We are a registered animal protection society near Vila do Bispo in the South Western Algarve in Portugal. We have a dog sanctuary with up to 100 abandoned dogs and puppies at any one time. We are looking for volunteers to help look after the dogs for between 4 and 6 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 maintaining the 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, with comfy beds 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 sterilised over 85 dogs last year and found homes for 105 in different countries throughout Europe. This year we have found homes for 83 so far. We need voluntary help to continue our work, which is very satisfying, fun and challenging. The South-Western Algarve is a very pretty place with a lovely climate. We are situated in the beautiful National Park, which a protected area. We offer a lovely large one-bedroomed caravan and also a wooden chalet for accommodation. People travelling in their own camper vans are also very welcome. Can you help us?
