My Name is Monkey

I am a 6 year old female, sterilised and very friendly. I found Mrs Bogza, the lady who runs the shelter, 4 years ago when I was living on the streets. Mrs Bogza had something nice-smelling in her shopping bag and I followed that smell until we reached her home! She then took me to live at her shelter so I wasn’t in danger on the busy roads anymore, but I would love to have a home of my own. Because I am such a good girl I am allowed to walk around the shelter outside of the paddocks each day, and I love it when there are visitors to make a fuss of me! Can you help me find a forever home please, Or would you like to sponsor me for €25 per month or buy a bag of food for me and my kennel mates each month for €5?

Meet Malik

This lovely teddy bear is also looking for his home. Malik is a good-natured dog and is looking for people to whom he can give his heart and where he too may experience love

Two very scared dogs, about 5 years old. They were abandoned with their mum and two brothers in the street. Unfortunately the other two were killed by car. These two were taken to shelter when they were puppies with their mum. She died of cancer soon after she was taken to shelter and after her death they became very scared and are staying just inside the cages when someone is going inside their paddock. These two are still having therapy for their shyness

Miky - #139-Paddock 41

Hi, I'm Miky, I was saved right on st. Michael and Gabriel, 7 years ago. I was just a baby, they found me more dead than alive, crushed by a car. No one gave me a chance but I healed spectacularly after surgery, I really wanted to live. Now I am looking for my forever family - people to love me and share their sofa and their hearts with me. Are you that family?
