Basic information

The decision to adopt a dog or cat should be followed by a well-thought-out preparation. It is advisable to gather as much information as possible about the animals in the shelter. The following questions can be helpful for a good start in your new home:

  • Why is the animal in the shelter?
  • What is known about the animal’s previous life?
  • Does the animal need medication?
  • Does the animal have food allergies/intolerances?
  • How does the animal behave with other dogs, cats and humans?

Animal shelters welcome donated, endangered and abandoned animals, providing them with temporary accommodation suitable for the species and provide professional and expert care. Although an animal shelter should actually be just short-term care, dogs, puppies, cats, kittens and small animals often wait many months or even years for a new friend to give them a second chance at life.
