Dogs in the shelter

Many dogs are abandoned by locals, some are stray dogs born in the streets. The shelter is a hard place for a dog who used to live in a home and get regular walks or run free in the forest with their owner - so we try to make the transition as easy as possible, by giving extra attention and placing them in the best possible way. 

Our dogs are living in the shelter in two different ways. Most of the dogs are living in kennels alone or with few other dogs. Some of the dogs are located in dog houses next to our central square, where our resting place is. We try to give each dog an opportunity to spend time near us, so dogs are circulating between kennels and dog houses.

We have volunteers working at the shelter weekly and one of them is a certified dog trainer from Finland. She works with the dogs and evaluates them, so we know what kind of place is the best for them. The trainer is also happy to help anyone who has adopted a dog from the shelter, providing free consultation. 

We are especially proud of the certificate awarded to the owner of the shelter in September 2015 by the Mayor of the Municipality.
