companion animals

Life with a pet is a wonderful thing. Cats, dogs and small mammals are our family members, friends and companions. Every animal is an individual and therefore has its own needs.

Sadly, not all companion animals enjoy the luxury of having a loving home. Stray animals live in many countries around the world. We aim to help these animals by taking a humane and sustainable approach and to end the suffering they go through.
