Animal Sanctuary

La Candela

In our sanctuary we take care of more than 500 animals, our inhabitants are looking forward to meeting you

Our mission

Love for all animals

Our goal as a community is to rescue and protect animals used for food, abandoned or mistreated, from slaughterhouses, farms or private calls. In our sanctuary we live with more than 500 rescued animals. A life project, to generate respect and awareness in the world: for the land we walk on and for all the beings with whom we share it.

We want to achieve a society in which animal abuse has no place.
Offer opportunities for transformation through programs and information to follow a vegan lifestyle. To be a channel for the development of voluntary action and the culture of solidarity. Together we will succeed.
