We take the pleasure to inform you that  our Winter is Coming project has been completed! We seize the opportunity to thank everyone who contributed for this and first of all for believing in us!

Without your trust and help, all this would hardly be possible in such a short  time!

We managed to finish just before the cold time arrived in Bulgaria!

We truly thank you from the bottom  of our  hearts … as well as on behalf of all our four-legged friends!

Merry Christmas from Mission Dog… and see you next year with new battles ahead!

 

 

Our co-operation with an independent organization in the city of Burgas resulted in opening of a first-aid shelter. However, the state of the building does not allow to accommodate the dogs there with the needed protection against harsh winter conditions.

The bottom line is that the structure does feature neither a suitable roof nor isolated cells for sick dogs, puppies or dogs with behavioral issues. Running  all animal related activities in such conditions (even though they are better and safer than life on the streets) is difficult enough and as a result longer time is needed for  full recovery of the  health of the animals as well as bigger commitment and sacrifices from volunteers are required.

As of now, we have sheltered about 50 dogs, all of them neutered as well as around twenty  puppies waiting to be fostered. The puppies have been collected from the streets after their mothers were killed or were born in the shelter, their mothers having arrived here impregnated.

WHY WE NEED YOU HELP?

HERE’S WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO DO

The project foresees total value of approximately 8500 Swiss francs and includes: regulation of the land lot adjacent to the estate, cement foundation of the ground which will enable better cleaning and sanitizing of the place. Apart from that, building 14 isolation cells and assembly of 24 wooden cassettes is planned. If we manage to raise more funds, the next step will be to buy more wooden cassettes and to order a roof that is now not existent.

WHO OVERSEES THE  EXPENDITURE AND THE PROGRESS OF THE PROJECT?

The President of NGO Association Mission Dog, Irena Dragova Pedrotti shall pay regular visits to the structure and in this way shall guarantee proper use of raised funds and first of all implementation of the activities under the project. The costs of traveling and stay shall be entirely on the President herself and so these costs will not reduce the available funds to help the animals.

UP-TO-DATE STATUS OF THE STRUCTURE

This is how the structure looks like now. We will be so proud if we are able soon to post more pictures showing better conditions thanks to your donations!
