The Anjinhos da Rua Project, the largest private sanctuary in the world for the defense of abandoned animals, is located in the city of Peruíbe, South Coast of São Paulo and has an area of over 1 million square meters, dedicated to the care of animal victims of abandonment and/or mistreatment by human beings.
A non-profit organization started in 2006 and approved in 2008 by the statute, it has been financially maintained since then by the Machado family, the Anjinhos da Rua Project arises through an abandoned ex-dog, Quinho, who through his eyes, through a spiritual manifestation, he showed his owner and best friend, Henrique Machado, that a project should start, where animals like him would be rescued and would have the opportunity to experience great doses of love, affection, comfort and security, no longer running the risk of suffering from mistreatment, abandonment or any contempt on the part of man.
The Anjinhos da Rua Project has already saved thousands of animals, and currently shelters and cares for more than 1,500 of the most varied species, including dogs, cats, pigs, rabbits, horses, cows, oxen, chickens, goose, fish, buffalo , among others who live with dignity until the last days of life, being totally against the practice of euthanasia.
With 4 highly qualified veterinarians hired for the care of the animals, treatments are offered with the best quality medicines and equipment.
For philosophical reasons the sanctuary does not work with the donation of animals, from the moment he arrives, the sanctuary is his new definitive home.
The mission of the Anjinhos da Rua Project is to transmit love through simple gestures, spreading attention and affection to others, acting philanthropically for the protection, welfare and care of animal protection, as well as complaints of mistreatment, with the legal department when necessary. encouraging the population to embrace the animal cause, demonstrating that everyone, without distinction, deserves to live with dignity, with joy and the minimum conditions necessary for a good survival, which unfortunately has not been practiced by human beings.
With more than 30 million abandoned animals in Brazil, the Anjinhos da Rua Project stands out with the objective of continuing to maintain love, compassion and dignity in caring for animals with the best quality of life and well-being.
The Anjinhos da Rua Project exists to defend and protect the animal cause that, today, is on the rise anywhere in the world, but few do it with such passion, such dignity, veterinary assistance and quality of life.
