We are a registered non-profit organization of volunteers.  Our main purpose is to help take care of the canil dogs and cats and find them homes in Portugal, UK, Germany, Holland and Belgium. We walk, groom, neuter and take medical care of the dogs and cats. When possible, they go to foster homes to help prepare them for adoption.

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

Dog of the month

Mick is once again our dog of the month as we need to find this young boy a foster or forever home.  He is about 10 months old Alentejo and full of so much love. Mick loves people and to play.  Please come and meet Mick.

Cat of the month


Our  cat of the month is once again  KITTENS! We currently have many kittens needing a loving home. These are just two of the sweet ones waiting for you. 

COVID has restricted our ability to have luncheons and participate in flea markets to raise money to support the animals.  Until restrictions are lifted, please visit our ongoing 'buy now' FB auction page.
