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)

We introduce you to one of the great treasures we have in our animal shelter, who unfortunately is suffering a lot and is in an emergency situation. Nala is an incredibly sweet and affectionate dog who longs for human interaction. Anyone who looks deeply into her eyes will realize what a dog’s love and affection mean. She adores human contact. In fact, if you’re with her and not paying attention, she’ll seek you out to be touched, gently touching your legs with her paw or nuzzling you with her head!

Nala’s issue is that she has epilepsy, although it’s well controlled. From what we’ve observed and based on her behavior, she has a maximum of one epileptic seizure per month, or sometimes none at all. Furthermore, she was recently spayed, which should also reduce the number of epileptic episodes. The sad part about having this condition is that it obliges us to keep her isolated from the other dogs. It’s not that she misbehaves with them, but we must avoid exposing her to any stress-inducing factors, as stress can trigger new epileptic episodes. Sometimes we see her attempting to make contact with other dogs through the fence, and it breaks our hearts. Nala is in an emergency situation because the shelter is not the right environment for her at all: it’s very noisy and stressful for her, and loneliness affects her greatly. Additionally, she needs to take her medication strictly every day.

For all these reasons, we would love for someone to take notice of her and be willing to devote themselves to giving her a good life. Nala needs a peaceful environment and balanced, calm individuals who can provide her with security, protection, and lots of love. Ideally, we would like the family that adopts her to live in the countryside or have nature close by and to have experience with dogs with epilepsy or be well-informed about the care she requires. Likewise, it would be best if Nala were the only dog in the family, as she requires a lot of care and attention.

It’s time for Nala’s sad and isolated existence to change, and for her to find an environment where she is loved and cared for as she deserves, free from the stress of the shelter. If you are that special person who could change Nala’s future, 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.
