StreetLife "Be Wise... Sterilise!" 2024 Campaign..... UPDATE!

We're thrilled to advise that the next phase of our "Be Wise.... Sterilise!" campaign has been a great success - we'd like thank our Partner Vets, our Partner Shelters and of course, our StreetLife friends and supporters... the image below provides figures:

In expanding our sterilisation programme across the Eastern Algarve (please click here for a map), StreetLife invited private shelters in the area to become a Partner Shelter and work with StreetLife on our Be Wise.... Sterilise! campaign.

When considering a mutually beneficial relationship, the value of a collaborative partnership is a win-win and we were thrilled that a few private shelters agreed to work with us. Our StreetLife Partner Shelters were encouraged to spread the word about our Sterilisation Programme to families on low incomes living in the areas surrounding their shelters, displaying and circulating our Be Wise.... Sterilise! posters.

StreetLife provided financial support 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 newborns 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 was one of the many reasons working together made sense... the attempt to 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.....

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 .....

StreetLife Coffee Morning....

We held our StreetLife Coffee morning on Saturday, 29 June and it was a great event with roughly 50 guests.... we get together twice a year (June and December) to thank our supporters......  all StreetBuddies are invited as part of their "membership" - also included are our StreetEyes, Partner Shelters and several supporters.  Graeme, our StreetLife President, personally pays for all the coffees. The cakes are made and donated by our supporters and our StreetLife Team.  Our sincere thanks to Dizzie, Janet, Jean, Maggie & Sue for organising the morning on behalf of StreetLife and to Denis for hosting our event at Restaurante Churrasqueira de Marim.  Most of all....a huge thank you to our supporters for everything you do. We are a fantastic team working together!

The morning was not a fund raiser, but we still managed to receive donations of €276 for plants and surplus cakes... not forgetting signing up one new StreetBuddy, Patti.  Our Coin Monster announced that we raised €316.39 from coins donated via money boxes and jars handed over during the morning.  Huge thanks must to Freddie €111.78, Liz €41.24, Brenda €80.34, Lisa €22.68, Susan €15,71, Deborah €30.15 and Lucy €14.49. Click here for a photo.


Our StreetBuddies are provided with money boxes for them to collect any spare change. Once their money box is full, it is their choice if they would like to donate the coins to StreetLife; there is no obligation as this is THEIR money box and THEIR money. What do you think they do?


We also have StreetSavers; they are supporters who do not want to commit to being a StreetBuddy but save their spare coins - all they need is a jar! Do you have a jar?

StreetLife Celebrates 1,100 Sterilisations!.....

We are thrilled announce that another 100 Sterilisations goal has been reached.  

With the sterilisation of FANNY, we're expecting 2024 to be a bumper year for StreetLife.

Of course, without the help of our wonderful team, our wonderful supporters and our wonderful StreetEyes and StreetBuddies, we would not be able to achieve these milestones!
