December is the time to think about all of those who need help. Today we have so many innocent animals who have been abandoned by their family, who are lonely and sad. Fortunately, we have a place where people can take care of them – but that’s not enough. They need love and attention, and sadly many of them have to spend their Christmas in shelters.
As part of the support to these animals, I give 1% from each reservation to the organization, so they can take care of these animals, by supporting them with food and all they need to survive. The donations go to the Estonian Homeless Animals association called “Varjupaikade NGO.” It is the nonprofit organization that has shelters for homeless animals around in 7 places all around in Estonia. I collect donations from my service payments between December 1 to December 20, 2019.
Varjupaikade NGO (Animal Shelters NGO) was founded in 2007, and it represents more than half of the shelters for homeless animals in Estonia. Our shelters are located in Lääne County, Pärnu, Tallinn, Valga, Viljandi, Lääne-Viru County, Võru, and we continuously look after about 100 dogs and 400 cats.
Our goals are to help lost animals make their way back home, find new loving homes for abandoned or stray animals and inform people about the importance of spaying or neutering and marking animals, and the high number of unwanted pets. In order to achieve our goals, we also cooperate with other similar institutions and local government and supervisory bodies, organise various training days and fundraising events, assist local authorities in the development of regulations on keeping pets, prepare and disseminate written information materials and cooperate with the press to promote the good practise of keeping pets. Our cats need 60 kg cat food and dogs 50 kg dogfood every day”
