We are a registered animal protection society in the Western Algarve in Portugal. We have a small cattery and a dog sanctuary with, on average, 100 abandoned dogs and puppies inside a large piece of fenced land. We are looking for volunteers to help look after the dogs for between 2 and 4 hours per day. The work involves feeding them and ensuring they have sufficient water, cleaning the areas, spending time with them, helping to train them, walking them, making sure they have enough shade and shelters and helping to erect new pounds. All our dogs live in large pounds with space to run and play with other dogs they get along with. They all have proper shaded areas and trees or bushes for shade too. They are all happy, this is not a sad shelter! Portugal has a large number of abandoned and unwanted dogs. We have sterilised over 240 dogs in the past 18 months and found good homes for over 70 dogs so far this year in different countries throughout Europe and need voluntary help to continue this work. The work is very satisfying, fun and challenging. The Western Algarve is a very pretty place with a lovely climate in which to be. Can you help us?
