Animal Rescue Algarve

Animal Rescue Algarve

A shelter for animal in the Algarve

“It is estimated that there are 10,000 abandoned animals in the Algarve region. Our mission is to help abandoned and sick animals, to provide veterinary treatment, neuter, socialise and re-home them,” explained Richardson.

Because one of the biggest concerns of the association is “to treat animals with dignity, respect and comfort”, Richardson quickly took the decision to “build, from scratch, a rehoming centre of modern and eco-friendly design”.

Facilities will include a reception, waiting room, veterinary office and operating theatre, divided sections for puppies, adult and senior, a quarantine area, a training field to interact with the dogs and a cat shelter.

Accommodation for volunteers (including those coming from abroad) will be built to ensure the sanctuary is surveilled and safely guarded 24/7.
