MUNICIPAL SHELTER PLOVDIV
The Bulgarian shelters are terrible places for the animals. The community does not work with the volunteer organisation and does not care much for the animals on the streets, which is visible for every human that care and sees them – the homeless animals. The volunteers from Animal Welfare Bulgaria are much involved with the dogs in the Municipal shelter in our town Plovdiv. We started a program called “Walk and cuddle with us” that was very successful. Since two years every Saturday there are volunteers going to the municipal shelter and walking and cuddling the dogs inside it. In the years the community of Plovdiv saw that we are there to help and also was and is helpful. We made an agreement to test and cure the dogs inside the shelter together, to find a better home for the dogs and to advertise the work of the shelter – to catch, castrate and turn back to the same place. Sometimes the dogs cannot be turn back to the same place, because they are very ill, or very big, or very scary. In this cases they stay in the shelter which is built for 85 dogs. We had a very big project together called “Project LIFE” that was about making blood tests – 4D Idexx SNAP test to the dogs and after that to make the proper treatment. We have tested and cured more then 40 animal, and we continue to do it when we have the possibility of course, because they need very expensive medicines to cure the Heartworms and Ehrlichiosis, Anaplasmosis. We have a facebook group called “Dogs from the Municipal Shelter in Plovdiv” and there the people are organising their visits and there are many photos of the dogs that are looking for a new homes and help. We are always in need of financial support, because most of the dogs are sick, so if you would like to DONATE please do not hesitate to do it. If you would like to adopt a dog from the shelter please CONTACT US immediately for further information! Thanks in advance!
