Latest News

2018- May. In this month we carried out a sterilisation campaign. This proved extremely successful and we issued 251 vouchers for animal sterilisation. Ourparticipating vets at Lagos vetinary clinic, clinica da ferrel, pet vet, naturavet and Sagres are now busy doing the sterilisations.

2017 has been yet another good year for the Nandi Charity Shop despite a slow start in the first quarter. Both shops are doing well. Shop volunteers and all those working behind the scenes have done an excellent job in maintaining our income levels, allowing us not only to continue supporting the street animals but also to expand our support in a number of areas.

In 2017 we have again managed to achieve our target of spending over 70% of our income on the animals.

Of course, much of our work would not be possible without the support of our local vets. All of them, (Lagos Vetinary Clinic, Clinica Vetinaria do Ferrel, Naturavet, Lagos PetVet) provide us with an excellent service often with advice and non- medical help when we are faced with out of the ordinary events.

We are hoping to expand our participating vets during 2018 to cover the more remote areas of the Western Algarve.

Several new initiatives have taken place during 2017:

  • . We have given financial support to several new cat colonies
  • . We have participated in a major cat “Trap, Neuter, Return” (TNR) programme covering the whole of the Vila Do Bispo area from Sagres to Burgau. In 2017 we have neutered 57 male cats and 86 female cats The work is set to continue in 2018.
  • Nandi itself has funded the sterilisation of a total of 1,382 cats and dogs in 2017 and we have even paid for the sterilisation of one donkey.
  • . We have spoken to Lagos Camara about a similar TNR programme and a children’s educational programme. This is an ongoing initiative and will continue through 2018.
  • . The cats at the “Lagos cat hotel” have been well looked after withy the help of Nandi funding.
  • We continue to support our local sanctuaries at Bamboo, Cadela Carlota, Vila do Bispo, and Alzejur. This support includes both food subsidies and vetinary assistance.
  • We are also supporting the local human community with clothes and bric-a-brac donations to our local orphanages and to the less well-off within the community.
  • Our non-saleable but serviceable clothes now go to Africa to support the various foreign initiatives in that country.
