The voice of the abandoned dogs of Pico Island

Our Mission

Our mission is helping the abandoned dogs of Pico and neighbouring islands become good pets and life companions, so that they can be adopted by forever loving families. Encouraging the social integration of dogs with families and communities through sharing relevant experiences and opening our rescue centre to the public will also be an essential aspect of our mission.

Project 2: Building a Rescue Centre

Pico Dogs Rescue Centre will be a temporary home for dogs that have been selected as suitable for adoption, a place where we will provide them with all their basic needs, but also with the extra training needed to prepare them for their new life ahead.
