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.
