Overview

Especially if like to see a local animal rescue in action, walk our dogs on the nearby beach, help clean the kennels, pet the cats, play with the kittens, see the happy faces at feeding time. Our staff are more than happy to direct you to splendid, undiscovered sites in the area. For a fee we can even take you there with our AARRC pickup.

They're still with us, but indeed, their chances aren't that great but we are doing our best. Thx for the donation! Mich.

Walking in to the beautiful house where the shelter is located was such an emotional experience. As an animal lover it was hard not to burst into tears when I was greeted by dogs big and small, some were limping, some could barely walk, one...More

If you have time to spare in Kalibo, you may want to spend it volunteering/visiting these beloved dogs and cats. It may be the best part of your vacation!

Beaches, waterfalls, caves, diving, and throw in the odd museum. That’s tourism in the Philippines. I needed a break to do a different activity, and lo and behold I see this place listed as a “thing to do” in Kalibo. I just dropped by without...More
