June 2015.......We have completed our move to our new shop. Its bigger and better.  Our staff are there to welcome you.

In 2014 we helped 2111 animals in the Western Algarve (this included sterilizations, emergency treatments, and vaccinations).  We gave financial support to a number of sancturies/charities: Cadela Carlotta, Associacao Bamboo, L.A.P.S., A.D.A.P., A.E.Z.A., the cat sanctuary at Odiaxere, and of course the cats at the ferry crossing, and those at the car-park behind the Lagos Marina.
