Life for rent

We are the Animal Relief Foundation

We present to your attention "Life for Rent" - a unique project aimed at supporting those who need it most. Those who cannot help themselves and cannot ask for it are our smaller brothers.

Our goal is to raise funds for the purchase of a building to house an animal shelter. Now the shelter is located on two plots of land, having the necessary communications: water supply, heating. Animals live in a heated room with a total area of more than 600 square meters. m, but many dogs winter in booths and aviaries on the street.

The main problem is that in addition to vital expenses (food, veterinary diets, diapers in large quantities for bedridden patients, veterinary and medical preparations and consumables, transportation costs and more. etc.) urgent operations of animals with fractures and maimed, the shelter is forced to pay funds to the owners of the land, and this is quite a large amount. Every month we risk all our ponytails because at any moment they can lose their roof over their heads. And how wonderful it would be if they had their own house! On the eve of winter the problem becomes even more acute.

We all know firsthand about frosts - in conditions of 15-degree cold and precipitation, animals simply cannot survive. And "special"ponytails, and even more so ... After all, many have only 2 paws ... Therefore, we ask you for help! To solve this problem, we created our project "Life for Rent".

To date, more than 450 animals - dogs and cats - live in the shelter. As well as a rabbit, a raccoon dog, a goat, a pony, birds.

Some of them are "special" animals, disabled, deprived of one or more limbs, paralyzed, hearing and sight lost. All animals undergo rehabilitation at the shelter, which helps them live. Each of the "tails" continues to believe in the kindness of man and dreams of finding his own home, finding loving owners. Every day, the organization receives unfortunate animals, many of which are in critical condition and require immediate assistance. And the guests of the shelter want to eat and drink every day, they require care and warmth.

Our shelter does not receive funding not from the regional, not from the municipal budgets, we exist only through the help of caring citizens, who, on their own and with their own means, buy food and consumables, build and heat premises, and provide veterinary care.

Our tasks:

1. Protect animals Injury and injury, pain and fear are what animals face on the street.

By donating the building to the shelter, we will be able to protect the “tails” from bullying and torment, lulling and starvation. We want all animals in the shelter had their own corner, lived in clean and comfortable conditions. Each animal admitted to the shelter is sterilized, vaccinated and medically treated. We help them to believe in kindness and humanity again, we give them not only a permanent roof over their heads, but also warmth, regular meals and care - that is what they cannot provide for themselves. Sterilization and necessary care can reduce the number of hungry stray dogs on the streets of our city, minimize attacks on children. The safety of people and animals is in our hands!

2. Find the "tails" of the real owners. During the existence of the project, more than 1,600 animals have found a home and loving owners. But we must not stop there!

Each of the 450 "tails" living in the shelter is worthy of love and affection.

Often we are visited by those who cannot take the animal home, but want to help him. We dream of hosting more guests in our shelter, those who helps with deeds and gives ponytails care and attention. We want people to get positive emotions when they come to our shelter and learn to help those in need.

3. Conduct information education and education of citizens.

The “Lesson of kindness” is regularly held within the walls of the shelter - an event for schoolchildren and students. We teach children and teenagers to be mindful attitude towards animals.

Each person must understand that he is responsible for those whom he has tamed. For the implementation of the project (purchase of 1/2 of the building) $100,000 required. For a shelter, this amount is too heavy. Therefore, we ask for your help and participation. Don't stay away from the problem!

Help ponytails find a permanent home and become happy!

Together we can!

But, unfortunately, even for these primary needs, the shelter does not always have enough funds.
