Adoptable Dogs

Find Your Next Best Friend

At Our Shelter!

All our pets are up to date on vaccines and have been dewormed.

We are more than happy to assist you with any concern involving the adoption

regarding travel and exporting the animal to your home country.

 

Etna

Etna was a sick little puppy when we found her near the market in Rus.

She grew up in the shelter but no one came for her.

Etna loves to play and to interact. She can be your perfect best friend.

Visit us and meet her.

Spotty

He is Spotty, and he has been a stray since the house where he was being fostered was destroyed.

He walks all the streets of Shkodra and comes for lunch to the shelter.

Spotty is very smart and has quite a temper.

He loves to be the leader of the group and to run free all over the place.

An active family with a big yard would be ideal for him.

Mama and Lordes

These two are mother and daughter. Lordes was born in our shelter and Mama was a stray dog living near the shelter. She had six babies but we couldn’t find a home for Lordes, nor for her. They have been with us since the creation of the shelter. and are nice and calm dogs. Please consider their adoption together as they are really attached to each other.

Viki

Vicky is such a lovely dog.

She just came into the shelter and never left.

Her most deliberate characteristic: she loves food so much that she will eat in everybody’s plate and she will invite herself anywhere she smells it.

Vicky needs a family, a very active one, where she can be loved and spoiled all the time. 🙂 Come and meet her!

Aurora

Aurora was a sick little puppy living in Shiroka, when we took her to the shelter. She has grown up to be a beautiful dog. She is energetic and super healthy. In a group of dogs, she tends to dominate, that is why her ideal family would be one with no other animals. Help Aurora find the love she deserves. Adopt her or be her Guardian Angel!

Sindi

Our poor Sindi has been with us since the opening of the shelter. She is a free spirit that loves to run and play. Unfortunately she was infected with leishmania. She lost weight and appetite and had to spend one month in the “Putrat” Vet clinic to recover.  She is better now, but this illness needs to be controlled periodically. We know that she will not be adopted in Albania, nor can we release her back to the street, ever! Please, help us through our Guardian Angel program so that you may adopt her from your home country.

Nemo

Nemo was 6 months when she was hit by a car near our shelter. One of the volunteers saw her unable to move in the middle of the street and immediately took her in.

She was in pain for several days and couldn’t move her back legs. We feared she might need an amputation because of the bad condition of her left leg. But with the proper medication, rest, good food and caresses, she was healed within 5 weeks.

Nemo deserves to have a family and lots of love. Please, help us find her a forever home!

Drita

This shy girl is called Drita. In English means ”Light”. We gave her this name because her eyes are full of light which can hypnotize you.

Drita was 8 months old when she came into our shelter. We tried to get her sooner but she was so scared of humans that we had to ask for professional help in order to catch her.

Several injuries in her body, mange and signs of a survived distemper had marked her behavior. She is a handicapped and prefers to stay inside the kennel when visitor come.

She really was reborn in the shelter and we hope with all our heart to find somebody special for her.

We want to thank Doris for being her ”Guardian Angel”!

Orsa

The shyest girl in the gang is 3 years old. We found her and her other 5 brothers and sisters thrown near the Buna Bridge. They were terrified.  Four of them were quickly adopted, while Orsa and her sister Liana remained behind.

Orsa likes to eat her meal separately so you should make an effort to gain her trust. Unfortunately she was affected by Leishmania but with the proper medication for 1 whole month she fully recovered.

Adopting a dog with Leishmania here was impossible due to the high cost of medications and the risk to pass it off to humans. That’s why we encourage sponsoring one or our pets through the “Guardian Angel” Program.

Noela

Noela has been with us since June 2015. She was a sick puppy living near the Train Station in Shkodra. She might have had an accident because of an infected wound in her leg when we found her. This wound had created a fistula. She was medicated and she is doing just fine now.

She already has a sponsor that was touched by her story and we are so thankful to her!

Noela is available for adoption and we hope to get her a forever family.

Lupo

Lupo was very sick when we rescued him that we considered euthanasia. One year ago he had opened wounds all over his body, was shaking from distemper and couldn’t walk. He started to eat little by little and regaining his strength the days passed by.

He was fully recovered within 45 days and since then we tried very hard to place him in a forever home without success.

In our culture it is extremely hard to adopt adult dogs that’s why we are asking anyone who sees this post to consider Lupo. He would be  a great addition to your family!

Lucky

We met Lucky 4 years ago. His skinny and wet body smelled like mange and he had two stinky wounds in his groin. He didn’t walk because he was terrified. His ears had been brutally cut off and he was scared of humans.

At the time, we didn’t have a shelter and we fostered him in a kennel near an abandoned house in Gjuhadol. After being regularly fed and treated he gained confidence in himself and became autonomous to live in the street.

We brought him to the shelter with the first spay/neuter project and here is what he considers his home.

We are looking for a family for Lucky that has a yard which won’t constrain him but gives him the right space to live. If that is not possible we would love to have someone be his “Guardian Angel”.

 

Negra

An adorable, sweet and faithful setter, spayed and vaccinated.

She suffers staying at the shelter because she constantly needs love and attention, especially since she lost all her puppies. She consoles herself by hugging other puppies and sleeping next to them. ?

Please, adopt this magnificent creature.♥️

Rudi

We don’t know the complete story of Rudi but what we do know is that human indifference towards sick dogs leads to this.

Rudi was a poor dog living on Ajasem street. Her life was reduced to casual eating and frustrating skin scratching and itchy wounds. As of April 9, Rudi started a new chapter.

We took her and ran a leishmania test, that turned out positive. We put all our efforts into raising money to get her the medication she needed. Now we are so happy that she is healthy again.

Rudi is looking for a forever family but chances in Albania are zero for cases like her. Help us find her one!
