Round the clock, 365 days a year
The 12 staff at Can Gassos work 365 days a year to help meet the needs of all the dogs. The dogs are taken into the refuge, given medical treatment if necessary, and then prepared for adoption in new families in Ibiza or Switzerland. Every single dog is given the love and commitment they deserve until it is time to leave for their new home.
Jesús has a variety of duties, such as overseeing all operations and activities of the refuge including animal care, administration, human resources, budget and the maintenance of our beautiful installations. In addition, Jesús plays a crucial role in protecting and caring for our dogs as well as promoting their well-being and finding forever homes.

If we are able to pay attention to them, our canines can teach us a unique lesson: to live in the present. Every time I am with a dog I am fully focused on the present: there is no future or the past. Furthermore, they are capable of teaching us (because they can see it) a better version of ourselves whereby what matters most is what cannot be bought, and that is time.
Pau is a lifelong animal lover and cherishes the impact they have in our lives. He feels a certain weakness for all bigger breeds and enjoys their company.
Dog Care Assistant
Every day I am driven by the intention to soften their routine in order to counteract the terrible experiences these dogs have made. While it fulfills and nourishes me, I learn from them to unconditionally accept every circumstance despite of what happened in their lives. I feel a special connection with the distant and fearful dogs.
