Help Us


“Milagros Caninos” is the first Latin-American dog sanctuary for dogs in dire conditions. We’re dedicated to caring and rehabilitating dogs with cancer, without legs, blind, deaf, burn victims, tortured, crippled, violated and or drugged, among many other conditions.

Here we give them the opportunity to lead a dignified life, giving them food and shelter, a place to run and play, and most of all, we give them love: something they never had. And what we get in exchange is a lick or a tail wagging joyfully, sometimes even an eternally grateful gaze.

We invite you to come and meet our almost 300 dogs that live with us, to know their stories and see their smiles.

Who are we?

“Milagros Caninos” is a dog sanctuary, for dogs in the direst situations: cancer, without legs, blind, deaf, tortured, violated, etc.

Social Service

Carry out your university social service with us. We need veterinary medical students or any other profession, what matters is being kind to the dogs and to be willing to help all the dogs here in “Milagros Caninos” in their treatment and rehabilitation, or to help out carrying out any kind of work outside of the sanctuary.


In order for “Milagros Caninos” to continue with its work in supporting those that cannot care for themselves, we need the help of the people who will join the cause through volunteer work.

You can help us care, pet, bathe, brush the dogs, give petting therapy, look for donations, help us with the guided visits here and other events and even play with the dogs. You can also help us inside the sanctuary washing their dog houses and cleaning. BECOME A VOLUNTEER!
