General information

Conectadogs is developing the first Animal Assisted Psychotherapy for youth living in protection centers and deprived of parental care, in which children and dogs with parallel lives marked by emotional trauma will help each other. The dogs’ rehabilitation process works as a mirror in which are reflected the youth’s experiences, traumas and virtues.
Together, they’ll heal their wounds.

Our canine co-therapists are nowadays living in animal shelter, and because of their own traumas it’s very difficult for them to find an adoptive family. In order to find them a home, we need to create a canine rehabilitation center.

Help us to make this possible!

Main features and goals of the crowdfunding campaign

This is a two-way project: on the one hand, we aim to create a replicable model of Dog Rehabilitation Center which provides a solution to shelter dogs that, by now, have no chance of being adopted because of their behavior problems. Many shelters don’t have time or resources to reeducate these dogs; therefore, we want to be a support for traditional shelters, avoiding that these animals stay there for years by reeducating them and helping to find an adoptive family.

On the other hand, we are developing an Animal-Assisted Psychotherapy for youth in residential care, in which will participate the dogs of our Center. The hole project constitutes an Research Study collaboration with the Qualiker Group (Faculty of Psychology, University of the Basque Country) and headed by PhD and researchers Alexander Muela and Nekane Balluerka.

Why this is important

On the one hand, we address to shelters that have desperate cases, dogs with many traumas (fear, aggressiveness, etc.) that turn them unable to be adopted. These dogs may end up spending all their lives in the shelter and, in addition to their own misfortune, they imply costs for the shelters, which often does not have time or resources to rehabilitate these dogs.

On the other hand, we help children and adolescents: those living in residential care, through the project we develop with the University of the Basque Country, and also other youth through animal-assisted interventions against bullying in schools and institutes, in which dogs that have been mistreated participate as co-therapists.

Goals of the crowdfunding campaign

Our goal is to get the downpayment for the land that will host the facilities of the Canine Rehabilitation Center (or, optimally, the total cost of the land), the infrastructure needed for the dogs to live, play, socialize and rehab.

We also try to get enough funds to: a) support the center opened during the first 6 months (for supplies, food, material, etc.); and b) get a training-teaching hall in which we can offer courses, seminars and other professional services with the aim of providing regular funds for the benefit of the project’s continuity, along with partners’ contributions, Teamers, and other financing possibilities.
