S.O.S EL ARCA
IS A NON-PROFIT DOG SHELTER AND COMPLETELY PRIVATELY FUNDED, WITH NO GOVERNMENT FINANCIAL SUPPORT.
We rescue and rehabilitate dogs from the street and local dog pound. Our main objective is to rescue and give in adoption to good homes dogs that have been abandoned, wounded, abused, etc. We are a no-kill shelter; our dogs are with us until we find a permanent home.
In case we don’t find they stay until they pass away in a natural way.
A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
In 2011 our president Sylvie Goetz, decided to take the responsibility of adopting a dog and went directly to the local pound.
The conditions were terrible, the dogs didn't have any food or water, they were dying of hunger, dehydration and many other horrible ways. She left there with a very skinny dog, but the healthiest of all. She couldn’t sleep for 3 nights, and the 4th morning she decided she had to do something for these poor dogs: She bought them food, went every day to feed them herself, pulling out (adopting them) every day 3 dogs, published their pictures and found homes for over 80 of them in the first 3 months. All these dogs were so sick and in so bad shape they were costing her a fortune to help. It was necessary to create a charity and so started SOS EL ARCA.
