Dog Portrait Winner

dog portrait winner FOB

Congratulations to Laura Muirhead who won the pet portrait competition to have her dog Thor’s portrait painted by renowned artist Lily Taylor. Thank you to everyone who entered.


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.
