Dozens of abandoned dogs in Malaga have found a new home in Sweden this year thanks to the work of ADA-HUNDAR. The NGO, whose name translates to 'Ada dogs', aims to give dogs "a second chance".

ADA-HUNDAR works in collaboration with numerous municipal kennels in the area, as well as organisations such as Triple A (Marbella) and El Refugio de Leo (Vélez-Málaga).

This NGO is especially helpful in the local area as breeds for which it is difficult to find a home locally (mainly hunting dogs or potentially dangerous breeds) are in high demand in Nordic countries. These include pitbulls and podencos.

In spite of pandemic restrictions, until October, 45 dogs have been transported to their new homes. That number is expected to rise to around 70 before the end of the year.
