Miracles happen, even without we believe them <3
It happened on 11/11/2017. ZARA, a very old dog, was chosen by Alice, a sweet girl like an angel who came from Lumiar, Lisbon to adopt a senior dog and Zara was already in her heart <3 <3 <3
We could hardly believe it. A 10 year old girl wanted to give a happy ending to an animal <3 <3 <3
Zara had a hard life before coming to Bianca. She was found tied to a tree, pregnant and full of fear. Been at Bianca for many years. Today she lives happily in her new home. It can be for a month or a year (Alice said it did not matter) what matters is that she finally gets what she deserves, love and a home <3 <3 <3
After all, there are still human beings with hearts <3 <3 <3 Be happy sweet ZARA!

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.

All of the funds raised by friends of Bianca go straight to the Bianca shelter to help animals in need. There are lots of different ways you can help, here are a few:


donations of any kind are always gratefully received
