Dog organization Georgia

Bona was living a relatively safe life in Kutaisi, neutered, vaccinated and tagged by the local municipality. However, as a gentle and timid dog, she could not establish herself as a dominant member of the pack that she lived with, so her struggle for food and other resources was continuous. While she was not in direct danger, she was painfully thin when she was spotted by a kind tourist, Renida, who decided that she would help Bona, no matter what.
Renida contacted us and asked our help. We agreed to provide a place for Bona
As she was far from Tbilisi, we were not very hopeful about finding a quick transport option for her, but she was lucky again – a couple who adopted a dog from us was just planning their visit to Georgia, arriving at Kutaisi airport and they immediately offered to look for Bona and transported her to our shelter from Kutaisi.
When Bona arrived at us, we were expecting her to stay only for a few months and then fly to Renida. But just as she got ready to travel, all international flights to and from Georgia were banned, and Bona was again in an uncertain situation. But one thing never changed even during these uncertain times – Renida’s commitment to this wonderful dog.
And now, 10 months after Bona first met her rescuer, they finally got reunited thanks to a wonderful flight volunteer who managed to get Bona to Riga a few weeks ago!

Success Story – NINI
Nini was found as a tiny puppy in the streets of Tbilisi. A very kind person picked her up to try to find a home for her as Nini would not have made it in the streets on her own, and she asked us for help.
As soon as we posted about Boo (now Nini), our super volunteer and experienced foster mum Manuela, offered to foster Nini until she would be vaccinated.
But as things go, Manuela fell completely in love with Nini and after a few days together, she decided to officially adopt her.
Now Nini and Manuela travel together around Georgia and they still visit us at the shelter to take a walk with our lovely pooches!

Amazing 🐶🥰

We all Love happy endings

So cute!

Some of our best success stories are foster fails.
This week Coska found a home! Well, truth be told, he found it several months ago, exactly when he sashayed into the home of his amazing foster mum for the first time. He probably knew it all along what the foster mum only admitted this week – they could never live without each other again!Coska was living in Vake Park, guarding his own little territory, with kind humans caring for him.
It all seemed good when DOG TVNR-d (tagged, neutered, vaccinated & released) him back to the park, however, not long after that he was hit by a car and he had to move back to the shelter in 2016. His pelvis was broken and he could hardly move.
But he has always remained positive, even when most of us would have given up – at the beginning all he could do was to crawl out from his room to the fresh air, to be with volunteers and other dogs. But gradually he started getting stronger.
While he will never move as before, he is now just as fast as if he had four perfect legs.
He loved bossing everyone around at the shelter, his small size and physical challenges did not stop him in thinking he was the strongest and the bravest of all.
He was adored by every volunteer, but somehow that dream family we thought he could make so happy, never turned up.
Although our organizations, as most others, have suffered greatly during the lock down and due to the restrictions that are still in place, there are some positive stories coming out of this situation.
Just like Coska’s. At the beginning of the lock down period, we were approached by Olivia, who offered to foster a dog while she was anyway stuck here and mostly in her flat, and her choice was Coska.
She has been fostering this gentleman for several months now, and this week she made the decision to adopt him.
We could not possibly wish a better home for Coska – he has a doggy sibling already waiting for him in the United States where he will be flying together with Olivia later this year.

We wish both of you every happiness in the world!

Dog organization Georgia

This elegant and deer like young dog was living together with her siblings by a truck stop near Gori. Their brother, Georgie was found by actors Juliana and Seamus Dever who quickly launched a campaign to find a home for Georgie and he traveled to California to his dream home last summer (for more on Georgie´s story, please watch this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vNNbBJHodA&t=18s )

When we learnt that Georgie had more siblings, Seamus and Juliana initiated a fundraiser, and the funds received from that allowed us to go and collect and help the others as well. We started their neutering and vaccination procedure and advertised them. Goldie was the only one left by August, but soon after that she was spotted by Alina and Sebastian who were volunteering at the shelter. They offered to foster her, but unfortunately their rental agreement excluded the option of owning a dog in the property they were living in at the time, so after the fostering period, Goldie had to return to us.
She was a favourite with many visitors and soon enough she found a foster home again – the lovely Vazha and his wife opened up their home for Goldie, who spent the entire lock down period with them.
They were amazing in caring for her, teaching her all that she needed to learn about living in a city.
But during all this time, Alina always inquired about her, followed her story and never gave up the chance of perhaps one day adopting Goldie.
And guess who was the first one to move in with Alina and Sebastian once they changed apartment?

This long legged antelope dog has finally reached her forever home and is exactly where she is supposed to be – at home with her family.
