    Most of our rescues have been through very hard times in their lifes. They have been abused, suffered unimaginable pain, solitude or illness. They need care, attention, love, acceptance and patience. We need help to socialize and train them. Especially our puppies and juniors are happy to have someone who show them how to walk on a leash, play and build up a connection.
    Beside the social interactions we need a strong and helping hand to walk the adult dogs, pick up poo, carrying the dogs for example when they're paralyzed and bathing them, to clean the place and for mass feedings and rescues outside on the streets.
