StreetLife needs StreetBuddies

StreetLife is a non-profit organisation set up in September 2017 to support local pet owners in the East Algarve with insufficient funds to sterilise their dogs. StreetLife wants to reduce the number of stray and abandoned dogs in the East Algarve through a programme of sterilisations.

During the last 16 months, they have sterlised over 160 local dogs.

StreetLife relies solely on donations and proceeds from fundraising initiatives, without which they cannot continue their work in the East Algarve.

In January, StreetLife launched their StreetBuddy Scheme. It’s a way of raising additional funds for their work whilst also spreading the word to a wider audience.

What is a StreetBuddy? It is someone who wants to support the work of StreetLife via a small regular donation. In return, you receive a ‘welcome pack’ consisting of: a StreetBuddy Money Box and a personalised StreetBuddy card. You will also be invited to a StreetBuddy coffee morning twice per year plus you will receive StreetBuddy newsletters. In addition, you are entered into a monthly draw for a small “thank you” gift in appreciation for your support.

StreetLife has been sterilising up to 20 dogs per month. The number of daily contacts asking for their help is increasing.

With their current level of income, they cannot continue sterilising at the same level as they are currently achieving.

If you would like to support this cause by becoming a StreetBuddy, contact StreetLife via email at or via their Facebook Page (StreetLife Animal Sterilisation Programme).
