Helping the dog shelter in Rivne
Our Lean and Sharp team is passionate about helping those who cannot fight for themselvesand struggle to get their place under the sun. The creatures we call our best friends – dogs, unfortunately, are very often abandoned, ending up in a constant search of food and shelter.But luckily, there are people who are ready to help. Such people started a non-for-profit organization in Ukraine, Rivne, which is called “Nadiia”. This is a dog shelter, founded by Alisa Mamchur, who has devoted the last 18 years of her life to giving stray city dogs a forever home. Started in 2002, the shelter now has 80 dogs, all sterilized and given a proper place to live, medication, food, care, and love. However, looking after such a large amount ofdogs requires not only constant time and effort, but also funds. We are glad to share our lovefor dogs with the workers of the shelter and contribute to this good cause. We’ve decided to help the shelter with its numerous hardships. Our first project for the shelter was building the aviary for dogs as the old one has been damaged with time. The new aviary includes new cold- and rain-protected kennels, fences and has enough space for 6 dogs to comfortably live together. The building of the aviary demanded not only the construction materials but also the work of the specialists. All the work here has been finished in a week, and now the dogs that needed this space have proper living conditions. We know that much work in the shelter is still ahead, but we are happy that we’ve made this small but important step to improve the welfare of the shelter “Nadiia”.
