Save Our Black Storks

Save Our Black Storks

Welcome to this money pot !Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you!  The juvenile black storks have left home.  Where are they now? The Eagle Club of Estonia has ten years experience of streaming Black Storks' nest life online (since 2007).  An ever-increasing fan club has grown during that time and every year new people join the ranks of observers. Special forums about the webcams are established, where people can share their observations, photos and videos. You may be, or may become a member of this community.Black Storks breed as far from human settlements as possible, therefore, watching them directly without a webcam is almost impossible.  People who watch during the months of egg-lay, incubation, brooding, off-spring hatching, growing and finally fledging - they dream of following these juveniles after the nest life,  when the chicks start to live their independent lives. It is possible to install small transmitters on the almost grown-up chicks while they are still in the nest.  This gives information about their movements after fledging, during their first migration to the south, and further.But, as in nature it is, not all juveniles are strong and clever and lucky enough to survive. This is a rule in nature - stronger individuals may produce their offspring but we never know who is who, in the nest.Therefore, observers need to be ready for bad news as well as good.  Nevertheless, our beloved "kids"  may not be the winners in natural selectionEverybody is able to follow Black Storks' (named Karl and Kati) nest life next season - since the beginning of April 2018 in Karula National Park, Estonia,   (via http://www.looduskalender.ee/n/en)  whether or not you want to support the current funding drive!  To see about the breeding season 2017, you can visit forum site http://www.looduskalender.ee/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=878The Eagle Club of Estonia has an ever-increasing fan club for its nest cameras.  It is possible to use the same tracker method for different species of juveniles leaving our webcam nests in Estonia.  Much depends on the funding capacity. Nowadays there are safe tracking devices developed for majority of bigger bird species. Many young black storks perish on their first migration. If only we had a way to track them, that would give us the information about where and why they perish.  Sometimes, starvation is the cause.  Sometimes, collision with power lines, or they are prey to a predator.  Knowing what the dangers are will help to protect them in the future. Thank you for helping to protect them.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lebensrettende Operation für den lieben Schmusi / Operation costs for Schmusi the cat

Lebensrettende Operation für den lieben Schmusi / Operation costs for Schmusi the cat

Hilfe für Schmusi! Help For Schmusi! De l'aide pour Schmusi! English version belowVersion française ci-dessous Schmusi ist ein Liebevoller, vertraulicher und verschmuster Kater, der gerne einem folgt und ganz schön frisst.Er gehöhrt der Solawi Zabergaü (Solidarische Landwirtschaft https://solawizabergaeu.com/eine-seite/) und ist unserer neuer Hofkater, er ist erst 10 Monate alt und er hilft gerne die Ernte von den Maüsern zu beschützen und ist bereits der Liebling aller.Am Donnerstag kam er nach dem Sturm Friederike schwer verletzt nach Hause. Da der arme Kater so geleidet hat und nicht mehr laufen konnte, haben wir Ihn zum Tierarzt gebracht, der nach röntgen und Untersuchungen fest stellte, dass Schmusis Hüfte und der linke Oberschenkelknochen gebrochen waren.Er überwies uns in eine Tierklinik, da der Bruch definitiv operative Behandlung benötigte. Ohne Operartion hätte es Schmusi nicht geschafft. Mit einer Operation hatte er aber sehr gute Chancen wieder Mäuse zu fangen.Schmusi wurde am Freitag sofort operiert und durfte am Samstag wieder nach Hause.Ihm geht es jetzt gut, er hat die Operation ganz tapfer überstanden, schläft sehr viel und hat wieder angefangen sich fest zu ernähren.Wir werden uns bis zu seiner vollständigen Genesung liebevoll um ihn kümmern - doch sprengen die Tierarztkosten unser derzeitiges Budget:Die Kosten belaufen sich auf über 1457,99 €. Solawi ist ein relativ neues Projekt, dass seit drei Jahren existiert. Dieser Betrag repräsentiert eine enorme Summe für uns.Wir würden uns daher sehr freuen, wenn sich auf diesem Weg Tierfreunde finden würden, die sich an diesen Kosten beteiligen. Jeder Euro hilft. Wir bedanken uns im vorhinein ganz toll für ihrer Interesse an Schmusis Gesundheit. Help for Schmusi! Schmusi is a loving, social and cuddly cat, who loves following people around and who eats a lot.He belongs to Solawi Zabergaü (Community-supported agriculture https://solawizabergaeu.com/eine-seite/) and he is our new farm cat. He is only 10 months old and he likes to help to protect the harvest from mice. He is already the favorite of the place.On Thursday, Schmusi came back home after the storm Friederike badly injured. The poor cat was so much in pain that we brought him straight to the veterinarian. After having an X-ray done and after examination, the vet’s diagnostic was that Schmusi broke his hip and his upper back left bone.The vet transferred us to a pet clinic to get Schmusi operated, he could not have survived without operation. On the other hand, he had good chances to get a successful surgery.Schmusi got operated on Friday and got out of the clinic on Saturday.He is now home, he got through the operation fine and is quietly recovering. He also started to eat with a sturdy appetite again.We will take good and loving care of him until he is fully recovered, but the veterinary costs are blowing our budget : the costs of the operation are 1457,99€. Solawi is a new project, started 3 years ago. It is a huge amount for us.We would be very happy, if through leetchi we can find some animal friends who would like to help us with the costs. Every euro counts.Thank you so much in advance for reading this and caring about Schmusi. De l'aide pour Schmusi! Schmusi est un chat affectueux, sociable et câlin, qui adore suivre les gens et qui mange beaucoup.Il appartient à Solawi Zabergaü (un couple de maraîchers paysans en  biodynamie en Bade-Württemberg https://solawizabergaeu.com/eine-seite/) et c’est le nouveau chat de la ferme. Il n’a que dix mois et il adore chasser les souris qui mettent en danger certaines récoltes. C’est déjà le petit préféré de tous.Jeudi, après la tempête Friederike, Schmusi est rentré gravement blessé. Le pauvre chat souffrait tellement que nous l’avons directement amené chez le vétérinaire. Après avoir fait des radios et après avoir été examiné, le diagnostic était une fracture du bassin et de l’os de la jambe arrière gauche.Le vétérinaire nous a orientés vers une clinique pour qu’

Βοήθεια σε ζώα στην Ελλάδα  * Ζω στην Ελλάδα από το 1979 και όλα αυτά τα χρόνια φροντίζω τα ζώα με όποιο τρόπο μπορώ: προσφέροντας βοήθεια στη στείρωση γατιών και σκυλιών, υιοθετώντας ή βρίσκοντας οικογένειες για σκύλους, ταΐζοντας αδέσποτα σκυλιά και γατιά, τόσο στην Αθήνα όσο και στο νησί της Άνδρου που μένω τα τελευαταία χρόνια.Πριν δέκα χρόνια, κληρονόμησα κάποια χρήματα από τη μητέρα μου και με τα χρήματα αυτά αγόρασα ένα σπίτι στην Άνδρο, σε ένα απομακρυσμένο ορεινό χωριό του νησιού. Ένας από τους λόγους που επέλεξα τη συγκεκριμένη τοποθεσία ήταν ώστε να μπορώ να έχω ζώα χωρίς να ενοχλούνται οι περίοικοι από την παρουσία τους, κάτι που θα ήταν επικίνδυνο για τα ίδια τα ζώα, καθώς η δηλητηρίαση ζώων είναι συχνό φαινόμενο Ελλάδα. Το σπίτι μου βρίσκεται στις πλαγιές του μεγαλύτερου βουνού της Άνδρου και ο πιο κοντινός μου γείτονας τους  χειμερινούς μήνες βρίσκεται σε απόσταση 1 χιλιομέτρου. Το καλοκαίρι κατοικούνται κάποια κοντινότερα σπίτια, αλλά και πάλι βρίσκονται σε ασφαλή απόσταση.Έχοντας στην κατοχή μου μία μεγάλη έκταση γης, αποφάσισα να δώσω σπίτι και φροντίδα σε όσα περισσότερα εγκαταλελειμμένα ζώα μπορούσα, φιλοξενώντας σε μόνιμη βάση ως τώρα: 20 σκύλους, 25 γάτες, ένα άλογο, ένα γαϊδούρι και ένα μουλάρι. * Πριν από 12 ημέρες (την Κυριακή 7 Ιανουαρίου), ένας άνδρας από ένα γειτονικό χωριό (περίπου 12 χλμ μακριά), φόρτωσε μία ολόκληρη οικογένεια σκύλων στο αυτοκίνητό του, έναν αρσενικό σκύλο, ένα θυληκό σκύλο και τα 7 κουτάβια τους, οδήγησε ως το σπίτι μου και τα πέταξε όλα στο δρόμο με προφανή πρόθεση να τα «εγκαταλείψει» πάνω μου. Στη βιασύνη του για να μην τον δουν, πάτησε και σκότωσε  με το αυτοκίνητο το ένα κουτάβι.  Από την πτώση, ένα δεύτερο κουτάβι σκοτώθηκε, ένα τρίτο έσπασε το σαγόνι του και η κτηνίατρος που τα εξέτασε διαπίστωσε ότι άλλα δύο κουτάβια είχαν προϋπάρχοντες τραυματισμούς (αρκετών ημερών) στα πόδια τους. Τα χωριά ωστόσο έχουν "μάτια και αυτιά", με άλλα λόγια δεν μπορεί κάποιος να κάνει πολλά περνώντας απαρατήρητος σε ένα χωριό. Έτσι έγινε και με το συγκεκριμένο περιστατικό, πολλοί είδαν το αυτοκίνητο αυτού του ανθρώπου να περνάει από το χωριό, το μεσημέρι της Κυριακής. Η αντιπαράθεση μας μαζί του είναι μια άλλη ιστορία, αλλά αρκεί να πούμε ότι δεν θέλαμε να του επιστρέψουμε τα σκυλιά, φοβούμενοι ότι απλώς θα τα πετάξει κάπου αλλού. Έτσι λοιπόν, έχουμε πλέον βρεθεί με άλλα 7 στόματα να θρέψουμε, κάτι ιδιαίτερα δύσκολο σε μια ήδη δύσκολη οικονομική κατάσταση.Το κέντρο χρηματοδοτείται αυτή τη στιγμή με την εκμίσθωση δύο ακινήτων μέσω του airbnb και εγώ έχω την ευθύνη και διαχείριση του, με τη βοήθεια εθελοντών από μία ιστοσελίδα που ονομάζεται workaway.info. Οι εθελοντές προέρχονται από όλο τον κόσμο και ειδικά εν μέσω των τελευταίων αυτών γεγονότων που κληθήκαμε να αντιμετωπίσουμε -με τα κουτάβια και τους γονείς τους- η συμβολή τους ήταν εξαιρετικά σημαντική.Αν υπάρχει κάποιος που αισθάνεται ότι θα ήθελε να κάνει μια δωρεά για να μας βοηθήσει να αντεπεξέλθουμε σε αυτό το δύσκολο χειμώνα και να φροντίσουμε τα επτά αυτά σκυλιά, να καλύψουμε τα έξοδα για τη διατροφή τους, τους εμβολιασμούς τους, την αποπαρασίτωσή τους, κλπ, παρακαλούμε επικοινωνήστε μαζί μας. Στην Ελλάδα η εξεύρεση σπιτιών για σκύλους είναι εξαιρετικά δύσκολη, καθώς υπάρχουν ήδη χιλιάδες αδέσποτα ζώα. Επιπλέον, η οικονομική κρίση στην Ελλάδα έχει καταστήσει ακόμα πιο δύσκολη την υιοθεσία σκύλων. Κάθε συνεισφορά, ανεξαρτήτως ποσού, έχει πολύ μεγάλη αξία για εμάς.  Σας ευχαριστούμε θερμά εκ των προτέρων. ή αγοράζοντας τις κάρτες και τα βιβλία μας από εδώ  https://www.etsy.com/shop/MagicMountainShopΗ σελίδα μας στο facebook είναι εδώhttps://www.facebook.com/Animal-rescue-Andros-Greece-1243272685803628/  HELPING ANIMALS IN ANDROS - GREECE  * I have lived in Greece since 1979 and all of that time I have helped animals whenever I could.

Homeless person and dog El Camino 3600km walked after

Homeless person and dog El Camino 3600km walked after

Welcome to this money pot !Me and my lovely Vizsla -hunter dog girl- lost everything. I was forced to give up my hotel receptionist job in my home country, Hungary.So on the 17th of May 2017 we started to walk on the 3600 km long European El Camino way. After Hungary we walked across Austria, Switzerland, France and Spain, all the way to the ocean, where we walked to Muxia and Finisterra.I am homeless now, but I don’t want to give up! Never!I would like to start a very nice new life, but unfortunately I am unable to do so alone. I would like to buy an old house somewhere along the Camino, renovate it and turn it into an Albergue/Gite. It would be a DONATIVO place, a dog-friendly one of course. It would help people with difficulties and/or in crisis along the way. Because I know that there are a lot of people along the way who need help. Many homeless young people.My dream is a farm with a big garden where I can grow my own vegetables and would be able to keep some animals too. And if other homeless people feel like, they would have the option of living with me on this farm, helping me. Because other than that these people without motivation often would just drink too much and end up dying much too early.I could help them if you help me. So, if you like my dream, and you can help me, do so please, and I will be very thankful to you.If you happen to have a place where me and my dog could live until my dream comes true, I would help you in the household as much as I can in exchange.Thank you so much!Krisztina and dog named Bodza, from France right now!

U.B.C (Urban Bee Collectiva) needs your help !

(English version below) Bonjour à tous !    Je m'appelle Manolis, je suis apiculteur et je vis en Grèce dans une ville du nom d'Amfissa.    J'ai créé ce pot commun car j'ai besoin de votre aide pour mon projet d'apiculture. Notre planète a besoin d'abeilles pour survivre: elles sont les exportatrices naturelles du pollen qui aide à la reproduction des plantes. Mais les abeilles sont maintenant en danger d'extinction et cette menace est de plus en plus évidente aujourd'hui.     Passionné par les abeilles depuis des années, j'ai commencé ce projet d'apiculture il y a 4 ans et ce dans le respect de l'animal, ce qui veut dire sans produits chimiques.A l'heure actuelle, je dispose de 21 ruches et cette petite entreprise a besoin de votre aide pour continuer à survivre. L'apiculture est un domaine qui demande un important apport d'argent: une ruche (sans les abeilles) coûte 70E.    Pour aller plus loin dans ce projet et pour pouvoir vivre de ma productio  vn, je dois encore acheter beaucoup d'autres ruchers. Par exemple, le montant de cette cagnotte me permettrait d'acheter 100 ruchers (sans compter les frais de maintenance, du materiel...) alors que pour vivre de ma production de miel, je dois me munir d'environ 300 ruches. C'est pourquoi toutes les donations sont les bienvenues !Merci beaucoup pour votre soutien. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________   Welcome everybody !       My name is Manolis, I am beekeeper and I live in Greece in a town called Amfissa.     I created this money pot because I need your help for my bee keeping project.Our planet needs bees to survive, they are the natural exporters of pollen to help the reproduction of plants.

Și, printre altele, deține un spațiu unde functionează un centru de ecarisaj. Plati se pot face si prin Paypal: Lianaaurora@yahoo.com Un centru de Ecarisaj NU este un adapost. Diferenta majora este ca la Ecarisajul Citadin cateii prinsi sunt eutanasiati dupa un anumit nr de zile.Insa, acesti catei pot fi salvati doar prin ADOPTIE. ORAR adoptii: in intervalul 8 -9.30 dimineata, doar in zilele de luni, marti, miercuri si vineri.Așa că, avem nevoie de MULT ajutor. In primul rând de voluntari sufletiști, pentru ca împreună să salvam acesti catei, sa-i promovam, sa le asigurăm condiții optime de trai, și, de ce nu, să le găsim un stăpân.Willkommen in diesem Geldtopf! Klicken Sie, um einen Beitrag zu leisten.    Geben Sie soviel Sie wollen.    Alle Zahlungen sind sicher. Vielen Dank!Wir haben uns hier versammelt, um eine gemeinsame Stimme zu bilden, durch die wir die Straßenhunden aus Zalau, Rumänien retten und fördern wollen. .. Zalaus Rathaus, die lokale Behörde, die das Problem der streunenden Hunde löst, hat diese Dienstleistungen an die Citadin Company ausgelagert, die in erster Linie ein Unternehmen ist, das sich mit sanitären Anlagen und der Instandhaltung von Straßen beschäftigt. Und unter anderem haben sie einen Platz, wo es einen sogenannten Hundehütte gibt. Aber ist eigentlich ein KILL SHELTER.Die Hunde werden nach einigen Tagen getötet, manche am selben Tag. Die EINZIGE Lösung, um sie zu speichern, ist ADOPTION.Sie können früh morgens in das Tierheim gehen - zwischen 8.00 und 9.30 Uhr.Nur am Montag / Dienstag / Mittwoch und Freitag.Also, wir brauchen viel Hilfe. Zunächst würden wir Freiwillige brauchen, um gemeinsam die Hunde zu fördern, um optimale Lebensbedingungen zu bieten und warum nicht, um sie als Besitzer zu finden.Paypal: Lianaaurora@yahoo.comWelcome to this money pot !Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secureThank you! We have gathered here, to form a common voice through which we want to save and promote the stray dogs in Zalau.Zalau’s City Hall, the local authority managing the stray dogs problem, has outsourced these services to the Citadin Company, which is primarily a company dealing with sanitation and street maintenance. And among other things, they have a space where there is a so-called dog shelter. But is actually is a KILL SHELTER. The dogs are killed after a numbers of days, some on the same day. The ONLY solution to save them is ADOPTION.You can go at the shelter early in the morning - between 8.-9.30 am.

The Ananda Elephant Sanctuary

The Ananda Elephant Sanctuary

We (also known as the elephant Freedom Project) are situated in Sri Lanka and are trying to improve the life of captive elephants. As animal lovers we didn't like witnessing the hardship we were seeing; day in, day out the same suffering and nothing we could do about it. We strive to create an environment without the usual abuse and hardship that goes on so often. We started thinking, what if we could create a place where the elephants don’t have to work? What if we could start a project where the elephants are free from being ridden and being a tourist attraction? What if we can have a place where they are happy, walk around freely, drink when they want, can play, get excellent care and all the love we can give? These are our goals. We are still a very young project, only opening in October 2013, and are very determined towards change and with your help we are slowly -but steadily- getting there! We currently care for two beautiful elephants called Manika and Seetha. Manika was our first elephant with Seetha joining her in July 2015. We are the only place in Sri Lanka that tries to improve the lives of privately owned elephants without offering rides or any other elephant entertainment. Buying an elephant is almost impossible. Most elephant owners are very rich and care about the status an elephant gives them and their family - they won't consider to sell or give away their prized possession. This means that we are forced to rent them in order to give them a life most elephants could only dream of and ensure she doesn’t end up at a riding place or another bad environment. The Ananda Elephant Sanctuary is the alternative to all these places. To find out more about our work visit our website: http://www.anandaelephantsanctuary.com/index.html or like our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/anandaelephantsanctuary/ * For the next stage of our exciting project we want to move into a larger site where we can hopefully give sanctuary to even more elephants. Our dream in for the sanctuary is for a semi-wild area but where they have all of the amenities they could possibly need: protective walls, a water tank, fruit trees, and enough space for them to roam freely.* Each Elephant has a keeper specific to them, they are called Manhouts. We would love to build accommodation for them next to the elephants so that they care easily care for them whenever the elephants need them.* In addition we would have a full time doctor, this means that the elephants would not have to leave the sanctuary in order to get medical treatment reducing the stress of being separated from the herd and the transport. When the doctor is not tending to our elephants we would use him to treat elephants at riding centers where they poorly attend the medical needs of their elephants.* Our current site wold not go to waste though. We would convert it into an eco-garden where we would grow vegetables and fruit for volunteers to pick and feed to the elephants.* We hope to buy a van also to transport volunteers to and from the new site easily. All of these changes would make us self-sufficient saving us money to continually reinvest back into our project. We really hope that you appreciate our cause make make a small donation. Every contribution helps rescue these beautiful animals.

Hots Rescue Charitable Organisation

From humble beginnings, Hots Dobermann Rescue is growing into a prominent respected caring rescue organisation.  We have over 35 years experience nurturing and rehoming wonderful dogs.  We specialise in the Dobermann breed but we'll always do our utmost to help any dog in need and that we can help.  Our future lies in the same place that it all began, with caring individuals who want to make this a kinder world for our pets.  It's people like you who started it all and people like you who will help us care for so many dogs in need.Over the past twelve months, we have been very successful in rescuing and rehoming nearly 50 dogs.  All of these dogs that come into the Hots family are initially checked by our local Vets (The Vet Centre in Maids Moreton, Buckinghamshire) and will not leave our care until they have a clean bill of health.  Sadly, a large percentage of these animals come to us in very poor condition and even though we receive a welcomed discount because of our rescue status the costs are amassing at an alarming rate.  Through many various Fundraising events and generous donations, we have successfully paid a percentage of our Vet bill but we still have an outstanding debt of over £1,500 vet fees that need to be paid.  We realise that Christmas will be here in less than a week and money is tight for most, but any donation no matter how small will be gladly received and go towards helping the many dogs that come to us.We have included a video of the wonderful dogs that we have had the pleasure to assist in finding a much needed better life.  Please visit our website to find out more about what we do and the dogs we care for or visit our facebook page to follow our activities  Can you help?Please click to make a contribution.Give however much you want, every donation will help towards saving another four legged life!All payments are secureThank you!
