You want to help dogs get back on their paws?
Then you’ve come to the right place!
Can you imagine how much it costs to run a shelter with many sick furry noses, to feed and water them, to offer them veterinary care and everything they need to forget their sometimes bad experiences from the past and to get healthy? If not, let me tell you, it’s a lot.
Besides the obvious care costs like food, water, medication, leashes, harnesses, collars, blankets, cots, toys, hutches, fences, etc., there are also veterinary treatments, repairs, maintenance costs, insurance, electricity, and so on. The list is almost endless. Only for the work itself there are no costs, because all helpers in Portugal and Germany do their work on a voluntary basis.
As we are financed purely by donations and membership fees, it is incredibly important for our project to be able to count on dear and loyal animal lovers who ensure with their donations and sponsorship money that it can go on and on. Without these kind people there would be no PLACE for STRAYS and all the furry noses we have already taken in, nursed back to health and placed in loving families would continue to live (mostly ill) on the streets, eke out their existence on a chain or, in the worst case, would no longer be alive.
Do you think our work is good and important? Would you like to help? Then there are many possibilities from which you can choose the one that suits you best.
Of course, financial donations or sponsorships are important for our pups so that we can cover all our costs. But you can also send us donations in kind. Of course, our pelt-noses are always very happy to receive them! And if you would like to come and see our heartfelt project for yourself and lend a hand, you are very welcome as a visitor or volunteer.
We would like to thank you for your interest and support – in whatever form!
