 Welcome to SOS Algarve Animals.  We rely entirely on donations and support, so please make a donation and help us keep helping.

Until 2014 the efforts and resources of SOS Algarve Animals have been used to rescue and rehome on average 400 animals a year.  Sadly, we feel that although our work has saved many, the situation for those animals we are unable to help only gets worse.  Resources (time and money) are limited, and this has meant we have been unable to work as hard as we would like towards sterilization, education and animal welfare.

For 2014 we will be dedicating the majority of resources to these projects as we try to realize these goals.  In just two months we have sterilised nearly 500 dogs and cats who are living either on the street or at risk of getting pregnant.  This DOES make a difference.  It is the only way to improve the lives of all animals in Portugal and the only solution to the number of unwanted dogs and cats.  To read more about our sterilisations campaigns visit Special Features and Stories, or sterilisation.

We hope for your continued support as we continue our work to improve the quality of life of animals in the Algarve.
