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.
