The foundation

We are found on a 250 acre sanctuary in French Guianawith many strays, abused, or abandoned dogs. Our dogs are cared for, loved, and educated in a peaceful environment where they get to enjoy a life of freedom and coexist as a pack. Beyond the immediate care of our dogs, our ambition is to inform and raise awareness among the local population about the various qualities and value of these animals. Through our missions and actions, we hope to change the perception of them and cause a lasting impact in the community.

Our philosophy

Doggy Oasis International is not like any other rescue. We evaluate the physical and mental well-being of our dogs before even considering them for adoption and make sure they are ready for family life.

That's why we take the time to get to know them, train them and give them all the love they deserve so that their trust in humans is restored. Their daily life at the shelter consists of long walks, training exercises, and numerous activities outside in the city.

Our dogs are socialized and also participate in a therapeutic programs where they interact with children, the elderly, and people with disabilities.

Working in such settings, combined with our training techniques we have been able to help truly socialize these dogs and prepare them for adoption while also educating the community. Our team is always ready to assist you in the adoption process in order to help you find your suitable future companion.


Faced with numerous dangers and a life on the streets,our dogs often arrive injured, ill, and very traumatized. After a brief quarantine period for initial observations and for the safety of the rest of our pack, a health assessment is conducted. All our dogs are cleaned, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for parasites, and sterilized. At the same time, we also focus on improving their nutrition status, teaching them how to play, making sure they rest, and exercise. This ensures that our dogs can fully recover, find balance and get to know us at the same time.


There are numerous external dangers that our dogs face before arriving at the sanctuary, such as: road hazards, diseases and parasites, encounters with uninformed humans, rejection, and lack of sterilization. These stray, abandoned, and rejected dogs are safe once they arrive at our sanctuary as we take the time to treat, sterilize and properly medicate each one.


Throughout the day at the sanctuary,our dogs are trained and stimulated through play, agility training, group exercises, and individual exercises. Each of these activities allow us to work on trust, care, and obedience, and to assess our dogs' knowledge and individual abilities. The work that we do with our dogs enables us to find homesfor dogs that are confident, accustomed to training and basic skills, and used to being manipulated.


Using our dogs and all the experiences we have had with them,we aim to convey our values and knowledge to the local population to create a larger change. We visit schools, hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, and other healthcare facilities with our dogs to raise awareness and educate the community while also entertaining, comforting, and serving our community. Our dogs are true therapists! We raise public awareness about the value of these animals, as well as the importance of protecting these dogs by bringing them into these various facilities and showing how wonderful dogs truly are with just a little attention and love.

We raise people's awareness about the value of these animals and the interest of protecting them and wildlife.


Once rescued and placed in safety, our dogs are named, loved, and pampered, often for the first time in their entire lives. This allows us to establish a bond with these dogs and build trust allowing us to know each and every dog in our pack. By receiving love from us, our dogs give us a lot in return, and they are patiently waiting for the opportunity to be adopted so they can also share all this love!
