Ever since the first animal shelters opened in the 19th Century, dogs and cats have been housed in cages. Our open-space natural shelter concept is based on cage free housing because dogs and cats are social animals.
We are radically reshaping the way rescue animals are sheltered and re-homed:
to provide an open-space natural living environment
to create a living space harmonious with nature
to relieve stress so the animals can decompress
to provide a safe, nurturing environment for rehabilitation
Our mission is to modernise the whole animal welfare infrastructure in Eastern Europe, through building EU Traces compliant, state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly Natural Shelters, where abandoned dogs and cats can be spaciously housed ‘at one with nature’ to create a stress-free natural living environment to allow them to fully decompress and aid in their recovery and rehabilitation from both mental and physical trauma.
Our first project is in Ukraine, and will comprise 3 phases:
PHASE 1 – delivering vital food and medical aid to both abandoned animals and owned animals in destroyed villages whose families have literally been left with nothing and no means to feed their animals.
PHASE 2 – liaising with the Ukrainian authorities to have procedures put into place to allow the ease of movement of homeless animals into the EU which is currently bureaucratic and difficult
PHASE 3 – buy land and build our flagship EU standard Traces compliant shelter
Phase 3 of our project aims to meet both the immediate needs of the dogs and cats of Ukraine, to get them housed in a EU standard Traces compliant shelter where they can be prepared for onward rehoming in Western Europe, as well as creating a flagship open-space, cage-free and therefore stress-free shelter, to lead by example how true animal welfare can be achieved with some creative planning of the shelter space.
Our long term vision is to then use our flagship shelter in Ukraine to then build more of Traces compliant shelters across Eastern Europe, thereby changing the future of animal rescue in Europe and beyond.
