Welcome to Svilos!
Here, in the middle of the hilly greenery, lays the wonderful animal shelter, supported by Animal Care Austria.
On the welcoming committee:
They both will come to greet you as you enter the shelter territory, with wagging tails and requests for belly rubs, but each on her "own" territory, as each is a queen of her own kingdom :D
Rudi will jump on the roof at your arrival, looking forward to say hello!
Can you believe that he's already 8 years old?
The Svilos dogs are quite the olympic jumpers I must say and they all are happy to demonstrate their talent!
Like Nina for instance, who I personally call "Rocket" ;D
Let's go inside and greet everyone!
And let's get some cuddles while we're at it!
But we're not only here to have fun, there's always loads of work to be done!
And here was my work station:
Where the dogs each got their turn to run around freely
and become pro-models for a day :D
And all of them know where we hide the treats!
(Who is always camera shy)
They are the incredible couple of Animal Care Austria, who are incharge of caring for the Svilos shelter. They drive to Serbia so often, built, fix, construct, plan, help these dogs get their titter tests and get adopted in the EU. Their work is incredible and in the 3 years passed since our first visit there, the shelter has changed drastically and keeps on getting better and better!
Here are Carol & Jakob.
Carol is the head of Animal Care Austria, the one who works around the clock and travel any distance to help shelter dogs in need!
Jakob is our new team member who joined the trip and worked non stop- building, fencing, cutting bushes....
And we also have to meet the wonderful Serbian team who run the shelter on a daily basis and always with a huge smile on their face:
Ljubica - the one and only!, Mira, Nikola, Stefan & Mirko
And as the sun sets on our third day in Svilos
It is time to say goodbye...
But don't worry, it's not for long! We will be back in Svilos next week!! And will return with new experiences and thousands of new photos :D
Thank you for reading and for your support! <3
