ER: Gunter

Posted on 21 November 2019

Sad, but true – despite all our efforts, sometimes the reason for a doggie to end up in the ER, are his roommates in the kennel.

Gunter is with us since he was a tiny little puppy. He was found by German tourists in… wait for it… Macedonia and as they weren’t aware he cannot cross borders just like that, at the end he came to us.

And because he was so tiny and young, he spent long time in the clinic, before he was fully vaccinated and ready to go with the others.

Though, his 4 roommates, although they are his size, attacked him yesterday.


Gunter is fine, just a bit scared, but we will keep him in the clinic for a bit more, because we don’t have other possibilities to place such a peanut.

“The Farm” is overcrowded for months. Dumping puppies in front of our door at night, became a threat for our existence – the lack of space and the overcrowding is not only dangerous in the way Gunter suffered. It also may cause spread of diseases, exhaustion of the staff and lack of funds to cover the expenses of all those animals.

Gunter and many like him need us. To help them, we need your help! You may help us continue, by donating:

Alice in Wonderland

Posted on 18 November 2019

Alice in Wonderland? Are you sure?

If a pessimist takes a look at Alice’s life, probably he would say Alice has a very, very bad luck.
She was born in someone’s home, but left with her mother for only 2 weeks!

Then she and her siblings found themselves in a cardbox and thrown away. And among all 9, Alice was the one to somehow break her leg. And because of that, she is the only one, still living in the shelter, after all her siblings were adopted.

The optimist, though, would see something else!

Puppies, taken away from the mother so early and left on the street, had almost zero chance of survival.

Yet, the box with Alice ended up in our shelter and all 9 survived!
Yes, Alice has a broken leg, but she heals so well, soon no one will be able to say it happened!
She may be was left behind to wait for her adopter, but probably this is, because she is waiting for someone really special!

Tell us, isn’t that good luck? Aren’t miracles happening to Alice?

ER: Sara

Posted on 15 November 2019

We continue to introduce you our patients with the lovely paralyzed Sara.

Sara was hit by a car and left with fully paralyzed back legs. Yet, she still feels her legs and we hope she could get better after treatment.

It is probably too late for a surgery – before coming to us, Sara has spent some time at other clinics.

We don’t know what will happen to Sara after that. She cannot stay with us forever, because we don’t have the needed settings to give her a good life.


She has people, responsible and taking care of her, but they also don’t have a plan for her future.
If you have any ideas – let us know. Sara is an amazing doggie and deserves the best.

ER: Sirma

Posted on 13 November 2019

This huge and incredibly good creature is the worst case we have had for years now.

A hit by a car leaves her broken. But the broken leg is not the worst.

The head trauma is much scarier – because of this Sirma is deaf and almost blind.

You may be wonder, if it isn’t more mercifully to put her to sleep?

You wouldn’t wonder, if you knew her.
If you have seen her wagging her tale, whenever we go near her.

If you could feel the beating of her heart, every time she cuddles.

Sirma is a dog, who lives to love. Her happiness doesn’t depend on hearing or vision. It depends on feelings. She wants so much to love and to be love!

Sirma is a dog that must be saved!
