WHEN ANIMALS IN EASTERN EUROPE SUFFER NEGLECT, CRUELTY & ABUSE WE GIVE THEM KINDNESS, LOVE & A NEW LIFE
By area, Every Dog Matters EU is the largest no-cage, open-yard dog sanctuary in Bulgaria (25,000 m2). Every Dog Matters EU, a registered nonprofit NGO (Reg. 205679614), was founded by and is directed by Australian Terry Kyle.
Apart from a couple of temporary yards for puppies and emergencies, our smallest yards are 400 m2 to 630 m2 (expandable to 1260 m2) and our large yards range from 1,600 m2 (under construction) to 2,400 m2 (with 400 m2 of indoor space).
Visitors to our site are usually amazed by the space the dogs have here and how happy and friendly they are. Here our dogs play with each other constantly every day whereas at most tiny-cage, prison-style shelters, the dogs are too depressed, too frustrated and too fearful to play at all.
We hope that shelter operators EVERYWHERE across the world strongly consider switching to the no-cage, open-yard model as the dogs are much happier, healthier, better socialised and more adoptable.
All that is needed is land – every country has unwanted land – and ambition.
EveryDogMatters.eu is trying to lead the future of rescue dog management with our first (of many) no-cage, open yard dog sanctuaries (we will have rescue cats later in 2021 too).
The Every Dog Matters EU sanctuary approach is very different from most medieval-style prison shelters for dogs because we give our sweet pooches and puppies:
– huge open yards that are not overcrowded with dogs (see the videos & pictures www.everydogmatters.eu)
– very regular walks in the open farmland adjoining our site (many thanks to our generous volunteers too!)
– high quality food instead of the cheapest possible non-nutritional garbage usually given to shelter dogs
– the best possible medical care including preventive care against heart-worm etc
– constant socialization with people (staff & our growing volunteer hero army), and,
– ongoing efforts to find their loving forever homes
Taking great care of our dogs is our number one priority. We work hard, each and every day, to do so. One the best ways to ensure we can is having the right equipment on hand to assist in quickly diagnosing any possible problems. So, our next step is to create a vet facility on site which will enable us to take better care of all our animals. We already have an amazing vet ready to back us up, but we need two machines for blood analyzing. Having this equipment is crucial so we can react fast when our dogs are in need. The total for both machines is $10,000. The difference in care we can provide with just these two machines will lessen overall suffering and discomfort for all in our care greatly.
This is why we are reaching out to you. We don’t have the funds to make this happen, but we hope you will be willing to chip in. Will you help us give the kind of care our dogs need?
