Vedama is a non-profit animal protection society located in Oliva (Valencia).

The association is made up of a group of people who, for many years, have had the commitment to work for the most disadvantaged animals.

July 15, 2010

The association, as we know it today, was founded on July 15th, 2010. For a while, Vedama exclusively worked with foster homes.

After managing to close the old municipal dog pound, Vedama was able to use these previously conditioned facilities.
