Welcome to SOS Algarve Animals. We rely entirely on donations and support, so please make a donation and help us keep helping.
We are a charity helping abandoned animals of the Algarve. We help animals on the street, from shelters, from gypsy camps and many other places. Portugal is one of the worst countries in Europe for animal neglect and abandonment, the animals truly need our help.
On average SOS Algarve Animals rehomes between 300 and 400 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens every year, as well as sterilizing approximately 600 dogs and cats every year. Even so, there is a never ending number of animals who still need help.
Our Animals For Rehoming:
We work closely with our animals one on one. Our centre is a rehoming centre, it is not a shelter. We work with less than 50 animals at any time. For each animal we work with we perform in depth assessments and evaluations. All adult animals are sterilized. All animals are microchipped, vaccinated and fully vetted.
We offer follow-up support and care. We want to ensure that both animal and new owner are well matched and happy together forever. For more information about our rehoming, our centre, and how we work with our animals please visit Our Rehoming Centre and How We Work. To view our available animals seeking their forever homes please visit Available Animals.
Other Ways We Help:
- All adult animals we work with are sterilized ….always!
- We operate “CNR”: Catch, neuter & release for those females living happily on the street or when a family does not have the financial means to afford a sterilization.
- Sterilization is one of our biggest aims and objectives
Our hope is that by publicizing the Algarve animal situation and by offering support things will get better. Only if everyone becomes more active and stops ignoring the problem will the long-term solution have a chance to improve.
