21 sweeties in Holland

09 June 2017 | Blog

After a month without transports and adoptions, the first thing we did in the end of the quarantine was – TRANSPORT VIII/2017.

We sent 20 angels and the sweetest mommy in the world to a new life in Holland – where they will be loved family pets, and not unwanted mutts.

The journey was successful and 21 tails greet us like flags from the homes of their foster families. At the start of a brand new life, 2000km from here.

We thank all our friends, colleagues, volunteers and donors for their support – it takes so many kind hearts  for a puppy to cross over from the Ditch to the Dutch…

So here are the little mice you gave happiness to this week – the way you knew them at the Farm and in the first steps of a happy future they never even dreamed of…

One-eyed Mommy Ella and her 5 babies

Abandoned outside a village, mommy Ella gave life to 6 furry babies. Emaciated, nursing and very, very hungry, she listened to her instincts and started stealing hens. But although she looks like a fox, she is not at all cunning, and the villages quickly found out.

The next time she tried to find something to eat, Ella was severely injured and lost half of her eye. One of the puppies was also killed. Then, a kind neighbor stepped forward and hid the rest in his basement, looking for a solution for the whole family.

Elly came into the clinic with a badly infected eye and very thin. She had to go through treatment and keep nursing at the same time. And she did such a fine job! Huge, fluffy, joyful and healthy – her pups are an example of good mother care.

D-r Marincheva removed Elly’s eye and closed it, we reared the little ones and she finally started to put on weight. We’re so happy that the whole family travelled together to their foster home – this way their adopters will be able to keep the family close.


Our best regards to everyone in the chain of rescue – in three months we managed to turn a village tragedy into an Amsterdam fairy-tale for 6 good hearts. Healthy and smiling on the green grass…

Venus and Williams from Gorni Bogrov

We admitted two tiny scared sisters who were dumped in the village center on a spring night. We named them Serena and Venus. A day later, we stumbled upon this tiny little guy at our door – so very alike them, there was no way he isn’t their brother. So, we raised them all together and named him Williams.

Besides looking alike, the three really were a close family. They lived in quarantine for quite a while – vaccinations, neutering… and no complaint ever. Serena was adopted locally, and Venus and Williams found their people in Holland.

Silky Keeva (above) Fynn, and Marshelly are three puppies someone dumped in a trash shoot. When they were brought we had no room and the same family kept them at home for vaccinations.

Such gentle and clever souls, very loving and smart.

Litter D

8 huge black monkeys (with a white sheep in the heard – Donny). Of course, dumped from someone’s back-yard. It doesn’t cost anything to just abandon a box of pups in the trash, and why not repeat it in 6 months, and then again…

The 2-month work with a litter so large in numbers: 24 vaccines, 68 deworming pills, 200 kilograms of puppy food, 8 spay/neuter surgeries. (and this is without counting the re-vaccination during our quarantine, the food supplements; the treatments for 3 of the babies; the time that the vets, keepers and volunteers invest in keeping the puppies happy and people-oriented.)

True luck. Because for puppies this large and so dark it’s crucial to be rehomed at the youngest possible age. If they grow over 6 months of age on the shelter, this usually means they will stay here forever…

Martha and Masha

Found abandoned in the village Bistrica, the sisters are really lovely – two of those most cuddly and friendly babies.

There definitely is a connection between the color and attitude of dogs, as the sweethearts of this type are always very cheerful and friendly creatures.

We continue

A big hug for our logistics masterminds Vivi and Nadia, for doctors Vicky and Polly, for drivers Marty and Valio – each journey on our “life-line” is such an amazing adventure, sometimes makes your hair turn gray.

It might look like “yet another” but we know it is “the Journey” for the dogs on it. And it’s worth all the nerves and problems, the tons of paperwork and crazy organizing of so many people, thousands of kilometers away…
