Out of quarantine, into the socialization camp

There is finally news about our youngest protégé, little Hope. After a felt eternity, her laboratory results have arrived and the suspicion of tuberculosis has not been confirmed. The little one is healthy all around and was finally allowed to leave the quarantine station. A few days ago she was allowed to move to the socialization enclosure, where she will spend the next months or rather years. Here the little one is pepped up and gets to know other fellow sufferers from whom she can hopefully learn. In several months she will hopefully be able to go to the new nursery where she can be prepared for a life in freedom.
We are so happy for little Hope
Of course we will keep you informed about her progress! Thank you for your perseverance and support!

Mistake in our calendar

We were horrified to discover that our calendar contained an error. In the month of December, unfortunately, 2 days were skipped, namely the 16th and 17th of December.

If you want to exchange your calendar for a corrected one, you can of course do so. In this case we ask you to contact us until 28 February by email to our address

We ask you to excuse this mishap.
