Scooby Shelters

Scooby Laguna

Laguna de Duero is a small city in north-central Spain with 21,000 residents, close to the city of Valladolid, 60 kilometers (37 miles) away from Medina del Campo. The former president of the shelter (formerly known as Defensa Animal), for different reason, felt overwhelmed by the job, and asked us for help. At first the dogs were brought to Scooby, while we waited to have the papers in order and Fermín became the president of the shelter. Since February 1, 2009, Scooby has been in charge of Laguna de Duero. The former president is now the vice president, and continues helping with the shelter and maintaining her contacts.

Maria Jose has worked at Laguna since February 2009. She in continually working to bring the shelter up to date according to Scooby’s protocols; this includes cleaning, vaccinations, deworming and micro-chipping the dogs. The daily work is hard, the facilities are very old, the doors of the kennels are not very safe, and the distribution of the dogs is complicated. The facilities need to be repaired, and as soon as we have the money for it, we’ll do it, and also build more kennels. The shelter needs to be improved for it to be better for the dogs, as well as for the people working there. It needs to become a more functional safe haven.

On average there are 30 dogs, of which most are crossed bred, but also Galgos and even some breeds such as Dalmatians and Collies. Through this shelter we have an agreement with the Laguna de Duero city council. It is an annual agreement in which we undertake to pick up all the abandoned dogs from Laguna.

Scooby Zamora

Zamora is a city in the autonomous community of Castilla y León, the capital of the province of Zamora. It lies on a rocky hill in the northwest of Spain, near the frontier with Portugal and 100 kilometers (62 miles) from Medina del Campo.

The former shelter from Zamora, Fiel amigo, had some problems. The biggest problem was that the landlord who rented out the land asked for it back. The volunteers working there, who knew Scooby, called us and asked us to take the animals to Scooby. At the same time, Fiel Amigo signed an agreement with Zamora’s city council to pick up the dogs and take care of the city pound. The city subcontracted to Scooby, and we’ve been working this way since 2008. We have now formalized a new shelter with the name Scooby Zamora. We are now in charge of the pound, and from now on, the dogs will no longer be euthanized and most importantly they now have a second chance.

There are on average 30 dogs, most of them cross bred, some Galgos and 10-15 cats. Zamora works with the same protocols as we work with in Scooby Medina. All animals are dewormed, vaccinated, and they also have their microchip. From Zamora, Mabel, Auxi, Merce, Bety and Ana take care and look for families for the dogs, and when they think an animal will have a better chance at Scooby Medina del Campo, they then bring it to our shelter.

As you can see in the photos, the shelters need a lot of improvements to make them more comfortable for the dogs and also to give them a new fresh look instead of the dreary look they have now. So we need your financial support to make them look like real shelters!!
