Dog walk in Faro this Sunday

A walk to increase the awareness of abandoned animals in the Algarve while promoting the responsible adoption of animals will be taking place on Sunday (August 14).

The walk, entitled 2 pernas por 4 patas (2 legs for 4 paws) will be starting at 10am from the Teatro Municipal in Faro and is open to everyone to take part in, including their pets.

The event has been organised by Nowashow and AnimalLife, a social network set up in 2010 for pet owners and animal lovers and already has 5,000 followers.

A spokesman for AnimalLife said: “Every year thousands of animals die in Portugal, victims of abuse and neglect, particularly in the summer months. This is a reality we want to change.”

Participation in the event cost €2 per person and walkers are advised to take hats, comfortable clothing, shoes and water for themselves and their pets.
