The NGO Animal Rescue Sofia runs the largest private dog shelter in Bulgaria. At this stage, the charity organization is accommodating 224 dogs. During the winter months, the situation for the shelter gets more complicated. Now they are running out of dog food and wood pellets for the heating system. This dig kennel needs help. And they need it now.  

Out of all doggies assembled here, at a former industrial complex, some 10 kilometers from Sofia, the smaller and younger dogs, who sleep in the one building they have, need to be kept warm. A total of 60 dogs are suffering from bronchitis already.

In winter, dogs need to eat more, in order to stay warm. This means, Animal Rescue Sofia needs twice the amount of dog food, compared to the warmer months.

Anna, a Polish expat in Bulgaria, just started a dog food collection activity for Animal Rescue Sofia. So far, she has collected 130 kilos, but she wants to double that amount. For those who want to contribute, please contact Anna via Facebook Messenger. The time would be now, since she intends to have the dog food delivered to the kennel on December 10th, 2016.

For those who are reading this afterwards, but who still want to help, you can contact Animal Rescue Sofia or just donate via their website.

In summer of 2016, we published this article, which introduces the kennel.
