Animal Sanctuary

Hello and welcome!

I am Elena Tova, founder and director of the first animal sanctuary in Spain, which is currently the El Hogar Animal Sanctuary Foundation.

I am very happy that you visit us in this “virtual home” that is our website and I hope you enjoy everything we have prepared to show you.

Between all of us we have created a space free of speciesism: an animal sanctuary within whose physical limits they are neither consumed nor advertised as products.

Its facilities are adapted according to the needs and interests of each individual and according to their personal characteristics. Protection spaces or parks where different species coexist in peace and harmony, without cages or fences that hold us back or isolate us from each other.

There are 30 hectares of immeasurable beauty in which some animals now live happily that were victims of situations of exploitation, abandonment or extreme suffering:

The lands of Peace

The El Hogar Animal Sanctuary Foundation is the non-profit NGO that created the first animal sanctuary in Spain more than fourteen years ago.

We are all activists and we want to improve this world, especially for the most disadvantaged who, currently by number, are animals.
Since then, we have kept our basic pillars intact with the aim of achieving a fairer and healthier society for all animals (human and non-human).

These pillars are built on the basis of:

  • the defense of the rights of all animals,
  • the promotion of veganism as a way of life and
  • the support of all those groups that, in one way or another, are rejected or mistreated in our current society.

The El Hogar Animal Sanctuary Foundation does not receive any type of subsidy from the public administration, so we depend exclusively on those, like you, who believe that another world is possible.

There are several ways to help, which we will tell you about below.

Your support is essential for our day to day.

In our dreams there are several projects to develop, projects devised from the heart to create a sustainable, empathetic and supportive world. Some are taking their first steps, others have already been consolidated and the rest are still under development, gathering the necessary resources to start them up.

We would love for you to get to know them first hand. We are very proud of them.

Thanks to the selfless collaboration of the volunteers, the Hogar Animal Sanctuary can continue to function. Sanctuary animals need to be protected and cared for. Volunteers take care of that.

There are different types of volunteering: during single days, resident volunteering, online volunteering, in events and awareness …

Also through events we spread veganism, we teach those who want to know more or those who have not yet taken the step and with the benefits that are obtained, we continue to help those who need it most.

Events are an incredible way to get to know each other and to exchange ideas and opinions. Throughout our journey, we have created and enjoyed countless events.
