Donations help to reduce unwanted litters of puppies and strays!
Our Be Wise.... Sterilise! campaign has produced amazing results! By the end of 2022, we had sterilised 785 dogs! By 4 February this year, we had organised another 115 sterilisations to reach 800 and on 25 June, we announced the sterilisation of a further 100 dogs, reaching our 900 target. This is a major achievement........ our sincerest gratitude goes to our fans, friends and supporters and last but not least, the StreetLife team - thank you for helping to make this such a proud moment for StreetLife!
Our campaign is a first for StreetLife.... local authorities joining us in promoting and co-ordinating efforts to address a community challenge. This campaign serves to provide assistance for low-income families who perhaps don't have access to social media. Sterilisation application forms are available from the Junta and assistance with completion is also available, if necessary. Click on the links to access posters about Low Cost Sterilisation (English) and (Portuguese). Please feel free to distribute, wherever possible, our printer-friendly handout about this initiative.
As we see this campaign succeed, we hope to reach out to other Freguesias in order to persuade them to promote our initiative..... our goal is to see our Be Wise.... Sterilise! campaign launched throughout Portugal - let's end the suffering and make a difference!

StreetLife needs volunteers.... please lend a hand.....
With the increased need for the StreetLife's sterilisation services, our teams are in need of some assistance. We're wondering if any of our friends and/or supporters would be able to spare a few hours each week or a few €s each month.......
With a commitment of just €5
per month, our efforts to
sterilise stray and/or abused
animals can continue. Read more.....
Never underestimate the power of a coin...... StreetLife would be thrilled to take your coins. Read more....
This is an area where we really need just a few hours each week. For those able to communicate in Portuguese, we would be so grateful for your contribution. Our StreetEye volunteers assist with the identification of pet owners in the community who would benefit from StreetLife's assistance. We are so keen to continue our work to allevia suffering and cruelty in our region. Read more on this site ..... Click here for the poster.

StreetLife's Wine Tasting and Dinner.....
A MASSIVE thank you for making our Wine Tasting Dinner at Octant Vila Monte such a success. An incredible €2392.00 was raised for our local EA Animal Sterilisation Programme, StreetLife.
Everyone appeared to be very buzzy and happy with the evening…. and I know from many comments that the Fiuza Wine got the thumbs up. It was an incredible evening from start to finish; even the weather was kind to us so the Welcome glass of fizz was served outside on the terrace.
To all of the 101 guests who attended the event... you have all helped to make a difference..... Thank you! Please click here to see the photos and to read more about our sponsors and helpers. Send us an email if you'd like to have copies of any of the photos.

Our sincere thanks to Prime Wine.....
At StreetLife, we've always thought that our supporters were fabulous, but although we suspected, it's confirmed that you're all wine lovers too! The 400+ bottles of Terres Nobles Rosé wine donated by PRIME WINE has resulted in StreetLife raising just under €900.00 for our Animal Sterilisation Programme.
On behalf of StreetLife, thank you all so much for your support and a massive thanks to Bill Godley at PRIME WINE.... www.prime-wine.pt. Bill has asked us to mention the PRIME WINE database.... all the specials offers are listed there and apparently, there's one coming up in November. Your information will NOT be shared unless you give us permission to send Bill your email address. Please let me know if you're happy for us to pass on your details.

Strays in Portugal.....
In the latest Portugal Resident, there's an article on the number of stray animals in Portugal.... it probably won't come as a surprise to you all that the number has increased significantly..... towards the end of 2022, the number of stray animals were estimated at 50,000! Click here to read the article.
"Animal Ombudsman, Laurentina Pedroso has warned there are around 80,000 animals held in collection centres up and down the country, a situation that also worries municipalities, writes Lusa, some of which don’t know what to do with the animals.
And this is the part the committee did not address: the dozens of private shelters, which are also full to bursting – and spending thousands of euros every year on animal feed and veterinary bills."
The only solution to this problem is sterilisation..... StreetLife has been working tirelessly to sterilise as many pets and stray dogs as possible and we'll continue to do so, without any other assistance above what is provided by our wonderful supporters..... as always, our deepest gratititude goes to you....... together, we can make a difference!
