The Algarve Dog Show is not just for people showing their dogs but also for those of you who are considering getting a new addition to the family. The Algarve Dog Show offers the chance for you to visit lots of dog charities in one place. You will be able to see the dogs and talk with the various charities about their fantastic work in caring and rehoming numerous animals a week. Also if you do not want to take on the full time care of a pet but can offer some time with short term fostering or you can sponsor a pet or just offer to help walk the animals at the shelters. If you can’t have a dog but want to help out then the charities need volunteers to walk the dogs around the show and enter them into classes, so come along and be part of the fun. Each day there will be 3 Adopt-a-dog parades which will give you some chance to see the doggies up for adoption.

A big thank you to all of our sponsors who help us to put on the show and provide prizes.
