Why not come and stay at the Retreat?  A beautiful finca a 10 minute drive from Alora, a traditional whitewashed town on the banks of the Guadalhorce river, with tapas bars, restaurants and shops. Finca Alcubilla lies off the beaten track in beautiful scenic countryside. Private accommodation available for holiday lets.  
Accommodation is also available for volunteers.  Perhaps you are currently studying an animal behaviour course, or aspiring to be a dog handler, trainer or groomer.  Whatever your interests, volunteering at the Retreat is a perfect environment to gain invaluable experience up close and personal. Of course, accommodation can also be offered for someone simply having a genuine love for animals, and not minding the dirty work that comes with taking care of them! 

Contact us if you are interested in either volunteering or holiday lets. 


Placing a rescue dog in a foster home gives the best chance of finding their forever home and setting them up for success in their new family.

Pat is actively looking for volunteers to become foster carers locally here in Spain to help in the rehoming process of the dogs she rescues as strays or from the pound.
