Axarquia Animal Rescue – Our Shop in Torre Del Mar

Our Shop is at 147 Avenida de Andalucia, Torre Del Mar, the main road through the town, located on the slip road, between the Fruit Shop and Kebab Shop, very close to the Thursday Market.

We opened in June 2014, and have gone from strength to strength., We are pleased to say the shop is extremely busy, and is now our main source of income. Without the shop, our volunteers, and your donations, we wouldn't be able to help the amount of animals that we do.

Open Monday – Friday 10am–1.30pm

Our Shop Manager, Liz, can be contacted on 657 293 663

We sell a wide variety of second hand/donated items, including clothing, jewellery, baby accessories, books, pictures, bric-a-brac, etc. - all donations gratefully received.

We also have an "Online Shop" on Facebook. Click on the link, or go to Facebook and search for "AAR Online Charity Shop". We welcome anyone to sell their unwanted, pre-loved items on this site, but we would be grateful for a small donation for any items sold on there.

If you have a few hours to spare, and would like to volunteer in our shop one morning a week, please contact Liz, on the number above.

All our 'Staff' are Volunteers, and this is what some of them have to say.....

Lisa - "I love working at the shop as I have met new friends in the area where I live. It enables me to practice a little of my bad Spanish on some of the customers and helps improve confidence. We always have fun on a Tuesday and have a great team spirit. It’s nice to know I can do my part to help the animals of AAR. Come along and join us. Make new friends, laugh a lot, every day is different."


Gerald - "I love working in our Charity shop, which I have since its inception many years ago. I feel I am financially helping our poor animals, but also helping the community by selling cheap but quality products. Wednesday team are always very busy & we have become very much a social unit and are very close friends."


Claire - "I like being an AAR volunteer. Living here in Spain for many years and building our life and home here has been different as we know, but I felt the need to help and use time that will benefit a charity Organization, I chose AAR . Where for the past 2 years I have helped in the AAR charity shop each week working with a team of wonderful volunteers who share their time to help raise money. If you have some time, and want to improve your languages, as we have a mixture of Nationalities volunteering, and customers who visit each morning to donate, buy, view and express interest to foster. A feel good that your giving hope in helping animals."


Simon - "I like to volunteer at AAR, as it’s a great charity. They help sick cats and dogs and re-home them locally, and further afield. It’s nice to help with the fundraising so this can continue. Join our team as we do a serious job, but with a sense of humour."
