We have set a goal, a dream, that we strive to reach. Currently we cooperate with private fosters who require an amount of €50-€100 monthly per dog. Not only the foster fees pile up, but currently the fosters are at maximum capacity.

It is time to finally follow our dream: building our very own SAM-shelter, not prison cells, but a place where street animals will be sure to have a full belly, a soft place to sleep and feel loved and safe. A place where they can be happy and a place where they can be given the care that they deserve, to ensure a brighter future. With our very own shelter we will be able to save and deposit the costs needed to rescue a stray dog or cat at an absolute minimum, and help many more animals.

We want them to go from the streets, directly to a place where they can feel as close to feeling Home.

To conclude, we are searching for a flat area of at least 2000m², preferably with a water source nearby and electricity insurance, as well as a decently constructed road which enables an easy access to the shelter to volunteers.
At the shelter we are planning to create:

  • a warm, soft bed for every animal
  • multiple playgrounds for the dogs to be able to enjoy themselves freely and play
  • a quarantine zone
  • a maternity place for mom and her puppies
  • a small vet clinic with a pharmacy and the basic essentials
  • a grooming place
  • and last, but certainly not least, a cattery.

With €50.000 we aim to purchase the land and begin working firstly on the basic building.

We highly appreciate your consideration and time and we hope for your support in the implementation of our dream.
