Not sure whether it is your area but worth checking out. We live near Lisbon and always travel the 1 1/2 hr journey to leave our dog with them as it is worth it as we know they will be well cared for. They are very reasonable and are probably one of the cheapest we know of especially given they are so good.
Let us know if you want the telephone number and we will dig it out for you and also the website address.
Good Luck Janet and Adey
Excellent thanks for the info, would love to receive their number, email etc. We have also been contacted by a couple who live in Torres Vedras who love pets but basically look after them as a substitute for not having their own. They would love to have pets but again it restricts them, so when they can they go to peoples places and house sit/pet sit as well as taking in the different villages. They are what you can afford people, meeting them next week so will let you know the outcome, on the telephone they seem very nice. They are retired so have the time for the pet. anyway would like the info just in case this falls through. thanks again and will keep in touch.
