Are your kids begging for a puppy? Would you like some memorable awwwwwwwwww moments with a new little member of the family or two?
Have a look at these two sweetheart puppies from the APASA kennel in Javea. Adopting a puppy from APASA means you can come and talk to it first, so you know there is positive chemistry. The puppy will have had its vaccinations, a micro chip and European passport, health checks and blood tests. But more importantly, you get a lifelong loyal companion who will soon grow to love you!
Information about Colina and Colin
“Colina and her brother Colin were found in the campo. Their mother was dead and they hid in a rabbit burrow. Thank god someone was walking his dog there and heard them cry. Both dogs are in foster home now, where they are being socialised with people and other dogs. Next week they will be old and strong enough for vaccination and ready to go to a new home. The mum was medium sized, and we guess they will grow to be of the same size.”

Saw this yesterday from APASA Javea: “Supporting Apasa Javea Dogs Home. There are 230 dogs who would just love to go for a walk and some have never left the pound in 4 years. Spare an hour and make a dog very happy. Thank you”
Went and took two dogs, Sawa and Rupa, for a walk in the orange groves near Garden Center Road … and played around in fields and bamboos at the dry riverbed for a couple of hours. I had a great time with the dogs, they seemed to enjoy it too and even found me a dead snake that was proudly handed over as a present hahaha
If you can spare an hour its a very small help to the local dog rescue. The dogs love the opportunity to get out and explore – and its good excercise as well. You can just turn up at APASA between 11am-1pm and 5pm-8pm and they will instruct you from there.
Heres a few shots from roaming around with Sawa and Rupa at Javea Photos – APASA Dogs
With 230 dogs and very little funding, I suspect any help is appreciated at APASA. You can be a member for 20eurs, sponsor a dog for 25euros, adopt a dog if you would like a loyal companion – or as I did, simply go and take one for a walk.

Many thanks for taking APASA dogs for a walk along the nature of Jávea. The dogs love to leave the doghouse, explore, run and play. If at all possible, please take a buddy or pals as many of the dogs share kennels. This means that some of the dogs struggle to ever get taken for walks out in nature, as their “room mates” quite simply get jealous, wouldn’t you in case you really fancied a walked and only your neighbor was picked to go?
We now have become very creative with buddies, family members vacationing and this way we can get a lot more dogs desiring a walk in Javea out with friendly people happy to help, even if they are just here visiting friends or on holiday. Each dog walked creates happiness for a living being!
We are confident that a majority of dogs have sweet dreams about getting out and play in nature or a park, to locate hidden treasure, explore the plenty of good smells and get some personal attention from the kind person walking it. They still find a way to enjoy coming back home to the kennel after, so don’t assume all doom and gloom – the dogs at APASA are well looked after, treasured by the hard working and dog loving staff and all their needs are met as much as humanly possible, but there simply are not enough hours in the day to fulfill every resident dogs dream of a run by the river or walk in the park. Each and every dog would delight in having some affection and cuddles and promptly go deep into this rewarding those showing them a good time with instant love and appreciation.
I may also say the staff at APASA Javea are fantastic! They work so hard and amazingly remember the name of every one of the many dogs they look after. There’s not enough hours during the day to be fully catering for all of the dogs practical needs, for just that a walker is sure to offer something extra that is hard to accommodate for the staff – time, lots of time. Time to talk to the dog, time to walk it, time to play with it. There isn’t any pressure in the least to make specific commitments, come along to APASA during opening hours, take a happy dog for a nice long walk – and come back whenever you have the time next – you can see more about it on the APASA Javea website
The question keeps getting asked: Is it allowed to take your dog for a walk on the Arenal Beach ?
The simple answer is no. The local council of Xábia will issue you a fine via the local police if you take your dog onto the actual Arenal Beach. The reason is fairly simple, the council spends enormous resources keeping the beach clean, tidy and welcoming for tourists and even though you might responsibly collect any remains your dog leaves behind, experience show that others do not, and stepping in a dog poo isn’t really a nice ingredient of a days at the beach for visitors from around the world.
But I see people walking their dogs on the Arenal beach all the time? Yes, it is very common to do so but it is not permitted. Out of the tourist season and late at night the enforcement of the ban on dogs on the beach is quite relaxed. As with most things the Spanish are generally quite easy going and pragmatic about their laws and regulations so if you are walking your beloved dog on the empty beach during an evening in November, odds are nobody will lift an eyebrow. However, you do risk a fine doing so at any time.
There are plenty of nice places to walk your dog in the picturesque nature of Javea. Doing so on the Arenal beach is at your own risk as it is not permitted!
