Endorsed by APAA.
For the people who do not have arrangements for their pets followingย their demise or incapacity.
If your dog or cat is part of your family, you should be sure that there is somebody trustworthy to take care of your animal! Leaving it in an overcrowded or on understaffed municipal canel should never be an option.
Alternatively, if you register and accept our Legacy Pet Plan, we will welcome yourย paw-friend into ARA, probably the best animal shelter in Portugal, where we’ve a large live-in ratio of staff & volunteers and a restricted number of animals.
We want to garantee the best life to all animals in our care, so our facilities include 14 park areas, with pools, apparatus and sand pits, and all dogs are walked twice a day. We invite you to look at some of the videos on our website, or better still, come and visit us. We also have excelent facilities for cats. Approximately 30% of our animals are monthy rehomed to carefully selected families.
The Legacy Pet Plan doesn’t have a standard cost but we appeal to your charity.
We would ask you to consider leaving us a legacy in your will or make a one-offย or even standing order donation. Although, this is not a requirement.
Our shelter relies entirely on donations to fund good quality and vital servicesย and facilities such as surgery, superior kennels/cattery, lifesaving medical treatment. All we wish is to give them the best animal welfare you could wish for.
