The book – the story


Camper vans, ex-pats & Spanish hounds – the SOS Animals UK story!

Over five years ago Tania Coates and Sam Morris set off on a road trip through Spain, where we found their boy Pedro on the side of the road. They couldn’t leave him there as he was close to death. Little did they know what would happen next… This was the beginning of SOS Animals UK, and since then they have re-homed over four hundred dogs.

Official description:
“Spain is the most popular holiday destination for British tourists, and the most popular destination for emigrating Brits. The book highlights the negative and positive British involvement in the Spanish stray dog problem, and also shows how the issue is being addressed by rescue organisations and volunteers. With a firsthand account of finding a sick and uncared for stray on the side of the road, and details of the specific nature of many of the Spanish breeds and hunting pastimes, this unique book reveals a little known face of British and Spanish culture with inside knowledge and insight from all levels. From the Spanish hunting culture to the British tourist culture, a chain of responsibility for the stray dog problem exists that crosses borders and societies. Included are case studies and photos of all aspects of the rescue world, showing just how much can be done with the will and motivation.”
