CãoViver has been around for four years and since then it rescued hundreds of stray animals, hoping to find a home for all of them.
Rescues abandoned animals, gives a home, helps them physically and psychologically to recover and make sure they are adopted by someone that really cares.
It also has a social role in society, trying to send a message to children, adults and seniors of what´s going on in animal causes.
The association's work is completely voluntary, participating in dozen...
In order to keep up the work we have been doing since we started, we will need a lot of help because it is very expensive to build a shelter with everything that is mandatory.

Budget and due dates
We are looking for a new terrain that let us build our home.
We waste a lot of money monthly and everything is donated by individuals. The boxes that we have cost 11 000 (it will go with us) but by experience, we know that in order to build a new shelter, we will waste more that 6000 euros.
We will need the floor of the boxes, a house in order to support the activity, fridge, we will need to buy more boxes... we do not even know if we will need to buy a terrain, for now we are waiting for a response of a city hall.
We wish to start the project until the end of 2015.
