Bianca Shelter

Friends of Bianca offer substantial support to the Bianca shelter in Portugal. Every month, our colleagues in Portugal welcome dogs and cats in need of support, medical emergencies and vulnerable strays.

The number of dogs/cats brought in to the shelter each month can reach over 50, many of them are puppies or kittens. These animals really need your donations so we can pay for vaccinations, food and medical care, neutering, enclosures, mother and puppy shelters and much more.

Friends of Bianca is run by volunteers, so all of the funds we raise go directly to help the animals in need at Bianca.

Writing a Will is a topic that many of us shy away from but friends of Bianca are asking you to take just a moment and consider how important it is to make a Will.

First and foremost, it gives you the opportunity to ensure that your savings and possessions go to the people you care about most. With that job done you can relax knowing that your wishes will be carried out.

If you think that leaving us a gift in your Will is something you would like to do, we advise you to get in touch with a solicitor:

Gifting Food

With around 600 animals in their care every year, the Bianca Associação is always in need of items to help look after the cats and dogs.

Bianca needs practical items like dog leads and collars, and would appreciate any donations of unwanted items.

The shelter is also in need of certain medicines for the cats and dogs. If you are able to donate medicines to Bianca, please get in touch with us.

Please see the links below for food you can order for the shelter.


How your donation can help

  • £5 can allow us to buy food and help pay for veterinary help.
  • A donation of £10 can pay for a puppy or kitten’s vaccine course.
  • £15 will pay for a vaccine course for an adult dog or cat.
  • £20 could pay for a bag of cat or dog food.
  • £25 can pay for neutering, helping to eliminate the issue of stray animals.
  • £175 could cover half the costs for a new enclosure.
  • £350 is the cost of an additional enclosure for the shelter, we currently don’t have enough space for all of the dogs, meaning some have to stay in kennels but there are plans to build more.
