SOS-Animal

Key Objectives & Mission

The SOS-Animal-Mallorca organisation was founded by a mixed group of Spanish and European nationals in 1995 on the island of Mallorca. The founders had been affected by the cruelty, neglect and the lack of understanding with regards to domestic animals that existed and felt there was a need for such a charity. Today, SOS-Animal-Mallorca has come a long way since it began 16 years ago, and has established itself as a recognised ambassador for the rights and protection of animals.

In 1998 SOS-Animal-Mallorca reached a collaboral agreement with the municipality of Calvia. This agreement, at the time was unique on the island of Mallorca and specified that abandoned and stray dogs would not be put down if not re-homed after three weeks as was generally accepted. Instead SOS-Animal-Mallorca would take over the fate of the animals and re-homing them. SOS-Animal-Mallorca is making every effort to find new homes for the animals, as well as providing for their every day needs until this aim is achieved. Through this agreement, SOS-Animal-Mallorca has already saved innumerable lives and will continue to save many more. SOS-Animal-Mallorca also helps animals from other kennels in the South West of the island of Mallorca. SOS-Animal-Mallorca is helping over 1000 animals each year.

In 2004 the foundation SOS-Animal was established in order to support the SOS-Animal-Mallorca organisation. Through this foundation, in the year 2008, the municipality of Calvia handed over a piece of land, on which SOS-Animal-Mallorca is sheltering their animals. In 2010, thanks to a sponsor, SOS-Animal-Mallorca was able to rent the land next to the animal pens of the municipality of Calvia for a periode of 30 years. At the moment SOS-Animal-Mallorca is about to finish their project to be able to achieve needed building permissions.
