Amazing place with the most dedicated, kind and genuine people volunteering there. More than worth the visit, highly recommend going and walking/cuddling the pups. Donate if you can! Such an inspiring place and Sandra (the founder) is an amazing human.

Tripadvisor won’t allow me to post a link to the sanctuary’s Facebook page but please search for it under the name “Sandra Sambrailo”. I’m sure she will help the cat if she can.

Hi, I've just seen your message that was left 3 days ago. If you contact the shelter on Facebook and tell them where the dog was, I'm sure they'll be able to help you.
