We are a Scottish charity helping the Bianca Associação, a Portugal based animal rescue shelter, caring for over 300 dogs and many cats.


For a small monthly sum you can become a God Parent to one of the animals who may never find a permanent home.


Donate any amount you like through PayPal or gift items in need such as dog leads, food bowls and bedding.

Zola was abandoned on a busy road, with no regard for his safety, like so many poor unfortunate animals that end up in the Bianca shelter.
