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

Alex is our dog of the month for June.  Alex is full of love, a good walker, and likes nothing more than playing frisbee!  He has a cheeky smile and would make a wonderful addition to any home.

Cat of the month


Our  cat of the month is KITTENS! We currently have nine perfect (purr-fect) balls of love needing a 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.
