About Us

Our mission is to fight against pet abandonment in Portugal.

Our Story

Amigo Fiel is a dog shelter located in Bombarral, Portugal on the Silver Coast, just 18 km from Caldas da Rainha. The association was created in April 2001 by a group of animal lovers. They were distressed seeing sick, hungry and tired animals wandering the streets of Bombarral. Our mission is to provide a loving and safe environment for stray and abandoned dogs, and to find them forever homes through adoption. We work tirelessly to ensure the well-being and happiness of all of our furry residents.

We take in dogs from a variety of situations, including those that have been abandoned, surrendered, or rescued from abusive homes. We believe that every dog deserves a second chance, and we work tirelessly to provide the care and attention that each dog needs to thrive.

 

At Amigo Fiel, we understand that finding the right dog for your family can be a daunting task. That's why we work closely with each adopter to ensure that they find the perfect match. We take the time to get to know each dog's personality and needs, so we can best match them with a loving family. In addition to rescuing and rehoming dogs, we socialize the dogs and help them learn basic commands and leash walking. This helps them to be more adoptable and ease their transition into a new home.

We raise awareness about cases of animals in danger and work with educational institutions to teach people about animal welfare. We are a non-profit organization and rely on donations and volunteer support to continue our mission. If you are interested in adopting a dog, volunteering, or making a donation, please get in touch. At Amigo Fiel, we believe that every dog deserves a loving home, and we are committed to making that happen for as many dogs as possible. Thank you for your support!

O meu Ghost veio da Amigo Fiel, associação da qual me tornei sócia porque aprecio muito o trabalho de todos na qual participam. Já tinha uma cadelinha adoptada, a Kira, e o Ghost veio acrescentar mais amor e carinho à nossa família ❤️

I have visited this dog shelter in Portugal several times to help exercise the dogs. There are an amazing team of volunteers cleaning kennels, exercising/feeding and caring for the dogs and well as sorting out adoptions to new homes. What would happen without caring people like these giving up their own time to care for these unloved animals? ....Brilliant work xx
