toward our rescued pets welfare.  We are fighting the good fight in Puerto Rico,
 "Yo no me quito".
We need your help to be able to continue in our mission. We are hoping that we can count on you to help us fix the shelter but more importantly, we have growing vet bills and all kinds of operational costs to cover monthly. Please see the list to the left ⬅︎ which shows the ways in which you can donate.
We are constantly Praying, Paying, Visualising and Working for the changes we want to see in 2017.

RIP Barbara Perifanos our dearest friend, volunteer and fellow rescuer. She was an angel here on earth to all who knew her, and now she is
Home with The Lord.
Our Beloved Vet, Dr. Juan Ellin
A big "Hollar Out" to our Dr. Juan Ellin (left) and his amazing vet tech, Fernando (right) who are always so ready and willing to do whatever it takes to help our "fur babies" get healthy and happy. Amigos de los Animales is a charity, but Campo Rico Veterinary Clinic at 787-768-6099, is not. If you would like to help us pay off our balance they can take credit cards over the phone.  Ellin is a good friend  and I love his staff too. I feel bad that they have taken such a hit from us now when times are tough for everyone...
They have been too kind to us so please please friends, will you help us pay down our $4000 in vet bills with Dr. Ellin? Our hands are tied till we have paid our balance with him. We can not put any more strain and pressure on his office to carry our load.
Please friends, call their office and put a donation down to help cover our vet bills, won't you? We are in the middle of various serious heart worm and TVT cancer chemo treatments but all that has come to a screeching halt till our balance is paid.  Thanks for helping!!

Chester is at his new home, a two acre garden with another Great Dane named
Luna and people who love him! If you followed Chester's rescue on FaceBook, you'll remember that he was skin and bones at 94 lbs and now he weighs over 110 lbs!
Introducing our President and our Vice President
President, Attorney Amanda Rose Collazo Maguire, Mandy (as she's called by those who love her) grew up in Ponce, Puerto Rico where she lived for about 25 years. She moved to New Jersey to study at Princeton and moved to California for a few years after that, before returning to Puerto Rico. She now lives in the metro area and works as an attorney. She got involved with Amigos de los Animales through her friend Ela who asked if she wanted to come volunteer one Saturday. She fostered and adopted Wendy Bee from Amigos in March 2016. Wendy’s a cute little black "Sato" who also has two sibling kitties: Bandit and Gigi.
Mandy has always been aware of the devastating animal welfare situation in Puerto Rico. She became more enthusiastic about helping change the situation when she became involved in Amigos. "The more I learn, the more people I meet that care and are involved in making a difference, and the more needy animals I see being adopted into good homes; the more inspired I become."


Vice President, Dr. Ela Stolarczyk was born in Poland where, during her
childhood the site of a homeless dog on the street was not uncommon. She grew up observing the end of communism, and how it changed lives of people…apparently also lives of animals! Nowadays when she visits her homeland she no longer sees homeless animals on the streets. She moved to the United States to earn her PhD and since then she's been working as a research scientist in the biomedical field. During 10 years of living in Kentucky she never saw a homeless dog on the streets, perhaps because of highly efficient animal control agencies? In Kentucky she adopted Leo, her first dog and best friend. Leo has travelled with Ela a lot, within the US, Poland and Puerto Rico. The first time she came to Puerto Rico on vacation she was enchanted by the warmth of the people and undeniable beauty of this little island. However, this image contrasted dramatically with the number of homeless, often sick and malnourished dogs and cats wandering the streets, and the number of animal corpuses on the sides of the highways. It was (and is) heartbreaking…Once Ela moved to Puerto Rico she decided to actively do something towards improving the welfare of animals and reducing the overpopulation. This is when she wrote to us and came to ADLA for a Saturday cleanup…and stayed. The rest is history!
" From ADLA I adopted Kimba and Bongo, the children of the first dog I rescued with Adri. Now my days are brightened by my pack of 3 happy dogs, each, with very different characters.
