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

Our dog of the month is BARNEY!

Barney is a sweet boy that is very playful but love, love, loves to be by your side. He would be a great addition to any family!

Cat of the month


AMBER is our cat of the month! She is becoming more social with help from the volunteers. She would really blossom in her own home. Please come meet Amber and see why we chose her as Cat of the Month.
