Focinhos & Bigodes is a nonprofit Association for Abandoned Animals Protection and Environment that fights, unconditionally, for the dignity of our hearts four-paws.
Focinhos & Bigodes is composed by volunteers whom attention to abandoned, street, or mistreated dogs, mistreated is a job for the community. The Association has a kennel for up to 60 dogs, which is located in Lisbon at Rua Padre Carlos dos Santos, in São Domingos de Benfica and some of its members shelter, sterilize and follow some colonies of cats.
The purpose of Focinhos & Bigodes is to direct the animals for a responsible adoption, where they are provided access to a dignified life and properly fed with proper veterinary care, as well as attention and love. Only then can give opportunity to others in need. All dogs protected by Focinhos & Bigodes are vaccinated, dewormed and sterilized, which implies a great effort, because Focinhos & Bigodes has no own resources and it depends on the good of civil society.
At the moment, and taking into account the season ahead, the need for changes in the kennel doors intensifies due to the well-being of our dogs. The doors of each box and the ones that separate input/output areas are in poor condition and needed to be replaced as soon as possible.
