We are lucky to have found a few true animal lovers who feed, love, care for and socialize our dogs while they’re at our Hope shelter. The same goes for the land owner who allowed us to build our shelter on his land. Please consider a donation towards our monthly rent and care fees. Our dogs are loved and cared for at the Hope shelter and we are grateful.
Shelter rent and care for Hope VMS Elaine's Dogs is 1,520 Euros a month. Due by the 10th of each month, rent is 470 Euros. That same day we need to pay our dedicated shelter workers, Dejan, 380 euros, and Kristina, 300 euros. Dejan has dedicated himself to our dogs for many years. Each day he cleans their runs (boxes) and lets them out to play. Kristina joins Dejan in these responsibilities, as well as providing Maya with English translation, for communication with potential adopters and our donors.
They both give individual socialization, providing love, and a calming, consistent presence in the dogs' lives, which often in the past has been traumatic and difficult. With 59 dogs and 2 puppies, it’s a tiring job, but Dejan and Kristina love them all dearly. Their knowledge of the character of each individual dog provides the basis for matching each with an eventual forever home.
You can donate towards rent and care on a one-off basis or by making a regular monthly pledge.
