Big Heart award

Unsung heroes who dedicate their time and energy to help dogs and cats in the Algarve are to be acknowledged at the Algarve Dog Show to be held at the Fatacil on June 5 and 6 as part of the new Big Heart award.

Jan Cobley from Paws 4 Pets, organisers of the dog show, said: “We decided that as well as raising money for these people, we wanted to acknowledge what they actually do, so we came up with the Big Heart award.”

Nominations for the awards are being accepted until April 30 while voting will take place from May 1 until June 5 with the winner being announced at the Algarve Dog Show on June 6.
