Prishtina Dog Shelter is a local grassroots’ non-governmental organization which for many years now with its hard work and dedication has established itself as one of the best organizations of stray dogs in Kosovo. We are very proud of their achievements since working purely and voluntarily with small support from citizens of good will and animal lovers from all over the world. Everyday they manage to go out in streets to look out for dogs who are in danger or/and with serious health issues to bring them to the dog shelter where they try to heal them and give them love.
Prishtina Dog Shelter has its own shelter which is based in the municipality of Gracanica (Kosovo), where in any moment up to 60 stray dogs are regularly feed and treated in accordance with European standards for treatment of stray dogs; CNVR Approach (Catch, Neuter, Vaccinate and Release or Adopt). This approach is recognized as the only way to humanely treat the issue of stray dogs.
They have 4 workers who daily work in the shelter. Their work is mainly voluntarily since it all depends from amount of daily small sums of money which animal lovers bring in the shelter or donation or sponsorship.
Biggest percentage of amount collected goes for covering daily expenses (food for dogs, gasoline, and payment for veterinaries for neuter and vaccination) and very small amount for payment of salaries for the staff. Please see dog shelter instagram for more photos link.
All their hard work and love for stray dogs depends on us.
