The lovely 10-month old Iris lived with her sister (Honey) and had owners with an alcohol problem who beat them - as a result, Iris is very nervous. The good news is that along with their mother, they were rescued by APAR. StreetEye Roseane who also works at APAR asked for our help and Iris was sterilised immediately. She’s being socialised now, but please contact APAR if you’re able to give her a home.
StreetLife cooperates with other animal welfare associations; working together makes us stronger! Here we have the first of two dogs referred by SOS Algarve Animals. Clara (Olhão) was referred to us because her 1-year old female, Luna, unfortunately became pregnant. We agreed to take over the case and now little Luna is able to play without fear of further problems. Watch this space for No 2!
Maria (Faro) helps dogs in gipsy camps and Streetlife has helped her before. She recently asked us for help with 1-year old Violeta who was pregnant and likely to produce several unwanted pups that would probably “disappear” into the surrounding area. Fortunately, Violeta’s owner was happy for us to intervene (not always the case) and Violeta was taken care of - well done Maria!
Piralha is a nervous stray taken in by Ana Maria in Moncarapacho and it has been difficult to socialise her. Without a microchip and no response to a search for the owner, Ana Maria made her part of the family. As Ana Maria has other dogs and lives in the countryside, there was always the risk of an unwanted pregnancy, so StreetEye Carla was contacted and after a visit, we decided to help.
