The União Zoófila was founded on 17 November 1951 with the mission to protect, treat and care for domestic animals at risk. We are a non-profit organisation and we do not receive any financial support from the state or any other public body. The UZ relies on the subscription fees paid by our members, and donations from animal lovers.
We house hundreds of dogs and cats, providing all their food, daily treatment, and veterinary care. We work 24/7 so that all of them live in the best conditions possible. To do this, your help is vital.
