We are a newly developped animal shelter formed to help abandoned and mistreated animals in the Algarve region.
Our kennels are fully insulated, the dogs are exercised daily and given lots of love and attention :-)
Our goal is to give a second chance to those abandonned dogs by finding them new loving families and homes, locally and abroad :-)
We also aim to educate and inform the local population about the benefits of sterilising their animals and the raise awareness about animal welfare.
Many previous volunteers had their heart stolen by one of our shelter dogs and ended up adopting one, giving them a new loving home ! :-) So if you also fall in love with one of our rescued dogs and want to adopt one, we'll walk you through the adoption process ;-)
Learn a lot about Animal Welfare, about the differences in attitudes towards animals in Portugal compared to other cultures. Opportunities to explore the local community and experience different cultures. Possibility of learning the Portuguese language along the way!
We need help with cleaning kennels, walking, exercising and socializing the dogs, and general maintenance of the shelter and property. You need to be hard working and flexible. If you don't like lots of cleaning or the smell of dog poo, then we are not the place for you! You must like walking, you may walk up to 10km (if not more) a day with the doggies.

Accommodation is comprised of shared bed rooms (two or three to a room) in a wooden house and 3 mobile homes. Shared bathroom, kitchen and living space.
Food is not included, you will have a trip per week to the nearby supermarket to do your personal shopping.
For any extra shopping, the town is only a 20 minutes away by walk. You will enjoy it since it’s a lovely country walk with a beautiful scenery.
Drinks (water, sodas) are included.
We have a swimming pool you can enjoy and lots of green landscape and nature.
We can never promise that the doggies won't bark in the night and you will be able to hear them from the accommodation. Most of the time they are quiet but occasionally something sets them off barking for a little while! You may also be required to sleep with a dog or puppy in your room as we do have some house dogs!
We are situated just 5 minutes out of Loule, Algarve and only 20 minutes drive from the nearest beach! There's lots to see and do in your free time! Loule bus station is 5 minutes away, the train station is just 10 minutes away and Faro airport is 20 mins away. Good travel links around Portugal. Loule is a historical market town, very pretty with lots of little cafes and bars, a theatre, gypsy market etc.
