Who are we?

Sterilise Our Strays is the operating name of ANIMAL AID – ASSOCIACAO PROTETORA DOS ANIMAIS NIPC 510205372, a registered non-profit organisation whose purpose is the sterilisation of cats & dogs belonging to the street or cats & dogs belonging to low income families who otherwise have no means to pay for this operation We rely entirely on donations to continue our work. Your money donations ensure that we can continue our valuable and much needed work.

Our focus is upon the education of responsible pet ownership as well as the publication of the plight of dogs and cats in the Algarve. We seek to provide financial assistance with "catch & spay and release" programs for mostly female cats & dogs.

How We Help

Our help is with sterilisation of Algarve dogs & cats, puppies & kittens from the street and/or belonging to low income families who cannot otherwise afford the operation. 


Sterilising dogs and cats protects the health and wellbeing of the animals and prevents more strays wondering the streets and endangering themselves and others


There are many taboos and beliefs when it comes to discussing sterilisation. We aim to show why sterilising is needed for the welfare and wellbeing of the animals


We offer help and guidance on how to pay for the sterilisation of animals if you cannot afford the operation. Funding comes from fundraising activities and grant applications
