Friends of Bianca are an Aberdeen based non-profit charity who help support the Bianca shelter in Portugal who care for over 300 cats and dogs.
We are always looking for people to help at with fund raising and helping out at fetes. We also promote going out to the actual shelter in Sesimbra, Portugal where we can organize accommodation if required.
We are a good friendly team of people and welcome any new people onboard to help as and when required.
A great opportunity to help make a real difference in progressing animal welfare.

Organisation aims and objectives

Friends of Bianca is an Aberdeen based charity founded in 2011 and run by Trustees and volunteers to provide desperately needed support for a shelter for severely abused and neglected dogs and cats in Portugal. Bianca Associacao is a Portuguese charity, run solely by volunteers, which annually rescues, cares for and re-homes, all over Europe, 600 abandoned dogs and cats, many arriving in terrible condition. Portugal does not have national animal welfare organisations such as the RSPCA, PDSA, Dogs Trust, Cat Protection League etc and without charities like Bianca, many of these poor creatures would simply starve or suffer a painful death from treatable injuries or diseases. Because Bianca is run exclusively by unpaid volunteers, 100% of all monies donated goes directly to helping the animals.

Travel details: In Aberdeen and district.
