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 Pateta "goofy"  in Portuguese is a very sweet boy that just wants a cuddle and walk or two each day.  Pateta has spent the most time at the Canil.  Lets find him a home!

Cat of the month


Poppy is an adorable sweet young girl! She is 8 month old and sterilized. She loves cuddles and is very playful. 

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.
