Helping Cats is our passion

We are a cat charity association in the municipality of Lagoa, Algarve


What's it all about?

Carvoeiro Cat Charity’s main purpose is to rescue cats at risk and to find them loving homes. In addition we have an outreach program that looks after a number of colonies in and around Carvoeiro.


We offer a safe shelter for about 200 cats. They live in several cat houses due to their individual needs, in company with other cats or in their own compartment.

Colonies / Feeding

We also look after several free living cat colonies in and around Carvoeiro. We provide them with food and water, offer provision of healthcare when needed and sterilize the cats.

Adoption & Sponsorship

Support your favourite cat: Whether you offer him/her a lovely forever home by adoption or you support by donating a monthly amount to cover the expanses of food & medical costs.

“The time you spend with cats is never lost.”

Our Cats

Some cats have experienced bad things, they would prefer nothing more than to be given into loving hands – all these cats are currently available for adoption!

“An impressive meeting place for cats and humans.”

“More than just cats' support: Love & help”

"My first visit to the quinta was stunning – Corinna and the whole team of CCCA love what they do, and so the cats get more than food & shelter: Love for who they are and what they deserve. Thanks for your passion for the cats!"
