How Do We Help Dogs?

Portugal Paws and Claws (PPC) was formed as a not-for-profit association with the aim of raising funds and awareness to assist in the well being and re-homing of stray and abandoned dogs within the Central Portugal area generally, and Lousã council area particularly. Furthermore we are aiming to work in collaboration with other organisations both nationally and internationally to find suitable homes for the adoption of these dogs, in particular we are looking for homes within the UK,
PPC is dedicated to working with other associations to ensure that all dogs that come into contact with PPC are given the love, support and quality of life they deserve..

Without fostering, there can be no rescue. Every year we can save the lives of over 100 pets.


Every little bit counts! Your generous donation helps animals most in need.


You can help animals that we would otherwise not be able to facilitate.
