Bianca welcomes individuals or groups of people who would like to volunteer their time to help with the day to day requirements of providing the best possible life for the animals whose current home is the shelter. There are over 300 dogs who need love, care and daily walking. The walking routes are set in a beautiful pine forest with fresh, clean air.

You can volunteer to help for just a day, or a longer period of time depending on what suits you best.

There is wonderful accommodation at the Casa Da Maria with en-suite rooms. This is a four bedroom villa shared with the resident owner and is self-catering, with guest shared dinning/lounge and modern conveniences. here are the prices for the villa:

  • Special price up to 4 or more weeks: €20 – per night one person / €33 – per night two people.
  • Up to 4 or more nights: €25 – per night one person / €40 – per night two people.
  • From 1 to 3 nights: €30 – per night one person / €45 – per night two people.

The villa is only a 20 minute walk to the shelter. It is also  15 minutes by bus from the beach at Sesimbra and 45 minutes from the wonderful city of Lisbon.

As a charity, the money we raise all go to the animals at the shelter therefore we are unable to assist with your travelling cost or the cost of your accommodation and food. Our holiday and help sheet will explain more, get in touch for a copy.

Why not devote some of your holiday time in Portugal to this wonderful organization or just come for that reason alone? You and the dogs will be equally blessed!
