Some of Sava’s residents have lived at the shelter for over 6 years. These dogs have never been outside shelter in all those years – this NEW PLAYGROUND is for them.
Sava’s aim is to create a little “doggy park” just outside the shelter perimeter, so all traumatised animals and all shelter residents can play and enjoy this huge space and enjoy some much needed freedom to run & be free! This is a great project to help socialise animals, making them easier to rehome. We also hope the playground will make it easier for people to visit the shelter, play with dogs, in an effort to increase the adoption rate of these Romanian dogs.
In past 3 years Savas focused on spay/neutering programs, but in 2019 they are focusing mostly on improving their shelter conditions to encourage more visitors and hopefully more adoptions. This project commenced because of the falling rate of adoptions, which in turn means sadly they can rescue fewer animals.
Shelter will be protected all day and night, not only by the surveillance cameras and alarm, but by a guardian.
Sava's Safe Haven managed to purchase a guardian's cabin that will be placed next to principal door so the shelter is guarded during the night time hours. Some years ago the shelter was broken into during the night and gates stolen, so a night security is much needed and available in future.
Friendly with nature!
All security cameras, alarms and lights are solar-powered.
More than this in autumn season Sava's Safe Haven plan to plant dozens of trees in the playground to have a natural place for our animals.
Please continue to follow our projects and help us so in future we will be able to make much more for our animals and community.
