Hello everyone, did you know that the Vagafogo Sanctuary has a total area of 24.46 hectares?

In this area there are numerous wild animals that are easily sniffed by domestic animals, so by instinct these (pets) run out to meet you.

In such a situation, we from the Vagafogo family would not be able to provide an immediate rescue.  due to the extensive area.

Because of our affection for all animals, we take this protective measure.

Thank you for understanding.
