We thank Granddad Mony for the enclosure he made for the puppies!
We thank the wondeful families who joined us this lively Saturday afternoon in support of the doggies! See the GUEST LIST. Not only did the team manage to make it a truely friendly and inspirational afternoon, but there were 400 BGN collected for the dogs and puppies of Bogrov! It was such a wonderful event – full of bright smiles and good attitude. The kids loved the puppies and visa-versa – the party couldn’t have been better.
This time it was WATER FUN! The kids had went crazy in the swimming pool! An hour or so into the party it actually started to rain, so we switched indoor and had a fun lottery and some games. It was a day to remember, everyone went home with presents, happy and exhausted!
Thanks to Ivan Kulekov and Slavi for the wonderful 10-minute film they aired on Bulgaria’s most wached talkshow – Slavi’s show. We are very happy to get so many positive comments and hope more people will join the effort to help stray animals, neuter and adopt.
Our own Martin Miliev had the opportunity to talk to 50 kids from Bulgaria and Germany at a seminar, hosted by Sofia Municipality on the topic of solving the stray-dog problem. The kids were all between the ages of 14-18 and were there to learn more about stray dogs. Matrin was there to tell more about the way we work at Animal Rescue Sofia.
Mrs Sylvana Stierschneider-Penkner of Tierhilfe Seuden had pressed charges against the vet, responcible for the euthanasia of Jerry – the dog whose legs were chopped off by a savage in the village of Traykovo. As you know – Jerry’s case touched the hearts of many – he was taken in to Bogrov shelter and found a wonderful home with Sanny Schulz at Kleine Tiere by Mrs Sonya Mitreva of Tierhilfe Seuden. The tragedy happened on his journey to safety – he was stolen and euthanised “for humane reasons” by a lady who was supposed to keep him for 2 days before his new owners took him. Since Jerry was in the formal ownership of Tierhilfe Seuden, chairlady Mrs Stierschneider has filed a lawsuit against the veterinary who put the dog to sleep without the TS written concent, thus killing him illegaly. We will keep you informed on the outcome of the trial.
There were many questions raised about the wellbeing of Tommy – the dog that Jerry travelled with. We want to emphasize one more time that it was not Tommy’s adoptee Manuela Auberle who put Jerry to sleep as some have misunderstood. Tommy is safe and sound with his family, sending tail-wags:
The team games led by Danny and the two team leaders – Kraddy and Katina were a great success – football with a huge ball; the mummy game; the balloon games – of course everyone went crazy in the part for balloon-popping; the quiz… Of course – there were no losers in the games, how else would it be :)!
The kids loved the snacks that were set out for them; they were running around all the time – where do they get the energy!? And the puppies got so much hugging and petting – even more than they hoped for!
Enjoy Pavlina Samokovlieva’s fantastic photos, and we hope you don’t miss the fun next time:
Thank you Danny, Eli and Krassi for this wonderful day! May our kids grow to be tolerant and kind to everyone and everything in this world 🙂
