Friends, we have lots of requests for help, for street animals that have been run over, abandoned litters, sick colony cats. Our debts at the clinics are close to 30,000 euros, which is why we ask for your support in this campaign.

The Patinhas Sem Lar Association, based in Espinho, was created 10 years ago. We have a canine shelter with capacity for 110 dogs, and a cattery with capacity for 80 cats. All animals are properly vaccinated, dewormed and neutered if they are over 6 months old. In addition to the funds spent to keep sheltered animals in the best sanitary conditions, there is also the high cost of animals collected from the street in need of urgent veterinary care: animals run over with bone fractures, animals with parasitic and other diseases, litters of dogs and cats abandoned newborns. We currently have around 30,000 euros in debt at veterinary clinics, and requests for help are coming in daily. We created this campaign with the aim of raising 2500 euros to pay off part of the debt, related to the treatment of the countless litters that arrive at us daily. This year there have been many cases of panleukopenia, an extremely deadly virus for unvaccinated kittens. Several litters have also arrived with serious eye damage, due to untreated infections. Friends, we ask for your help. Contribute to this cause if you can. Thanks!

About the author

My name is Ana Paula Castro, I am 57 years old, I am a doctor specializing in 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 Associação Patinhas sem Lar, 10 years ago, in Espinho, in collaboration with other people, who like me, are sensitive to the animal cause. At the time, the aim of creating the association was to care for 70 dogs that were abandoned on an isolated plot of land in Paramos, Espinho. Since then, we have collected and given up for adoption more than 2000 dogs and cats. Our aim is for the collected animals to be housed for as little time as possible. After basic veterinary care, which includes deworming, vaccination and sterilization, they are published on various platforms to promote responsible adoption. The motivation for this project is to make the care we provide viable, by paying off part of the veterinary debts we assume.
