URGENT! Our shelter is in crisis. The increase in dogs and cats has skyrocketed expenses. Public aid only covers 11% of the annual costs, and private donations are not enough. Our facilities are collapsing, and the animals are stressed. We owe over 10,000 euros to veterinarians, and the bills keep increasing. In May alone, we received 37 dogs. PLEASE, HELP US (donate, become a member, volunteer, or foster)

BILL 13 year(s) & 2 month(s) old

Bill is one of those dogs that we can’t understand why he hasn’t been adopted yet. Besides being incredibly handsome, he’s literally a sweetheart: He’s super affectionate with all people and children, as you can see in the photos. He loves human attention and cuddles: He constantly approaches you to keep getting petted!

Bill has become a symbol of the shelter because he’s spent half of his life here, and we all love him dearly. He’s undoubtedly one of those dogs we will cry our hearts out for when he leaves. He’s usually in the entrance area because he’s so friendly, welcoming anyone who comes in. Bill is a calm, serene, loving, and good-natured dog. What more could you ask for?

We believe that sweet Bill hasn’t been adopted because he’s not small in size, young, or a purebred. However, he’s an angel. Poor Bill is already twelve and a half years old, and we would love for him to spend his remaining years in a home where he can receive the love and cuddles he adores. And yes, even though he’s older, he’s in perfect health!

The only thing we’ve noticed within the shelter is that he can be dominant with male dogs. However, when we’ve taken him for walks outside with other males, he’s behaved wonderfully, as you can see in our videos. It’s important to understand that dogs inside and outside the shelter are different: inside, they feel the need to defend their limited space and resources, while outside, they are much calmer. Based on what we’ve observed, we believe that Bill could get along well with males outside. As for females, we can guarantee that he’s a true gentleman and has leadership qualities. He currently lives with Kali, and they get along wonderfully.

Ideally, we would like to find a home for Bill with a garden or a yard or at least very close to green areas, where he can be taken out often since he enjoys being outdoors. He’s not a dog that needs constant activity, but due to his age, he enjoys both leisurely walks in the countryside and lounging in the sun outside. We assure you that if you adopt Bill, you’ll have one of those dogs that touches your heart forever. If you’re willing to give him a chance, please get in touch with us.

Adoption costs for dogs  : ADULT 180€ / PUPPY 120€ All animals available for adoption have a microchip and passport. They have been tested for common diseases (Leishmania for dogs, FeLV and FIV for cats). Adult animals are fully vaccinated and castrated.

* Until complete adaptation, adult supervision with small children is essential.

** This means we have tested the dog with cats in the shelter and has shown no reactive behaviour, but this does not guarantee 100% compatibility with cats. Therefore, we always advise that cats and dogs are together only under surveillance.
