Donations help to reduce unwanted litters of puppies and strays!
StreetLife "Be Wise... Sterilise!" 2024 Campaign..... exciting news!
In expanding our sterilisation programme across the Eastern Algarve (please click here for a map), StreetLife has invited private shelters in the area to become one of our Partner Shelters, to work with StreetLife and our Be Wise.... Sterilise! campaign.
When considering a mutually beneficial relationship, the value of a collaborative partnership is a win-win and we're thrilled to list here, the shelters that have agreed to work with us.
Our StreetLife Partner Shelters are encouraged to spread the word about our Sterilisation Programme to families on low incomes living in the surrounding area to their shelters, displaying and circulating our Be Wise.... Sterilise! posters.
StreetLife will provide financial support, wherever possible, to our Partner Shelters with shelter related sterilisations, helping them with the strays and abandoned dogs they look after until they are hopefully rehomed. Our local shelters are overloaded with stray and abandoned dogs. The number of puppies they have rescued, many newborn that have been dumped in bins, is unbelievable. That’s why sterilisation is so important… but without shelters what would happen to these dogs? This is one of the many reasons working together makes sense. Let’s try and stop the problem of unwanted puppies.
The number of stray animals in Portugal has increased enormously over just the past two years, certainly exacerbated by the Covid epidemic! Many families found it almost impossible to feed themselves, let alone their pets so there have been numerous pets abandoned or surrendered. Prior to the havoc of Covid, local authority kennels were already overflowing with no solution in sight so it's easy to appreciate the sheer numerical enormity of the current problem. In March 2021, we put together some information on the subject “Stray Animals in Portugal” ....(click here to see the article) and in October 2023, we circulated an update published in the The Portugal Resident.
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.

Wow! What a donation.....
We'd like to thank Anja from "Wandern mit Herz de Algarve" and her dog walking team for another extremely generous donation - a whopping €2,000! The support we are enjoying from this group is amazing and we are so grateful..... words are not enough!
This contribution will go such a long way to support the next phase of our "Be Wise..... Sterilise!" Campaign,

Art for Dogs - February, Tina McEvoy.....
As Tina McEvoy continues to include StreetLife in her "Art for Dogs" programme in 2024, we believe this painting, inspired by light on a wintery, misty morning would grace any living room. Thank you Tina, for another lovely work of art!

Art for Dogs.... our thanks for a very generous donation!
Our sincere thanks must go to our friends, Kenneth and Deidre, who so love the work of our Art for Dogs artist, Tina McEvoy that their purchases of her artwork resulted in a donation of €690.00 to StreetLife.
We feel sure that they derive years of enjoyment from Tina's work and we hope that it'll be a reminder of their kindness and care in helping us to continue with our sterilisation programme.

Best Wishes to all StreetLife Supporters.....
It's been an eventful year and we'll be sending out our year end Newsletter in early January, but we wanted to take a moment to wish all our StreetLife supporters a very Happy Christmas.
As many of you are aware, we reached a major milestone recently – 1000 sterilisations!! This would not have been possible without your help and support.
The Algarve Daily News has posted an article about StreetLife on their website and also on their Facebook page. Please click here if you'd like to read the article.
