WAYS YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
Your generosity will mean that our shelters can go on caring for our animals in need and find them loving new homes. This means we can buy their food, bowls, toys. Keep our dogs an other animals warm, safe an well.
Here are some examples of our costs:
We pay about 12000 rubles (circa 160 EURO) for each stray dog to be caught, sterilised, assessed medically and tested socially. This sum of money enables us to prepare our dogs for rehoming. It gives them a chance to become a loved family member one day in future.
We pay about 9000 Rubles (120 EURO) for each stray cat to be caught and similarly assessed. This also gives them a chance to be adopted in future.
Any amount donated by you today will get our animals closer to being a loving and loved family member some day in future.
Also our shelters are always in need of the following supplies that you can buy direct from the pet stores:
Pet food and treats
Dog leads and collars, grooming items
Flea and worming treatment
Blankets, bedding, towels etc
Dog and cat beds
Latex gloves - all sizes
Heavy duty aprons
Cat litter trays
Dog and cat shampoos
Various cleaning items for the shelter – brushes, buckets , bin bags for heavy duty, NON bleach cleaning detergents
Washing liquids and liquid soap

Welcome a furry friend into your life by sponsoring one of our dogs. Please see full list of our lovely dogs in the catalogue.
Monthly cost of keeping a dog at one of our shelters is around 5000 Rub (65 EURO) to 8000 Rub (100 EURO) per month.
We appreciate that not everyone are able to pay that much sponsorship per month however you can commit to any regular amounts per month for however long you want and choose one of our dogs to be sponsored.
Although you may never be able to meet your sponsored dog in person we promise that we will make your virtual experience of sponsoring a dog as fulfilling as possible. Once you have chosen the dog you would like to sponsor we will keep you informed regularly about your sponsored friend by sending you videos, photos, quick updates etc.
Main thing as well, we will let them know they are already part of someone else's life. They are already loved and cared for and that there is someone special thinking of them.
