Typical day

A day at the shelter typically starts with cleaning and feeding the dogs which is done by our local staff, but volunteers are happy to join. The dogs will be let out of their compartments so it is easier to clean and the volunteer gets to socialise with the dogs, take pictures and video of them. If one of the dogs is adopted the volunteer gets the special task to train collar wearing, leash walking and and with them, so they are prepared for their life in their new homes. If we have puppies it is really important to socialise with them. So lots of interaction with dogs all day long.

EUROPE’S FIRST STRAY DOG PARK
The Dog Rose is an innovative animal rescue, rehabilitation and education center featuring a recreational park, vegetarian café, meditation pavilion,
tourist accommodation for our volunteers and a school education garden. Over several hectares, a sustainable green paradise for stray dogs to relax and interact with visitors is being built, alongside an education center for children to learn the importance of animal welfare, plus a place for teenagers and adults to spend profound volunteering vacations, as they assist in caring for our dogs. Visiting the organic vegetarian café will be another great reason to spend the full day at the Dog Rose. Even though most people love animals,they usually avoid animal shelters and
instead pay to visit zoos and go on safaris.This made us think: how could we create a shelter that people love to visit?

SPACE
By building a rescue garden that has open, landscaped, abundant space, we seem frightened or seemingly aggressive dogs become happy, balanced and friendly pets - ready to be adopted. By their nature, dogs are unconditionally loving creatures. However, the effect of ill treatment
sometimes breaks this trust. Thankfully, this can be brought back with kindness and care. Through education, our visitors learn about the
potential of a loving, respectful bond between dogs and humans. We aim to change any negative beliefs and perceptions that often lead to the dysfunctional cycle of mistreatment, abuse and neglect. Our visitors can experience for themselves that dogs are as meaningful to us, as we are to them.
