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)

PRENSENTATION : Hello, my name is Timmy. I’ve been told that if you show up here, you may have a chance to have your own house. I have seen many dogs go in and out of the shelter. Most of these dogs have probably been lucky enough to move on to new homes. To a real family, with their own bed and regular food. And pampering, as much as you want. I also wish for that, and I hope that, despite my illness, I too will be lucky in life one day and someone will take me home to continue treating my illness and really love me. Love me like no one has ever loved me before. I know that many people prefer to have a young and above all healthy dog, but there are also dogs like me who unfortunately are not so lucky. And who can avoid being infected with leishmaniasis at some point in their life? But once you deal with the disease and then fight it off with medication, life can still be really good for someone like me. I’ve had this stupid leishmaniasis since I was a puppy and I’m on allopurinol. Unfortunately, my organs suffer too. I live in my own fold with my brother Trixi, who, by the way, feels the same way. They found us as cubs and have lived our sad lives in the shelter ever since. Until now, none of us have had any interested families, but we are really two good guys. Each one by his side since together we only think about doing pranks frowned upon by humans. I am always happy when the shelter volunteers have time for me and take me for walks. I usually walk very well on the leash and hardly pull. I’m also not usually interested in racers or cars. However, if they’re people I can pick up some cuddles from, then I’m interested in them after all. I’m not afraid of people, but right now I’m still very obsessed with my brother. We have always been together and we are a well-established team. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? I have many things to learn and improve, but maybe we can work on them together with a good canine professional. If you still fall in love with me: it’s not for nothing that I only live with my brother in a pen… I don’t like other dogs at all . We feel very strong together. The shelter people think it’s better to place me and my brother separately. So maybe I can learn to bond with my humans and also become a little more social and friendly with other dogs. I can’t promise you that I’ll ever call a dog other than my brother a friend, but I’d like to give it a try at least once. Without my brother I no longer have to show how strong I am. So, this is my story and my life so far. There really is room for improvement here, isn’t there? Do you want to give me a chance? If you think it could be your dog and you can give me some advice on how I can do some things better then get in touch with apap so that I too have a chance at a dog friendly life. Living in a shelter was never my goal.
