    Hello fellow travellers and volunteers,

    My name is Vera and I am 31 years old. I am writing from the beautiful region of Baixo -Alentejo in Portugal in the city of Moura to make a special and urgent appeal.
    We are a small private association which is dedicated to saving the abandoned , neglected dogs around the area. The dogs stay in our care while we attempt to find them the right family and a permanent home.
    At the present moment we shelter 70 wonderful and amazing dogs.
    We also have no volunteers as it has been quite a challenge to attract local people to our shelter and to fight animal abandonement. I have been working at the shelter and taking care of these dogs for 5 years, but the workload is getting too heavy for me. I'm also appealing to people who travel together ( couples, or friends) which would not mind staying for a long term volunteering program as I'm looking for long-term help.
    I will do my best to answer all emails as soon as possible.
    Thank you for your time!

    Wow. Where to start? I believe that working with animals can truly change your life and open your hearts. Dogs offer unparalleled love and the ways they can improve the lives of humans are unquestionable.
    It’s quite remarkable to see how all dogs react to love and how they change. I believe you will come home everyday and feel that you have really made a difference.
    I believe it can be a life-changing experience for you.

    We are in need of volunteers to help out with the simplest jobs: cleaning, walking the dogs and most importantly just giving out some love to all of these beautiful animals….

    Nature lovers will enjoy the beauty of this region and the vast landscape of Alentejo with it's cork oaks and olive trees. It is a place of calm and tranquility. This area is also great for connecting with mother nature.
    Moura has an arab past and it holds the ruins of a 13th century castle!
    Around the town it is also worth visiting some areas, where I will be more than happy to show you around.
