Friends of Canil Portimao is the registered non-profit organization of volunteers.  Our main purpose is to take care of the Canil Portimao dogs and cats and help with adoption.

We are in need of volunteers to foster animals, walk the dogs, and socialize puppies.

We highly appreciate donations as they help us to pay medical bills and neuter Canil's dogs and cats.

We have auctions, luncheons, and participate in markets to raise money to provide medication and to sterilize the animals.

Please join us in our effort to help the orphaned animals!

LAIKA 1_edited_edited.jpg
Dog of the week

Our Dog of the week is Laika!

Laika is one of our sweetheart senior dogs who is desperate to be in a calm and quiet home. She really struggles in the canil environment with all of the noise and is always curled up in the same spot looking depressed. She really has given up hope of being adopted and loved but there must be someone out there for our Laika! She stills dreams of an owner who can help bring out her personality and confidence as she can be nervous around new people and places. 

Visit Canil Portimão Monday-Friday from 14:00 till 16:00 to see Laika, although she won’t get up to say hello. Alternatively, volunteer at our Thursday dog walking starting at 9:00 to walk with Laika and see how special she really is!

Cat of the week

Our cat of the week is Kaya! Kaya was rescued from the house where she was locked for some time without food and care. It took a while for Kaya to adapt to the new life in the gatil. She was very scared in the beginning, hiding under the rugs. But now she is confident and always up for cuddles and treats. Kaya is a nice cat and deserves a true home where she can be a member of the family and nobody will abandon her again. Please visit us to meet Kaya!

Every Thursday at 9:00
