No Hope For Paws Until Woman Rescues 400 Dogs In Russia Before Fifa World Cup
While protesters attempt to implore the Russian government not to fund the killing of homeless and stray dogs in 2018 Fifa World Cup Russia host cities prior to the world cup matches, the World Animal Awareness Society has been building relationships with rescuers working the problem first hand by rescuing and sheltering as many dogs as they can off the street.
Elena Kalyuzhina, founder of Bertha Dog Rescue just 20 km north east of Moscow is one such person.
World Animal Awareness Society & WA2S Films Executive Director Tom McPhee reached an agreement to partner with Bertha Dog Rescue through an interpreter. The agreement gives the WA2S access to help tell the story of Bertha Rescue Moscow, and the dogs under the care of Elena.
Here's a little of what Elena shared with us about Bertha Rescue:
"I want to introduce my dogs in the shelter. Our shelter is called Bertha Dog Rescue.
We have 400 dogs there , each dog has come here with own problem: whether it was thrown away by the owner, or got under the car, or it was affected or injured or little puppies were found and needed a cure and help. We want to make them all survive.
We experience a lack of people/volunteer in our shelter. We have only 2 volunteers, who come not very often but help us greatly. It's very hard to cope with such a huge crowd of dogs here by means of only 3 persons including me. We have no nutural gas, no water supply system, no electricity in the shelter. So , we are forced to bring water in big cans far away from shelter, asking people to help with the car or hire the car (we do not have our own care there too).
Each day we need about 500 ltr of fresh water to feed the dogs and clean. Also we experience a lack of food, medicine, materials to build new cages.
All cages are full of dogs (20 dogs per cage) at the moment. Because of each dog has his own character, some dogs don't get along with each other, that's why we need more cages to reduce the quantity of dogs per each cage.
Let me introduce These two. They are Rey and Grey. They got in shelter when they were blind puppies from the forest. Now they are big ones! Can you imagine our love, do you see it!?
So,if someone wants to obtain a good friend please contact us and we will choose the best one for you!
Let's take an opportunity, meet and share our happiness!
