We ask for 1000 euros to buy 12 dog houses for our older dogs, who already hurt from painful bone and articulation conditions.

Patinhas homeless or "Homeless Paws" is a Portuguese animal protection association, nearby Oporto. We shelter 110 dogs and 80 cats. The rate of pet`s abandonment in Portugal is very high, and animal shelters struggle with lots of difficulties, such as overcrowding and excessive debts to veterinary clinics and hospitals. We created this crowdfunding in order to provide a warmer winter for our resident dogs, by giving them individual dog houses, so they can feel protected from the very cold winter we are facing now. We ask for 1000 euros to buy 12 dog houses for our older dogs, who already hurt from painful bone and articulation conditions.

About the author

My name is Ana Paula Castro, I am 54 years old, I am a doctor with the specialty of Clinical Pathology, and a guest professor of Medical Microbiology at the Abel Salazar Institute of Biomedical Sciences (ICBAS) in Porto.

My passion for animals led me to create the Patinhas Homeless Association, 8 years ago, in Espinho, in collaboration with other people, who like me, are sensitive to the animal cause. At the time, the purpose of the creation of the association was to care for 70 dogs that were abandoned on isolated land in Paramos, Espinho. Since then, we have collected and given over 2000 dogs and cats for adoption. Our aim is that the collected animals are kept as little time as possible. After basic veterinary care, which includes deworming, vaccination and sterilization, they are disseminated on various platforms to promote their responsible adoption. The motivation for this project is to give comfort to the big dogs in the shelter, in this cold winter, providing them with shelter in thermal huts.

Budget and due dates

For the purchase of 12 thermal huts, within 1 month, we ask for donations worth 1000 euros
