He darted around the bend like a firework
From the perspective of Gut Aiderbichl
(written by Gisela Pschenitschnig)
An employee of our dog shelter in Romania stopped at the highway, when she saw a motionless dog, lying on the roadside. The dog had probably been hit by a car and died from her injuries. The young woman suspected that somewhere there was a puppy and tried to lure him, which was not so easy. Suddenly, he came out of his hiding place - Sylvester, a handsome brown and white mongrel. Nicky took him to the Gut Aiderbichl dogs shelter. His life shall be a good one from now on.
The whimpering of the dogs mixed with the tears of the helpers
Was Sylvester's mom maybe a stray? Unfortunately, she can no longer tell us. Sylvester was born in a country where we are confronted with horrible animal suffering every day. A few years ago, our animal emergency center received a call for help from Glina. In this small romanian town, a former lawyer was providing food and water to over 300 dogs. The shelter consisted of rusty building grids, without protection from rain, cold or storms. Words like sadness, horror or heartbreak would not suffice to describe the circumstances in Glina.
Iona, the angel of the dogs, walked daily many kilometers to care for them. The employees of Gut Aiderbichl found a well access at the site, we stretched roofs to protect them from the weather. Everything was like being in another world: howling, whining old and young dogs. Shy dogs and those who would have loved to jump over the fence so that we could take them with us.
Many romanian street dogs found a home
Our healthy, socialized romanian four-legged friends are placed and there is no negative feedback from the people who have adopted a dog from Romania so far. The animals are simply grateful and loyal.
The Gut Aiderbichl animal shelter in Romania is one of many projects in the spirit of love for animals in need. So far, over 300 dogs have been taken in and over 200 have been successfully placed. Not a day goes by without a heavily pregnant dog, an injured dog or a box of puppies waiting to be let in at the gate of Gut Aiderbichl in Romania.
Whether it's a homeless person or a stray dog - it's all about looking
If our employee hadn't seen a lifeless dog lying on the side of the road, what would have become of Sylvester?
Grateful and beaming with joy, he has now found a home in Gut Aiderbichl's romanian dog shelter. We wish him a wonderful place with people who want him around.
If we try to believe in the good, there will always be a way to the positive. Yours sincerely, Gisela.
