The funds, needed to fix the dog bus have been raised and the babies will be able to travel to their new homes just as before!
Our fingers are crossed for a reliable service and no more troubles for our Kalcho.

In September 2012, with the generous help of 9 people and 5 organizations, we managed to buy our van “Kalcho” – to bring the shelter dogs to their new homes in Austria, Germany and Holland.

During this period, the bus has made over 70 journeys, loaded with over 2000 passengers – homeless Bulgarian dogs who have found loving families abroad. Each journey goes full in both directions – on the way there (with dogs) and back (with donations from our colleagues – food, bedding, crates, medications…)

Today, 3,5 years later, Kalcho already has 600 000km on his mileage, and needs a general repair to be able to bring more dogs to their destination Happiness.

We haven’t left Kalcho without mechanical care all this time. We had to replace the doors, we bought a new brake apparatus, we changed the ABS pump, the radiator of the cooling system…

Also, ever since we’ve had the bus – we never had to buy tires, or pay anything to change them – we’ve always been able to rely on the help of amazing Snejana Georgieva of KRISTO 2. We never paid a penny for tires, despite the regular changes.

Only now, we expect the bus to return from the last journey it could make in its current condition. If we don’t repair it – that’s it, it will remain on guard in the shelter yard. No more journeys until we’re able to make the following repairs:

  • A new servo for the steering wheel (it doesn’t work, needs many new parts);
  • New hand brakes (the whole apparatus has to be replaced);
  • A new front bumper (the old one has been glued too many times);
  • A new front light (we will buy it second hand).

We need BGN1300 (E667) to be able to repair the doggy bus. That’s a lot of money we don’t have.
But, if we raise them or not will decide if we will be able to continue sending our babies to colleagues abroad, where they are loved and cherished pets, not homeless mutts.

Could you help us? It may not seem urgent and important, but that bus is the only way out for so many animals, it brings them to love, to care, it is an only chance for thousands…

Starting in 2010 and until today, united, we’ve been able to provide good homes abroad for 3 503 dogs. We thank the People, who will decide to chip-in, so we can double this number!
