EN ROUTE

 

Association En Route was set up to save the lives of abandoned dogs in the Deux Sèvres/Vienne area of Poitou-Charentes. Our main aim is to get dogs that end up in local Pounds in to loving and safe foster or permanent homes as quickly as possible with the help of our network of fosterers and volunteers. Each Tuesday, anyone is welcome to come along to the Ark79 shop to talk dog with us. We are always there, usually with a dog looking for a loving home. For further information go to AssoEnRoute.com
