If it weren’t for the quarantine and you could visit the shelter last week, you’d find The Farm shelter angry and moody, with a team on the brink of exhaustion and despair.
On the wall:
– a list of the dogs ill with distemper and the ones who show symptoms (by hours);
– a list of the tens of life-saving drugs and materials not available due to lack of money;
– a list of the foods, necessary for the ill and risky dogs not available due to lack of money;
– an endless list of debt to different warehouses and providers, left unpaid this month, due to overspending for the ill animals.
A little Hell on Earth, full of desperate people and suffering animals. Tears, nerves, sadness, helplessness, hopelessness… and death.
We asked you for help.
And you helped us, dear friends!
In-kind donations that were brought to the shelter and Pets&U stores
Your donations have provided:
-a full set of medication and materials for the animals already ill with distemper;
-tests for early diagnosis of the animals in risk;
-serums, supplements, good food for the ill, weak and the puppies (for 10 days);
-revaccinations with a DP (Distemper and Parvovirosis) for all the puppies up to 6 months of age.
The truth is that this is a rare occasion in Bulgaria – so many people who generously unite around a common cause, no hate, no suspicion, no splitting. From a good heart, out of love.
We thank the hundreds of donors that took part in yet another dog miracle.
We thank everyone who sent their support through bank, e-Pay, PayPal or DMS, in our collection boxes at the Pets&U stores.
We thank the people who chose to donate medications and materials for the clinic, as well as the donors, who sent or brought materials for cleaning, disinfection and medications from humane pharmacies.
We thank a special friend of the Farm for covering our unpaid bills for food; the team of co-workers who collected money to pay or electricity bill, we thank Kizomba Maniacs for organizing a fundraising party.
We thank you for being here, for keeping our back. Animal Rescue Sofia has been saving lives 7 years already, thanks to your kindness and generosity. There are no words to express our gratitude.
Although all of the un-vaccinated animals in contact with the disease have contracted the virus, we managed to keep the infection confined to the quarantine ward where it began. We hope our severe measures to contain the Distemper will be enough and there would be no new cases.
The quarantine will be prolonged till 01.06.2017.
Although the immediate crisis is under control, there is still great need of HELP. We are grateful even for the smallest donation.
After the most urgent medical bills have been covered, currently the shelter needs most of all – food. Especially puppy food of high quality.
If you are able to help – use this option as the best cost/quality product, so far we have enough puppy food for the period of quarantine:
We seek the best quality dry foods, with a high percentage of protein and fat.
Happy Dog has a great ProfiLine for kennels, in 20kg bags that aren’t designed for puppies, but would be excellent for our youngsters and are very reasonably priced:

And just to let you know how the problem is handled…
