CÃOVIVER SPACE: Rescues abandoned animals, gives a home, helps them physically and psychologically

iCrowdNewswire - Oct 24, 2015


CãoViver exists for four years and since then it rescued hundreds of street animals, hoping to find a home for all of them. Rescues abandoned animals, gives a home, helps them physically and psychologically to recover and make sure they are are adopted by someone that really cares. It also has a social role in society, trying to send a message to children, adults and seniors of what´s going on in animal causes. The association’s work is completely voluntary, participating in dozens of events and campaigns each year in order to be able to maintain the support of the association. Unfortunately the place that the association called “home” was a target of a complaint because is not capable of being legalized and the association was forced to leave the place, subjecting their animals to another change. The place where the animals are currently is a temporary place, so it is urgent to rise again a “home”: the CãoViver Shelter.

In order to keep up the work we have been doing since we started, we will need a lot of help because it is very expensive to build a shelter with everything that is mandatory.
