SPAD is an Animal Help Center situated in the lovely well known Madeira Island. For years, the high rates of abandoned pets have been of public concern in this vacation destination. We have put our efforts on educating the population so that the abandon rates lower by promoting several talks in schools, establishing protocols with local parishes - where we encourage vaccination and animal registration at low costs. Adoption campaigns have also been a big part of our program. Consequently, we promote them on a regular basis and hope to get new caring families for our animals.elp That said, despite our efforts we handle feeding, bathing, vaccinating and giving love to 407 animals - it is not with pride that we say: this is over our capacity! Both infra structurally and financially speaking. In fact, SPAD currently struggles to keep its doors open.
The aim of this fundraising, on a primary stage, is mainly for buying the supplies needed for caring for our animals and also expand/improve our shelter capacity. Unfortunately, there are still many abandoned animals on the streets, and they keep being delivered to the shelter.
