Through various campaigns and online auctions, Friends of Animals VT Foundation raises funds for stray cats and dogs in the city and the region. However, the need to find volunteers as foster families for injured animals is most urgent at the moment.

By the end of spring, the Veliko Tarnovo village Balvan will have a special site for cycling thanks to the initiative of Donation Association “St. Ivan Rilski “. This will be the third playground in the village that will serve the needs of all local children as well as the children from 20 neighbouring villages.
The Christmas Market in Veliko Tarnovo officially opens on 1st December; it will work from 10 am till 8 pm and will feature 25 chalets offering various goods. One of them will be called the Charity Chalet of Friends of Animals VT and will be raising funds for a noble cause – the wellbeing of stray and mistreated animals. The good-hearted people behind the organization are setting up their chalet at the Christmas Market for a second year in a row. There you can donate money for the stray animals of Veliko Tarnovo. The raised funds will cover the medical costs for neutering, treatment and medication of homeless animals. You can also donate blankets, bedding, toys and food for the dogs in the Municipality Animal Shelter. Alternatively you can buy cat/dog food or anything you deem necessary from any of the veterinary clinics or zoo shops in VT and just let the people from the chalet know so that they can go and collected it instead of you carrying it around.
For each donation you will receive a small gift of gratitude. The gifts include calendars with pictures of the dogs from the shelter, fridge magnets with cats, souvenirs and Christmas baubles. The Charity Chalet is the first on the left-hand side if you are coming from the direction of the ferry wheel.
The campaign last year was very successful thanks to all the compassionate and generous people who made a donation – 35 stray cats were neutered, 108 vaccines were bought for the needs of the Municipality Pound and the medical costs for the treatment of more than 40 stray animals were covered.
This noble cause wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for Friends of Animals VT kind-hearted friends at Yantra Homes Real Estate Agency who became the exclusive sponsor of the Charity Chalet and its activity.
