Kristina Richardson, IWP member is taking us on a visit to the Associação Sao Francisco de Assis, Zambujeiro, near Alcabideche;

At the moment, there are 190 cats and some 350 dogs all looking for adoption, love and care. The ethos is Protection and Well Being of Animals.
There are 41 staff members and some 15 volunteers who come once a week on a regular basis. They need many more!
Barbara Nabo is in charge and makes presentations at local Cascais schools, as part of their compulsory Curriculum, learning about
Social and Environmental Responsibily with the idea that adoption is better than purchase of  domestic pets. They are in desperate need of volunteers to walk the dogs and spend time with the cats, all for the love of animals.
Any day of the week Monday to Friday from 2:30pm to 4:30pm.
Please contact Kristina Richardson at: tinakrisrich@gmail.com for more information and to organize car pooling for the visit to the rescue center.
