Our goal is to allow all of these animals to spend quiet days in our shelter or within a family that will meet their needs. You will discover the different species that we host and their living conditions at the shelter which are unique in France.
 
Veterinarians, veterinary nurses, dog trainers and maintenance staff are present at all times to ensure the care and welfare of all. A team of ethologists, set within the shelter, study the behavior of our animals to better understand the issues related to their well- being when living in groups and to rehabilitate pets.
 
We offer a boarding service for dogs and cats reserved for our association members:
"A real vacation for your companion" helping us to provide for all the other animals.
Do not hesitate to contact us for more information or to arrange a visit to meet our furry friends.
