More donations for our animals!Published 16 Feb, 2019 under Donations

Here we are with a computer from Hannelore Glibert, food from Almo Nature, cages and beds from Dawn Bishop and, last but not least, a generous donation raised by Juliette Brinkman that was used to pay a big invoice with @Vetefarma, our very patient Italian vendor of veterinary medicines!

Some more food by Almo Nature that has been supporting us for many years.

3 of the 6 cages donated by our friend Dawn Bishop. They are a fundamental working tool for our driver Ravi Silva, who is usually alone to carry them with one or more dog inside.

One of the beautiful Kuranda Dog Beds we received in January from Dawn Bishop. Thank you Dawn for raising funds and donating for this great present!

Juliette Brinkmann with our children Max, Samba, Bea and Erica (now in Belgium with her great mother Hannelore Hauquier) during visit at our office. The generous donations Juliette raised among relatives and friends were used to pay an invoice for 1700 euros with Vetefarma, our Italian supplier of veterinarian medicines.
Thanks to all our donors!

What we need most now are volunteers!
