Tax Relief on Donations
Although the Animal Rescue Charity is set up in the Algarve in Portugal you can still claim tax relief on any cash donations made if you are resident in any of the European Member States. Passed in the European Court of Justice in January 2009, they upheld a claim that tax-payers should be able to deduct gifts to charities established in other member states. Please see case number C-318/07 and Judgment ECLI:EU:C:2009:33, stating that according to EU law you entitled to a tax deduction for any donations made to charitable organization inside the EU.

Let’s Save Life for all animals
Please take a few minutes of your time to find out about our Animal Charity in the Algarve. If you can help us in any way please let us know. We rely on donations and volunteers to keep our Animal Shelters going. If you feel you are in a position to adopt one of our rescue animals please visit the Animal Adoption page.
The Animal sanctuaries and Shelters cannot care for all the existing abandoned animals, but the ones who are taken in, are nursed back to health and will always have a home here if they are too old for adoption or need specific support. These animals are supported by the Animal Charity and our generous sponsors.
All our animals are sterilized, except young puppies, vaccinated and have been tested for diseases such as Leish, heart worm and tick fever. They all will receive a full vet checkup before they join you. All this is done at the adoption shelters expense so you can be guaranteed to have a healthy new friend.
