About Us

Our mission is to fight against pet abandonment in Portugal.

Our Story

The Amigo Fiel 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. A temporary shelter was built where abandoned animals are now fed, cared for and cherished until they find their forever family.

Amigo Fiel is almost always at full capacity. We work hard to rescue dogs in difficulty and give a loving home to animals that have been abused or abandoned. All animals are sterilized so that the homeless pet population will diminish.

 

We provide veterinary care for the animals, look after their daily needs, socialize the dogs and prepare them for adoption. We also organize fundraising events to cover costs. We strive to constantly improve the conditions of the shelter and carefully monitor the adoptions of our four-legged friends.

We raise awareness about cases of animals in danger and work with educational institutions to teach people about animal welfare.

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 ❤️

A wonderful place that really cares for all the abandoned and poorly dogs. Would well recommend a visit to help or even find your very own forever furry friend to take home and share many years if love

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
