2016 Summary

There are many people who help us, many people who give and care and support in all the ways that they can…. we are grateful no matter how small… for every penny makes a difference. There are many people who find animals, and who generously pay towards that animal’s costs, there are many people who adopt and give generous adoption fees, many people who sterilise street animals and give what they can, others who hold tea parties, luncheons, donate a sale of their profits, or even their tips into a money jar. It is too many to name everyone, but please accept our greatest thank you to everyone for all that they do to help the animals. There are also some very special people who continually give throughout the year, perhaps a few times a year, perhaps even monthly, to support the work we do and to keep helping the animals. Our greatest thank you to the following people, who donate generously time and again throughout the year, to Christine P, KJG, Susanne L, MC De V, Kate D, A3Art, Make A Bid Make A Difference, Niki M, Sharon RY, and Christine & Buckhard G. Your constant support is so very much appreciated… thank you. We would also like to thank everyone who has helped or held an event to raise money for SOS Algarve Animals and our work, especially towards sterilisation. Thank you to the Central Algarve Ladies Lunch Club, the Nora Group, the Alte Group, Jacqueline Ekins and Anne, Jilly Lister and Quinta Jacintina. Thank you again… from us… but most importantly from the animals.

Vintage Tea Pary at Quinta Jacintina

What a wonderful and successful day was had June 15 at the Vintage Tea Party in celebration of the Queens birthday at Hotel Quinta Jacintina. A beautiful location, relaxed, fun, fantastic tea, cakes and sandwiches, games, auctions, even a star guest doggie…so many generous lovers of animals came to show their support. We cannot thank everyone enough for their kindness and generosity and we truly hope everyone enjoyed the lovely afternoon.

We also cannot say enough in grateful appreciation of Sally, Hotel Quinta Jacintina and the staff at this beautiful boutique hotel. They organised the entire event for SOS Algarve Animals. Not only providing the stunning location, impeccable service, organising the games, music, prizes just about everything… but they also have staggered us with their generosity by gifting all that was provided. The food, drinks, music, even the many prizes have all been provided by Hotel Quinta Jacintina and Sally so that there are absolutely no costs to come off the amount raised and every penny raised will go towards the sterilisation of cats and dogs in the Algarve. Their love and support of animals in the Algarve, and this tremendously important cause, is without comparison. An astonishing €7,282.00  was raised! Every penny of this money will go towards the sterilisation of cats and dogs across the algarve… either on the street or from low income families who cannot otherwise afford the operation. Not only helping with reducing the population of unwanted dogs and cats in the Algarve….. but with making the quality of life for each and every dog and cat helped that much better. An immense thank you also must go to the many volunteers for their kindness and tireless manning of the many games….Kev, Niki, Nicola, Shauna, Jenny, Richard, David and Liz… to name but a few, but there were many more helping behind the scnes. Thank you to everyone for your support, generosity and help in making the day such a success.

Thank you to Sharon R-Y, Kate D, Fiona P, Diane M, M’eye P, Jane G and Susan D without whose help he would not have recovered.

We would like to thank Kate D, Edward F, Vanessa S, Louise M and Christine S who answered our urgent appeal and helped to sponsor Nina’s emergency trip to the vet. Quinta Jacintina We are overjoyed by the kindness of everyone involved in making the bridge event held at Quinta Jacintina the weekend of April 8 such an amazing success. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended, everyone who donated, our sponsors for all their gifts and a special thank you to everyone who worked so incredibly hard.  It is such a beautiful location and the entire weekend was magnificently run.  We are so happy to announce that the event raised an astounding €9200.00 euros.  This will make a tremendous difference to the work we do and the number of animals who we will be able to sterilise. As all these funds will be used for sterilisation, we estimate that over the next few months we will now be able to sterilise another 175+ dogs and cats.  All will be dogs and cats either from the street or from low income families who could not otherwise afford this operation and who, without this help, would continue to give birth to yet more unwanted puppies or kittens. We are also thrilled that Quinta Jacintina has offered a further event to be held on June 8, a celebration of the Queen’s Birthday” and we hope to see you there. MerryLegs Drain Cleaning We would like to thank MerryLegs Drain Cleaning who came to fix a client’s drains…..(which they did superbly) and instead of payment asked that €100,00 donation be made to SOS Algarve Animals…. and if any animal lover has a drain problem please contact them, their work was superb.

March, 2016

March has been an incredible busy month for sterilisations.  It is a stressful month, as so many dogs and especially cats become urgent cases as they are at risk of becoming pregnant at this time of the year.  We have sterilized 116 animals in March!!!!  (103 cats and 13 dogs). Without sterilisation these animals WILL very soon be giving birth to yet more unwanted puppies and kittens….. so in March we have accepted far more sterilisations than we had the funds for and were able to budget for… This now means sadly even more animals will have to be wait-listed next month without fundraising help – which we find a devastating decision as even on our wait-list animals are at risk of giving birth….and we know that for each animal not sterilised there is a huge risk that there will be an unwanted litter…yet more animals looking for a  home…. Individual Donations Our greatest thanks to Sharon R-Y, Kerry JG, Steven K, Kate D, Edward F, Vanessa S, Louise M, Christine S , and M De Vreede for your support and generosity and donations received in March Other donations Thank you to Christine P, Susanne, Burkhard and Christine for their kind donation and virtual adoptions.

A HUGE thank you to Kevin & Gill ! Kevin had his 65th birthday coming up, and they decided instead of asking for presents, to ask for donations to be made to us! A truly wonderful gesture and an amazing amount of 1800,00 euro was raised and donated to allow us to continue helping the animals in the Algarve. This donation will be put to good use, as there are more and more animals in need of help, and less money available due to the economic situation.  So a very special thank you from us and all the animals. DONATIONS We would like to thank everyone who has made a donation towards the welfare of all the animals in our care. Thank you to Leigh A, Mary B, Rosie B, Anne M, Marion L, Lesley W, Nicola Maria S, Carlos S, Carolyn L, Patricia W, Anne B, Michaela T-M, Robert Jan vd B,  Sally R. A special thank you to Karen and Down to the Bone for their donation jar for SOSAA, we received €117,50.
