When abandoned dogs arrive at the shelter they are vaccinated, neutered and registered. Shelter has about 200 animals. Shelter has 73 boxes (size of 18-100 square meters ) and it is located on area of 47 inches and has two small outbuildings. Unfortunately, the shelter has limited capacity and we are unable to take more new animals in the number of which would be required. The concept of the shelter is based on the idea that dogs found new homes in new families but unfortunately most of the dogs stay all their life in the shelter. Shelter has a no-kill policy. Our survival depends solely on donations and volunteer help.
Annual cost of the shelter is about 35 000 eur. Due to the inability to secure funding, dog food is mostly cooked (bread mixed with meat).
