Different Approach to Animal Shelter Pays Off Big in Germany

Have you walked into an animal shelter lately? If so how was it? How did the animals look and maybe what could they be feeling? Animals in shelters are usually locked in a cage and although they have space to move, they are still stuck in one place. You can only imagine what that can do to a person let alone an adorable animal.

So why not take a different approach, like Germany did? Tierheim( Animal House )is an all green, private, animal shelter in Germany. They take a different approach to typical shelters and it is seriously paying off. They handle over 10,000 animals 9yes, that is correct) annually and “the adoption rate goes far beyond 90% !! “

“Tierheim is well staffed with two or three times the number of volunteers as permanent staff look out the animals, and there are a number of permanent veterinarians and nurses at each shelter.”

The cat house makes an amazing environment for cats to socialize and play together, while in a bright room filled with windows for sunshine and air. Up to 3 cats in each room allows them enough space to play with their dolls, climb on their towers and even take sleeps. On each door each room are introductory cards that will have the name, painting, date of birth, medical history, and reason for sheltering. Seems normal right? Well how about the reason for sheltering? Ever seen one of those! “How much more willing would people be to adopt animals after ensure them in a clean environment and reading their tales? “

“Tierheim facilities stand out with a view to providing healthy pleasant spaces for the animals they house. The dog kennels are individual rooms and the dogs are able to move freely about in and out of their rooms and have a stroll outside.”

Thinking about adopting?

Adoption is not that long of a process around the world. But sometimes it should be! Tierheim’s process for adoption isn’t as simple as just wanting to come in and adopt a pet. Many come to adopt but not all of them can; those who want to adopt must got through many questions about( and satisfy specific criteria for) household composition, housing, and working hours … these are only some stringent qualifications…
