Article Featured Image

If you’re on the hunt for a new best friend, look no further. These 13 adorable dogs are all available for adoption from the Association for Abandoned Animals, the heroes who rescue dogs in Malta.

It’s also a perfect time to step in and adopt one of these cuties as the AAA faces a moment of uncertainty. The organisation, which houses more than 80 dogs, is fully dependent on donors and is currently in the process of finding a new premises which could cost more than €30,000 to refurbish. 

So without further ado, let’s meet the pack.
