Operation Perrito -

A special project to help 11 Spanish Dogs

The Little Dog Rescue recently received a call from a young British gentleman living in Spain, who is returning to the UK to begin to rebuild his life after losing his wife to illness. They shared a love of dogs, and their adopted dogs moved to Spain with them eleven years ago, where they added to their pack whilst living there. Sadly, he is now faced with having to rehome 11 of these, in order to find accommodation and work back in the UK.

Having attempted to find help through Spanish rescues, and most of the UK's well-known larger rescue centres, he was at his wits' end and feared for the safety of his little family, until he came across the details of The Little Dog Rescue. Whilst 11 dogs from one family was daunting, we heard his story and felt we could work together to help Matt ensure a great life for each and every one of them, and so, 'Operation Perrito' was born.


There are four little dogs arriving in December, a further four in January 2014 and the final three in February.

We are seeking loving foster homes for each of these dogs to enable them to acclimatise, and be fully assessed ready for new homes.

You can find out more via the Operation Perrito section on our forum or you can email us at operationperrito@littledogrescue.co.uk giving a little information about yourself and stating that you would like to foster. Vicki or Jayne will happily respond to your enquiry.

You can also follow the dogs' news on Twitter and Facebook, just click the links below:


The Spanish 11 as they have become known, also have a blog and you can follow news of their progress, with lots of photos and snippets about their characters, and a bit about the work going on behind the scenes for Operation Perrito and the people involved.

Come and join us and meet this beautiful family, and see how you can help!
