About Us

Abrigo was created by Anabela Cardoso in 1995, its main purpose to rescue and provide shelter to abandoned dogs (abrigo is portuguese for shelter). Currently, Abrigo is managed by the Amigos da Abrigo Association, created in 2014.

We are a non-profit organisation funded solely by membership fees and donations from individuals and companies who support our cause.

In our shelter, we house dozens of cats and dogs, for which we provide food, medication, veterinary treatment, and all associated daily care in order to keep them in tiptop condition.

In order to be able to accomplish our goal, your contribution is essential.
