Much has been achieved in recent months despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through our local animal welfarists, additional water tanks were built in cooperation with the Shelter management. Therefore water pipes had to be installed on the entire 7.5 hectare area. In total 7 new water tanks were installed.
In addition, many new kennels were built, so that per kennel fewer dogs can be accommodated and thus the living together of the dogs becomes easier.
Every week we spend about 6.000 $ for food in Bucov, so that every dog has enough food. On top of that there are additional bills for high quality puppy food.
All of this is financed by donations - also through the donation channels here at GlobalGiving.
We thank each and every donor from the bottom of our hearts
Especially in the Shelter Bucov, where about 3,000 to 3,500 dogs live, the food bills are immense. Each month we have to buy food (approx. 30,000 kg) worth about $25,000. Twice a week the food company brings food to Bucov.
Additionally about 50 new kennels were built in the last half year. All new kennels and also some of the older ones were layed out with tiles. The reason therefor is that with the tiles the kennels can be cleaned more easily.
Since the volunteers could not travel to Bucov in spring because of the COVID19 pandemic, the roofs were also built by the local workers.
All this must continue every month and that is why we need you!
Please continue to support us in this important project
Beside the normal tasks (caring on the dogs by buying enough food and financing the medical care of the dogs) in the last months the building of new kennels was the main task of the animal protectors in Bucov Mihaela and Aniela. New kennels are needed because the number of dogs increases enormous. On the other side the main aim of Aniela and Mihaela by building new kennels is to improve the situation for the dogs in the shelter. With more kennels it is possible to take care on less dogs in one kennel and so stress for the dogs can be reduced.
Also 50 new doghouses were bought especially for the new builded kennels.
In this public shelter we are active sind 7 years. In this time our help increased.
We provide the food for 3,000 dogs! Every day we need approx. 1.000 kg food!
The vetenary care for all these dogs including vaccinations, surgeries and deworming etc. is paid by us. Also in special cases when dogs has to be brought to vet cabinets these expenses are paid by us. and in summer we need special medicine against mites. Without this special pills the dogs who were biten by mites lost their fur and it itches very strongly.
With volunteer groups we visit Bucov and during these work deployments a lot of roofs were build to give the dogs protection of sun, rain and in winter snow. Also the men and women are building new kennels.
We have dog kennels made by a local carpenter so that the dogs have protection.
We also provide the kennels with water baskets and food bowls.
