Inspired by the People's Meeting Dome (Denmark), it will be our link with the community, visible and available for multi-interactions. A space of ideas and actions thought by you and us always with the objective of animal welfare that will become the pillar of sustainability of our mission. A space for interaction in a didactic context; for conviviality, workshops and various events; for animal and animal therapies (Reiki, acupuncture, communication, physiotherapy); sessions of Yoga, Tai- chi, Chi Kung, etc.

In addition to the existing shelters, this project includes the construction of an area called “Rehoming”. It will be a fenced area, intended for the transition to adoption and / or resettlement in the village with an area of ​​care and interaction with animals. It will include a nursery for kittens and a nursing home for senior animals.

The project also foresees the construction of a “Multi-Interaction Space”, the soul of our mission. Inspired by the People’s Meeting Dome (Denmark), it will be our link to the community, visible and available for multi-interactions. In itself it will be na empty space to be filled with ideas. It can be used as a playground for kittens.

A space for interaction in didactic context; for socializing, workshops and various events; for therapies with humans and animals (reiki, acupuncture, communication, physiotherapy); Yoga sessions, Tai Chi, Chi Kung, etc.

About the author

In the Garden of Cats Life has a Value, not a Cost.

We are the “Garden of Cats” (Gatos do Jardim)


We were born from a a huge amount of work and dedication to an existing cat colony, the "Garden of Cats" that has been around for 9 years, and we formed the ONG with the same name in September 2016 to better help and protect them and to take responsibility for them - the "Gatos do Jardim cat village" the first true cat village in the country, built under the 2015 Cascais Participatory Budgeting Project, OP15, which won the community vote.


 The inauguration of the village of Gatos do Jardim was on September 7, 2017.
Gatos do Jardim’s mission:
We prioritize the quality and love of treatment / protection and not the quantity. Each being is special and we want to treat each one with the greatest care and responsibility.  We do not intend to have a cattery where animals live in cages.  We dream of the concept of sanctuary where animals live in their habitat, protected, safe and happy.  They will all have the veterinary care they need. We want the village of Gatos do Jardim to be a point of reference for Cascais and Portugal and to set an example of how to care for animals. We want to see stray animals, in this case cats, but all animals in general, not as a plague to eliminate but as our companions and neighbours that we should care and love.  We aim to re-educate the population through actions, events and even simply observing this colony, making them sensible to adoption and protection of animals.
We love all animals but focus on the magic of the cat. Cats are extremely sensitive animals, we believe that cohabiting with cats is therapeutic in itself and we want to go further by helping them through alternative therapies when they need them and  harness their presence for therapies with human beings. Cats clean us, cure us, they are extremely complex, telepathic and magical beings. We want to make people aware of this wonderful animal through our therapies or simply by observing and interacting with them helping to promote more adoptions but also to change the stigma that still exists around saying that this animal is a plague. Do is not enough. We have to change mindsets for a more animal-sensitive world.
Awareness raising is the keyword of everything we do.
Awareness of the benefits of adoption (adopting an animal is really good for your health), awareness of abuse and abandonment, safety awareness, animal welfare and health care, awareness of alternative treatments and therapies, awareness of more natural nutrition and preventive medicine, awareness of wandering animals, awareness of volunteering, etc.

We are the Garden Cats dreaming of an animal Sanctuary.
Join us in this wonderful mission.

Budget and due dates

We will build this project in phases: when we have raised € 8000 we will build the Multi Interaction Space that will help us fund the rest of the project as well.
By raising more 9000 € we will be able to put the fence of Re-Homing Space. And by raising another 10000 € we completed the project with the shelters and the nursery / senior space that also includes the space landscaping project. You can consult here the plans and budgets. These figures include the PPL platform commission.

    Não foi desta mas não desistimos. O projecto será uma realidade!

    Caros apoiantes e amigos dos Gatos do Jardim,
    Vimos com tristeza informar que não conseguimos o nosso objectivo de juntar 8mil euros para a construção do nosso Espaço de Terapias para e com animais. Este espaço viria sustentar a nossa missão e nos ajudar não só a curar e tratar alguns dos animais com estas terapias como a salvar mais vidas com os o que conseguíssemos angariar através dos workshops, sessões de Yoga e Chi Kung, terapias alternativas, acupuntura, palestras, etc.
    Sabemos que temos um bom projecto e não vamos desistir.
    Este projecto era paralelo à construção de um espaço fechado na aldeia dos gatos do jardim, onde pretendemos ter um berçário, um espaço para gatos séniores e um espaço de quarentena e realojamento na aldeia de gatos que estão a viver na rua em perigo de vida e/ou de gatos que precisam de um espaço para viver pois ficaram sem o seu. Pensámos financiar primeiro o espaço das terapias pois com o que conseguíssemos angariar poderíamos financiar este espaço Rehoming. Temos a noção agora que não conseguimos explicar bem esta nossa ideia e que muita gente ainda não está interessado no conceito de bem-estar através de terapias alternativas tanto para humanos como para animais.
    Vamos reagrupar, pensar, reconceber a apresentação do projecto, procurar quem entenda de marketing para fazermos uma campanha profissional e procurar padrinhos/madrinhas VIP que nos possam dar mais visibilidade e levar o projecto aos meios de comunicação. Se entre vocês há alguém que tenha mais ideias e que conheça alguém de marketing ou uma figura pública importante que goste de animais, ame gatos e queira dar a cara pelo projecto, ficaremos muito agradecidos.
    O vosso apoio não foi em vão, pois irá à mesma salvar muitas vidas. No entanto se desejarem que vos devolvamos o valor doado, por favor contactem-nos para gatosdojardim@gmail.com com o vosso IBAN e valor faremos a transferência logo que possível continuando muito agradecidos pelo vosso apoio.
    Acima de tudo somos mais com vocês e gostaríamos muito que nos continuassem a apoiar com ideias e até quaisquer recursos que possam ter desde voluntariado a ajudar no marketing etc.
    Não desistimos. Juntos somos mais fortes e a nossa missão é salvar vidas.
    Mantenham-se em contacto para se manterem informados sobre o futuro deste novo projecto.
    Muito vos agradecemos e os gatos (cães, passarinhos, porquinhos, ouriços etc etc.) também!
