Whilst the world around us is going mad,
whilst people kill each other for black gold and religion,
whilst wars are burning, bombs exploding and men are kneeling to be shot…
Whilst everyone else sends peace and kindness to hell, taking an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, there is a small group of people who said „Je suis solidaire“ without much talk. Solidarity with the suffering around me, the weaker ones, the ones who have nothing – not even a voice to ask for help…
The world is different for us today. But not by more innocent blood being spilt. That is no news, sadly.
Our world is warmer today, it is a kinder world.
Dear friends of the dogs, Dear friends of ARS, Dear people,
WE HAVE SUCCESSFULLY RAISED THE FUNDS FOR THE SHELTER HEATING!
From now on – and forever – the Farm will be able to provide warmth to every patient in the clinic, every shelter dog!
THANK YOU! WE LOVE YOU!
On behalf of all the dogs we care for, and of the ones we are yet to help as well, we wish that this kindness comes back to you a hundred times. May you never, ever have to be dependent to anyone or needing help. But if that ever happens – may you receive it like you gave it – generously and without asking for anything in return.
Winter is coming!
Cold is coming, Ice is coming, Shivering is coming…
this year, for the first time in the 5 years we’ve existed as an organization – we can provide warmth to ALL the dogs living with us in the dark winter nights!
give this idea a few minutes of your time, the dogs would be greatly obliged!
What’s this about?
It’s all about the purchase of 2 solid fuel boilers to heat up the dog building (floor heating) and the clinic (radiators) at the Farm! We need to raise some serious money if we don’t want our buddies to be cold again.
2 boilers would be really costly though. And since it would be difficult to raise the money we need for both – a Wizard came forth with yet another miracle!
This Wizard appeared in the form of an Anonymous Donor – ready to give the dogs the second boiler they need, as long as we all manage to raise the funds for the first.
So, here’s the magic equation: 1 boiler funded by us = 2 boilers for the dogs!
Why is it so important to do this?
Please, consider a donation, it will make a great difference to the lives of our animals.
Every modest donation makes a change for the dogs in need!
Our healthy dogs and puppies live in a separate building – “The Farm”, in cells that have little yards. This means there are open doggy-doors on both sides which makes it useless to try and warm air. To keep the dogs healthy we came up with floor heating. It is an inexpensive, yet sufficient way to give them enough warmth for a good life November – February. It can get as cold as -10 in the winter here.
The other building we need to keep warm is where all the injured, ill and recovering animals will be, along with the youngest puppies and nursing mothers – “The Franziska clinic”. It is much smaller and has 8 rooms, so it will be heated with panels. Warmth really means a lot to the most vulnerable animals at our shelter – the clinic needs to be at least +15 in winter.
How about these boilers?
We have found something really clever, clean and fuel-effective – Torch Heating Systems.
They were invented and manufactured in Bulgaria and are highly efficient. And that is very important, since we will be using them to keep dogs warm for years to come.
Besides being cost-effective we also chose Torch for the computer control panel. The boiler can work throughout the night without people having to fuel it. The reloading is fully automatic.
We were impressed by the machine and are thank Torch heating systems for the discount they made for the dogs.
Each 1BGN you donate = 2!
6 000 BGN (E3 000) is the full amount we must raise.
This includes everything – the boiler itself, the installation, heating panels and chimney it needs.
Every donation you make – IS DOUBLED!
If we do raise 6 000, our Anonymous Donor will double the amount so we can get both boilers the shelter needs!
Please, if you are able – don’t hesitate to make even a small donation for the dogs.
We have already helped thousands, and will help thousands more together.
This is the way to do it right!
Every person willing to help us reach this important goal can donate by bank, by e-pay, PayPal or on spot at the shelter.*
6 000 may seem like a horrible lot, but if only 10% of the people who like us on Facebook would donate just 1BGN – we are done!
* – you can send us a note along with your donation: “for heating”. But if you have missed that option – don’t worry, when we have an active campaign we consider every donation (apart from subscriptions) to be for that goal.
