Welcome to ACE|SHIN
Edgar (ACE Edgar #13128)
ACE|SHIN stands for 'Animal Care España’, Spaanse Honden In Nood, abbreviated SHIN. In the Netherlands we communicate under the name ACE. In Belgium our organization is known as SHIN. ACE|SHIN fights against the abuse and killing of dogs in southern Spain, takes care of them, finds good homes for them, and sets up castration projects on the spot.
Our Refugio (shelter) houses 500 dogs and cats per month, who receive the care they need, such as food and medical care, day in day out.
Every dog, sick, old or with a disability, gets ACE|SHIN a fair chance.
Roderick (ACE Nami #18357)
Longsitter of the month:
Yvo was rescued from the killing station along with a few others. He's a cool, active boy, an oversized young boy with his whole life ahead of him.
He is social with other dogs, very sweet with people, but needs his daily exercise. An active family that regularly wants to go out with their four-legged friend would be an ideal home for him.

Would you like to do something for our dogs and cats, without immediately becoming a volunteer? Start or support one of our actions! You can start a donation or fundraiser, or promote our dogs and cats extra. On our website we have various examples of (ongoing) promotions, both online and in your neighbourhood, at school or during an event.
Help our dogs and cats and adopt or donate…
Are you considering adopting a dog or cat? Under Adoption Info you will find additional information such as the adoption procedure, the arrival of your foreign dog, or foreign diseases. If you want to help an (extra) dog or cat, you can also foster an animal remotely or virtually adopt it. If you use the filters for dogs and cats for adoption to search more specifically, then also take a look at the Long stayerss, Seniors, or Hard-to-adopt animals. Maybe you are their perfect match, and you do an extra nice rescue!

Cat of the week
Give a Spanish adoption dog or cat a chance! Adopting a dog or cat from abroad saves lives!
You can hear their voice in the stories of our lucky ones in Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, UK or elsewhere…
“You can't save all the animals in the world, but you can save the world of one dog or cat.”
ACE|SHIN has been committed to the fate of Spanish stray dogs and cats for over 20 years. In addition to rescuing, receiving and offering for adoption, ACE|SHIN works on the ground for better legislation, implementation and control, establishes neutering programs and educates on animal care and handling in local schools.

Fabienne, founder of ACE|SHIN, shares in her diary – almost daily – the stories of life within the rescue center “de refugio”; place of recovery and hope. More than 20.000 dogs and cats have already left here for their Forever Homes in the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain or elsewhere….
Adopters regularly share their experiences with adopting a foreign dog/cat through the stories of their ACE|SHIN dog or cat. They are the best voice for those who got a rematch, sometimes against various prejudices! Read their happy, funny, moving and special stories in the Geluksvogels Journaal.
ACE|SHIN has a large group of animal lovers who support our Foundation through volunteer work (such as taking in animals or collecting goods), sponsoring, promotion and actions or organizing activities. In Barking News we share all the news and updates here!
The In Memoriam diary is the last diary of our adopted four-legged friends. Often they have gone into the beloved hands of their owner.
The dogs and cats that die in the refugio during the year are remembered annually during the ACE|SHIN anniversary on December 11.
