Sad Tails


Sad Tails

The shelter is given no official funding to cover any of the costs of surgery, aftercare or food, but relies purely on donations and monthly “godparent” donations to help support the wonderful work and dedication of Ana and her helpers. You can become a “godparent” of a cat or a dog for as little as £2.50 per month. Please be kind enough to find out how you can help by looking at any of the following.

Some senior animals

Here is a selection of some of the older animals, who have perhaps been at the shelter for a number of years. They are still hopeful of finding their forever homes for perhaps the last few years they have left. It would be wonderful if they could be sponsored, as all monies go towards looking after them & paying for their food.


America

Special animals that require extra care and attention

Hali

Hali was operated on to amputate his back paw. Everything went perfect and he is recovering so well. Lucky cat! When he is 100% recovered we hope to find him a new home.

Grace

Grace is graceful, beautiful, sweet. Left abandoned at our gate. She has leishmaniasis and her ears are in poor condition. She also has weak back legs, a sign of having been tied up. A long suffering dog with a gentle look that melts our hearts, she deserves a loving home.

Moon

Moon is a gentle but shy cat who came to the shelter in 2020 at 3 months old from Sesimbra harbour. He would do well in a quiet home.
