In memoriam .... Nilva, Great Time !!

 Wednesday 25 November 2020

Unfortunately she was only able to enjoy her warm, loving home for a short time. But she was able to feel what real love is, ... she is greatly missed.

Fabienne's dog of the week: BRUCIE

Tuesday, November 24, 202 

Brucie was delivered to the gate by his owner. The same story as always, no time, no money, Brucie had to go.  He himself did not understand it, he came in with a wagging tail, but the joy quickly passed when he noticed that his owner never came back for him. Since then he has been waiting with us for a new home, a new chance, in short, a new life!

Brucie is good with other dogs but thrives better in a small pack - alone or with 1 or 2 other dogs, that is an ideal situation for him. He really hates it in his loft, and would much rather lounge around on the couch, with a consistent and experienced owner, in a quiet environment, far away from the hustle and bustle of the shelter.

Fabienne's diary - Cat family left in a box in front of the gate, ...

 Monday 23 November 2020

When we arrived one morning there was a large cardboard box at the door. There was only a sheet hanging over the cardboard box, the box itself was empty, except for one pussy. She was staring at us, completely taken aback, she was later named Dorothy. A few days later we saw a few more extra cat's eating at the feeding places at the door and eventually we were also able to bring mama Dulce and Donette to safety and take them with us. A few days later we saw a kitten under the waste container, completely sad and not knowing what was going on or how. That became Deborah! Dulce is a bit timid, but that is getting better. You can tell that they were domestic cats, they are very people-oriented and clearly know how to cuddle with their people, they give kisses and are sweet. In the beginning it was a bit of a wait-and-see but that gradually passed after they got to know us better and better. A whole family that now has to look for a safe haven again. They deserve to be so happy and to be taken care of.

Fabienne's Diary: Izzy, finally released from the killing station after three years ...

 Sunday 22 November 2020

It was a tough day, the day we took 38 dogs from the killing station. We talked to the people who work there, and I asked them “Who is the dog that has been there the longest?” Normally the dogs are put to sleep when they are full, or after 10 days when they are legally allowed to do so, but some dogs are lucky in one way or another - if you can call it that - and stay alive. Often because of their character or the special bond they have with one of the caretakers there. That's how it was with Izzy. She came in as a little girl and had been there for almost 3 years now. Because of her soft and good character, they could not bear to put her to sleep, and so she stayed alive. The circumstances in which she had to live were difficult to recount but that day Izzy went with us. Izzy may not be a beauty, and her hair has never been groomed. She is a bit timid at first, then moves on to a deep, modest, but pure friendship! A beauty inside that's plain to see, such a sweet little creature. She is now with us and we want to do everything we can to finally see her shine next to a loving owner.

Fabienne's weekly overview


Sunday 22 November 2020

It was a week of trial and error, ... we can no longer keep up with the dumping of all the kittens and dogs. We are gradually heading for Christmas; that makes us all even more sensitive. Much strength to all in the name of our stragglers. Despite all the misery, we wish everyone a nice new weekπŸ€πŸ’ͺ🏼🐾
