What you'll do

Children love them! Adults love them!
And the animals will love that you come to cuddle them and play with them.

Together with some of the dogs, we welcome you here at our little farm.

You will meet all the dogs and we will tell your their stories (they are all rescued from a terrible life ... some found in the garbage, some rescued from killing station, some abandoned etc .... you will not only meet the dogs, but also the other animals we have here at the farm.... They are all friendly and they all love attention, cuddle and love.

We will be happy to help you taking pictures with the animals. From May to September you also have the chance to swim in the pool with the dogs. you will be able to take your favorite dog for a walk, bottle feed newborn puppies (when we have puppies), play with the funniest and most loving mini pigs in the world, groom the pony etc...

We promise 3 hours with heart melters and a meeting with rescue animals that will touch your heart for ever
Other things to note
. Bring "old clothes" because a day with active and loving animals will make your clothes dirty :) You are allowed to bring treats/sausages etc for the dogs

From May to October you can swim with the dogs in the pool, so bring towels and clothes for swimming.

Because of Covid/hard financial times we do not have many rescue animals now: max 8 dogs, the pigs and cats

Hello, my name is Leontin. Together with my partner I live on a farm outside Elche. I am 35 years old, she is 41 years old. She has lived in Spain the last 4 years, rescuing dogs and other abandoned and mistreated animals. I have been here almost two years.
On the farm you will find rescue dogs in all ages and sizes, Fiona the loving donkey, Rubia the adorable pony, and the two sweetest (big) mini pigs in the world.

My partnee has always had animals, and for many years she worked with horses. We both have always been an animal lover, so rescuing animals and find new, good homes for them, is what makes our hearts happy❤️

Was so lovely to come and be invited into such a wonderful, welcoming home. Leo and his family (wife and very cute daughter) greeted us by the gate with some of the dogs and we did a really fun walk. Chatting about the dogs histories and where they came from was so informative and educational. My favourite part was meeting Madonna and Elvis the piggies. They have rescued these animals from unimaginable situations and provided them with shelter- just so sad I couldn't take them home! He even made us a Vegan meal from scratch which was delicious and fresh pomegranate. thank you and I recommend to anyone who is an animal lover/looking for a four legged friend.

What a brilliant experience for my daughters and also myself. Leo was an amazing host and the 3 hours we spent there were amazing. My daughters loved the dogs and the food that we had was fantastic and very tasty. After a walk with 4 of the dogs, we met the other dogs at their home. We also met Madonna and Elvis who are both pigs. My children loved spending lots of time with the dogs and the swim in the pool with Alfonso and Daisy was a nice touch. The cakes and home-made Lemonade was particularly nice and I enjoyed that very much, but the home-made Pasta sauce was excellent and Leo was happy to share the recipe. After food, my daughters and I had more time with the dogs before we had to leave. My daughters fell in love with some of the dogs, especially Mia who was adorable. I would recommend this experience to any animal lover as the 3 hours of petting, swimming with and cuddling the animals is too good to miss. All the best. Sadie, Ella and David.

We had an amazing afternoon at Leontins farm with lots of great moments and left with a bag full of memories we will never forget. Leontin and his wife are lovely and open-minded people, who make you feel like a part of the family the moment you enter their home. Their relationship to each of the animals is amazing and they truly love and care about them. We had a funny swimming session with some of the dogs in the pool and afterwards Leo made us a delicious lunch. We can totally recommend to book this experience and want to thank Leo and his wife once again for the great time!

We had a wonderful day, made a bunch of new friends and learn more about the history of the farm. Leo and Sessel were amazing hosts and opened the doors to their home and family to us, which made us feel as part of the pack. The job they are doing is truly admirable and we hope that more people get to visit.
