This is what someone is saying about this woman and her organization:

:“Dear Madam/Sir, I’m writing you from Portugal, about an animal rights ONG that works in this country and has a partnership with you. I’m writing you in the name of many other persons that also feel frauded and disappointed in the name of animal rights. I’ve the duty of warning you about this association, called ANIMAL, that is a fraude and fooling all the persons that really care about animals and animal rights, as myself. For a long time this ONG was the best in Portugal, and I’ve helped financially for many years their good work. Unfortunally, for almost 3 years now, and especially when the former president quit and, without any elections, another person became president of ANIMAL, everything changed, and the persons that care for animals are now feeling not only very disapointed, but also robbed and fooled. I was warned by other persons that were working for this ONG (and that obvioulsy left this ONG), that all the money that was given was used for personal spends, like clothing, trips and concerts, and nothing was left for the animals or campaings for animal rights. Pet stores used to give food to this ONG, to support abandoned animals, but the president of ANIMAL, Rita Silva, for all this years, gave all the food for her pets (that she has illegally, without medical care and vaccination). One investor that supported this ONG gave them a farm so that they could build and create the first portuguese sanctuary, but the president is using that house and farm to live, without any concerns for animals. Nobody goes to the campaings or demonstrations they organize (that are very rare), because they are incompent, badly organised, without any sense at all, and they are incredible impolite with all the persons that ask for informations or doubts. To finish, the president Rita Silva, that doesn’t have the minimum of education (she doesn’t even finish the 9 years of obligatory education in Portugal), gives workshops of animal laws. Of course that all the information is roughly given, with lots of imprecisions and mistakes, where, again, persons that are interested in knowing more about how to save animals, have to pay to much, without any benefits for the animals. I know this ONG works or is in contact with yours, so i feel that is my duty to inform you with whom you are working with. This ONG is the shame of Portugal’s world of animal rights. Thank you for your time ”.

I am portuguese living in Algarve, and I am shochink with the lies this mad woman is saying. Atacking my country and my region it is something so low. This woman is a fanatic that receve a lot of woman to atack the portugueses and our traditions like TOURADA (rongly called bullfight). I am very sad with this type of sick people, always saying lies. If belive in that woman you are being too ingenues and naives.
