Check your canil first
Once an animal is in good health and has been sterilized, chipped, and vaccinated, it’s ready for adoption. But with so many unwanted and abandoned animals in the Algarve, competition for suitable new owners is tough.
We always encourage people looking to adopt an animal to first check out the local municipal canil (council pound), where the animals may not be kept in the best conditions and could be living in cramped conditions. To rescue from a canil is to truly rescue an animal.
