Kdog Brazil Project

The Kdog Brazil project promotes scientific research and training for early detection of breast cancer, through the sense of smell of dogs properly trained for this purpose. In a test using this method, performed without contact between the animal and the patient, conducted on 130 volunteer patients and two Belgian shepherd dogs, the success rate was 100%. 

The initiative was created by the French Institut Curie and brought to Brazil by Leandro Lopes, responsible for the Civil Guard kennel in Petrópolis; by Carla Ismael, oncologist, member of the CTO (Oncological Treatment Center) in Petrópolis and president of SFBO; by Christian Domenge, oncologist, vice-president of SFBO and by Roberta Lopes, current administrative coordinator of Kdog in the country. Two Brazilian dogs are currently in the learning phase. The expectation is that the project will soon be implemented at the SUS (Unified Health System) centers of Petrópolis, where the tests will be initiate on volunteers.

Mata Ciliar

Associação Mata Ciliar (AMC) was born in 1987 from the concern to preserve the water courses in the countryside of the state of São Paulo - a natural resource, which already suffered from the lack of planning of the public authority and society´s awareness at that time. For recovery of the degraded waters and the riparian forests, a program was developed for production and plantation of native seedlings in rural communities considered the “true water producers” by NGO. In 1997, the work with the fauna started through the Wild Animal Rehabilitation Center (CRAS) and the Center for Preservation of Neotropical Felines (Feline Center). In all these programs, Environmental Education is always included as the main tool for change for a sustainable social-environmental future.

Amalo was founded in 2013 by Priscilla Finamore as a dog hotel. However, as the vacancies were occupied sporadically, the founder decided to use the space to shelter dogs that needed shelter or care. In two years of work with needy animals, NGO was made official and today, it shelters about 150 animals, 80% in adult age and difficult to donate. In addition to the attendance, actions are promoted on awareness about responsible adoption and valuation of the animal life. For this purpose, Priscilla counts on help from the private initiative by means of donation of money and consumables.
