This man is still seen in Funchal, with a pushchair converted to carry a cage with cats in it and the dogs, do have collars and leads.
The man can be seen begging for money round Funchal center, some people find this disturbing, and not fair for the animals, others look at it as this is a person who is a true animal lover and takes care of them.
