Little Giant is our miracle dog. He was found at the side of the road after being in a horrific car accident. After countless hours and immeasurable effort by him and our vets and team, he has made the journey back to health and has transformed into a truly happy dog. Today you can always count on a smile on his face and love in his eyes whenever you see him.
Before we came along to turn the house into our APAC House, it was lived in by a lovely kitty who welcomed us with open arms. Her name is Mama Cat. She is so sweet and loving towards everyone, but especially the kittens. She accepts each new kitten as her baby, and they accept her as mommy, even suckling from her, though she has no milk. She cleans them when they are dirty (and sometimes even when they aren’t), and does her best to keep them out of trouble. She truly suits her name to a T.
Leo is a very happy dog who is affectionately nicknamed Mr. Popular because he finds a friend in everyone he meets, whether two legged or four. This positive attitude towards life is truly inspiring given his past. Leo was found chained on a hot roof with no shade, wearing a metal muzzle that didn’t allow him to eat or drink. He’s about five years old, and has some health issues that make some consider him a lost cause, but we certainly don’t think so, and you can tell by his love of life that he doesn’t think so either. Leo’s favorite thing to do is just soak up as much love (and belly rubs) as he possibly can, and everyone who meets him is more than happy to oblige.
The APAC House is our shelter located in Cardenas, Cuba. Every animal that we rescue is welcomed to the House with open arms and only leaves when it is either deemed capable of survival on its own or it has been adopted. Our animals love visitors so we always welcome anyone who wants to visit for some cuddles. If you’d like to visit the APAC House, send us a message and we’ll set it up.
We’re located only 30 minues from Varadero. We’d love for you to drop by for some four-legged cuddles!
