One of the missions of The Shelter Project is to help in the improvement of the infrastucture of associations and animal shelters. Come help us accomplish this mission!

Mr. Henrique and Mrs. Bárbara are a couple that dedicated a big part of their lives to animals, having  250 of them. Time passing by, they built Abrigo de Sta. Bárbara, in Seixal, and right now they have around 100 animals, cats and dogs. Some of these animals are quite old, needing a lot of medical attention. To keep the shelter running, help and donations are always needed, as well as the indispensable help of friends, on a voluntary basis.

At the moment, one of the areas of the shelter needs to be restored in a way that permits the building of a cattery for the cats that live with the couple in their house right now. However, the shelter does not have the financial resources for this restoration, taking into account that what they have, is being used for the daily care of animals and the vet expenses that constantly arise.

After getting acquainted with Mrs. Bárbara, Mr. Henrique and their animals, The Shelter Project proposed to help with whatever we could contribute. We managed to gather pet food donations and blankets to help them get through the winter. Now we want to help the couple with having a safe and secure place to keep the cats that they have inside their house and give them back their own space. We did a budget estimation for the restoration of the desired area, taking advantage of the container that is already there for the cattery. A kennel would have to be built for the two dogs that are in the mentioned area at the moment, to assure that the future co-habitation with the cats will be a safe one.

Therefore we present you this budget, so that everyone can contribute to this construction and help us making it happen.

About the author

We are a non-profit organization, created by a group of volunteers that are driven by the will and determination to create a better world on behalf of all animals. Our aim is to make a difference in the lives of those who need it the most and that, too often, don't get any kind of help or support. 

We work with any association and/or shelter in need of our help, with the purpose of making significant improvements to their hygiene, security and space conditions.

We also help in collecting donations and in promoting any animal that is up for adoption. We organize events, like dog walks and shelter day*, to get people familiar with the associations/shelters/kennels and like this to follow their needs.

We want to make a difference in the lives of the thousands of animals that are living in shelters right now, and also in the lives of those that fight for them, and strive to help them, day after day!

*day dedicated to one association/shelter where the participants are being part of volunteering activities. For example: walking the animals and cleaning and restoring the spaces.

    Queremos mais uma vez agradecer, em nosso nome e do Abrigo de Sta. Bárbara, por todos os contributos recebidos. Tem significado muito para nós ver esta campanha crescer todos os dias e sentir que, afinal, é possível cumprir esta missão.

    Apelamos por isso a todos os apoiantes desta campanha para que nos ajudem a chegar a mais pessoas. Passem a palavra a quem achem que também se interessa pela causa animal, convençam-nos a ajudar-nos. É muito importante que, juntos, lutemos pelo sucesso deste projeto até ao fim! Vamos a isso?
