Sandy’s story began on November 28, 2017 when she was found on the promenade at Shiroke Lake! She was about four weeks old, sitting on the sidewalk shaking like a leaf, with a cut on her head, her skin flaking and odorous, with apparent malnutrition to the point of death. She weighed about 1kg. It was a cold and windy day and one of our caring friends picked her up and took her to our veterinarian. She was checked over and administered the first of three rounds of injections for her skin disease.
The next three would come once every 20 days. She was taken home by the foster lady who found her, nourished and over the next three months her condition improved immensely. She has now been given all her vaccinations and is on the way to becoming a beautiful dog, full of energy and a newfound lease on life.
She is about 4-5 months old, weighs 4.3kg and her fur is soft, shiny and full! She loves taking a bath, being pampered and playing. She’s still teething but has a handle on it, most times. The time has come for her to find her forever home.
She would be most adaptable in a home with a yard and parents with a firm understanding of dog behavior and experience with training, as she is still a puppy and needs to be directed in a clear and concise manner. If you fall in love with Sandy and are outside Albania we can provide you with all the assistance necessary to make the adoption easy and transportation to your home country a breeze, so don’t let that stop you! If you are in Albania and are interested in Sandy contact us to schedule a visit!
Sweet Layla was found by a teenager animal lover in the city of Lezha. She is blind and was lying hidden in a corner of the street. We were touched by her condition and we welcomed her into the shelter. At first she was shy and not confident in the new environment, but now she plays joyfully with her friends and she is such a sweetie. Layla is a small sized dog and we hope with all our heart that she could find a family who would accept her for what she is. Adopt Layla or be her Guardian Angel!
Effi was one of the puppies who entered the shelter with the hope of being adopted and receive a better life.
But until now we have not had any requests for him, even though he is such a handsome boy.
Effi is a medium-big dog that needs to receive the attentions of a true family. A home with a garden would be perfect for him.
Adopt Effi! Don’t let him live in a shelter cage forever!
Dodo came into our shelter for the neuter campaign.
He had a collar so tight around his neck and the left-over of a rope which was used to tie him with.
We assume that he was abandoned from the village areas.
He was so skinny that we decided not to release him to the streets anymore.
He is gentle, calm and waits patiently for his meal. He really deserves to be taken care of by a loving family.
Give Dodo a chance!
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 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!
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 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!
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”!
Kercimtarja in English means Dancer. Three years ago we found her in the middle of the street, unable to move. We surely thought she was hit by a car and immediately called the vet.
We learned she had distempter and was successfully treated, although she still has minor tremors. In spite of it all she is super healthy. Kercimtarja is 7 years old and we believe she never had a family. She likes to be free, take walks and of course, good food. 🙂
She is looking for a forever family or a “Guardian Angel”.
Please consider being a sponsor for our Dancer!
Juna is 3 years old. She was a sick puppy with mange, living in very bad conditions in the street. One of the volunteers took very good care of her until she became this wonderful lady that she is today. Juna is playful and full of energy. She is ideal for families with children or people with an active life. Our dream is for her to find a very good forever home!
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”.
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.♥️
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!
