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 Pimpao!

Pimpao is a senior dog that doesn't deserve to spend his last days in the canil. He would be a easy dog to take care of as he doesn't need a lot of exercise and loves to be by your side. !

Cat of the month


Gerald is our cat of the month! He was in the canil with his brother Fitz who has been adopted.  Now it's Gerald's turn.  He is affectionate with people and other cats.
