WE KNOW IT'S NOT A SELFIE BUT.... Today's #shelterselfie didn't go quite according to plan as 7 of our cats (yes 7, count the noses and tails!) wanted in on the act with Rajesh!
Rajesh is a quiet, but extremely diligent and responsible member of Team TOLFA. He can do lots of the tasks required here but has found the perfect place for his gentle, kind ways working with our cats and puppies.
And as for our fame seeking cats we can only say, whether they are pampered pets, street moggies or sanctuary felines, they are cats and they will do as they please .... As our 'not quite a #shelterselfie' just goes to prove! ... See MoreSee Less

Amazing transformation! This beauty had a severe case of mange when we rescued her and we thought her recovery was going to be a long one so even we were shocked when she went from bald to beautiful in less than two months! Can we get some love and likes not only for this lady's fantastic resilience but also for the staff who helped her get there? ... See MoreSee Less
Golden Oldie gets a second chance!! When we rescued this sweet lady she was suffering from a severe case of mange and hardly had a hair on her body. After 3 months of treatments, good food and love she now has her beautiful, fluffy coat back and as she is rather a mature lady, she shall spend her retirement here at TOLFA living out her twilight years in peace.... ...

A sad loss leads to a new life! Our Managing Supervisor, Annu adopted Robin when he was just six months old. They shared an incredible bond for 10 years but sadly last week Robin passed away leaving Annu distraught at the loss of his dear friend. But for another pup that no one wanted to adopt life was about to change when Annu decided that he couldn't manage without a doggy friend in his life.... And so today we say RIP Robin, you were very much loved and will always be missed and a happy Namaste to Robin#2 (pictured here with Annu) who is already Annu's little shadow! ... See MoreSee Less
Please pass on my condolences to Annu. Robin number 1 will be sadly missed, but hearts are big enough to love many dogs in a lifetime. Looking forward to meeting Robin number 2. xx
Nice pics yaar good wark out ho
We will miss you #Robin and those unforgettable moments with you❤
The loss of a dear friend and companion is never easy. But as the circle of life continues, the many happy memories remain, as some form of comfort.
And a new chapter begins, with Robin 2 - who is a very lucky pup indeed.
Rest in peace, Robin.
Hello, new Robin!
May Robin RIP😔 .....and i am happy for robin#2 a great hello to him
Meet Womble.... This gorgeous, gentle boy has fought distemper and won! As you will see from the two photos he has a rather odd 'post distemper twitch' where he constantly scrunches up and then relaxes his nose.... He has now joined the elite ranks of sanctuary dogs here at TOLFA where we love his uniqueness and he will be safe and happy for the rest of his days... ... See MoreSee Less
We bring you Vijay and Neil as this weeks #shelterselfie Vijay has worked with us for 6 years following his Uncle - who was one of our very first members of staff - into Team TOLFA. Neil has been with us around a year. He had a wonderful, kind caregiver but sadly other people in his area did not feel the same about him and he was repeatedly being beaten and injured so between us and his caregiver we decided it was best for him to live here with us in safety and kindness.... ...

This lovely young lady lives in a very hard environment and until recently had no formal education but no matter how tough her life is she chooses kindness.... We all have a choice at every moment of every day to choose love... ... See MoreSee Less

TOLFA touches your heart and leaves a beautiful mark forever. This photo is from 2008 when Clara first got involved with TOLFA.... almost 10 years later and Clara is now the Executive Director of TOLFA UK!
Has TOLFA touched your heart? If so we'd love to hear from you!
Clara Nowak many congratulations you have put your heart and soul into Tolfa United-Kingdom xx
TOLFA certainly has touched my heart, think often of the amazing trips I've had to the shelter, and all the amazing work you do.
I remember so well. That's Charles, Edward and Amber with Tiger's paw just in shot. I'm holding a bowl of eggs to give them, one each, but they were so eager to get to them! Blessed memories of a very, very special place 💜
your statement is 100% accurate, my visit to Tolfa has stayed with me, in my heart (actually I left a little piece of my heart there 😊) and I can honestly say I think about it daily, the kindness of the people and the wonderful difference they make is nothing short of amazing. My hope is to come back some day, thank you TOLFA, for changing my life, keep up the great work xx #tolfalove

TOLFA is committed to eradicating rabies through mass vaccination and the sterilisation on street dogs.
