"Seeing how many people on Facebook were helping homeless animals inspired me to get involved. By the end of 2018, I took 9 puppies under my care. Eventually they got adopted and now live happily with their families in America and Canada. In 2022, we established a non-profit shelter called "33 Barbosa" for injured dogs, senior animals, puppies with socializing issues Currently, there are about 40 such dogs under my care, including 12 puppies.Eventually a team of volunteers has been formed, including a professional dog trainer, a veterinarian, and foster families helping to nurse weak dogs back to health. We provide medical treatment, vaccinations, testing, and obedience training before sending our furry friends to their new families."
