English

“Sponsors for healthy dogs Guadi” is a preventive health care programme for dogs in the Portuguese Guadi shelter. This programme is set up to protect the dogs in the shelter against diseases, some of which are hard to cure, chronical or even fatal.

Mediterranean diseases such as leishmania, ehrlichia and filaria (heartworm) are spread by parasites like mosquitoes, ticks and sandflies. Preventive treatment against these parasites means a higher level of protection against these diseases. Click here for more information about Mediterranean diseases (in Dutch).

Furthermore, vaccination is necessary to prevent outbreaks of parvo, canine distemper and rabies in the Guadi shelter. Since the shelter dogs are vaccinated, puppies can also stay in the shelter without risk of getting dangerously ill. (Before, all puppies had to be taken in by local foster families, because staying in the shelter was a serious health risk.)

The local government provides the Guadi shelter with dog food, water and pays the wage for 3 staff members, but it does no contribute to the costs for medical health care or prevention. On average, around 100 dogs live in the shelter. The medical costs in the shelter are very high and have to be paid competely from donations.

That’s why “Sponsors for Healthy Dogs Guadi” was set up. This sponsor-programme enables people to sponsor a dog in the Guadi shelter for a year. The sponsored dog will be fully vaccinated, de-wormed and receives preventive treatment against parasites with Effitix (or Bravecto) and Milpro.

Investing in prevention now avoids high medical costs and ill dogs in the future. Also, puppies can stay in the shelter without their health or lives being at risk. And because the parasitic pressure decreases, the immume systems of the dogs are stronger so they are less susceptible to other health problems too.

With “Sponsors for health dogs Guadi”, the safety and well-being of the dogs in the shelter has increased massively. And because the dogs remain healty, their chance to get adopted to their forever homes is enhanced significantly.

Thanks to the sponsors, our vet MARKdierenarts, the people that work at the Guadi shelter and many local volunteers who administer the pipettes and tablets, 2019 was the first year in the history of the shelter in which all the dogs were fully vaccinated, de-wormed and de-ticked.

I want to become a sponsor too!

Would you like to sponsor a dog in the Guadi shelter? Please choose your dog(s) from the photo album below and contact us at sponsors@perroenco.nl with the name of the dogs you want to sponsor.

We always try to keep the price for the pipettes and tablets as low as possible, by buying large quantities at once via our local vet: MARKdierenarts. Each year, MARKdierenarts manages to get huge discounts on anti-parasitics for our programme at his suppplier.

For 2021/2022 the year-amount to sponsor one dog is € 47,60. Off course, sponsoring more than one dog is possible too.

A sponsor year runs from September to September. If you start the sponsorship later, you will pay retroactively for the previous months. If your sponsordog leaves the shelter because it is adopted or if it dies (unfortunately this happens sometimes, and also new dogs will arrive) we will inform you, so you can choose another dog to benefit from your sponsorship.

The sponsor-amount can be transferred to: Stichting Perro & Co NL27RBRB0706324641 (BIC RBRBNL21) or paid via Paypal to penningmeester@perroenco.nl. Please mention the name of your sponsor-dog as payment reference.

“Sponsors for healthy dogs Guadi” is een preventief gezondheidsprogramma voor de honden in het Portugese Guadi asiel. Dit programma is opgezet om de honden in het asiel te beschermen tegen ziektes, waarvan sommige maar moeilijk te genezen zijn, chronisch zijn of zelfs dodelijk.

Mediterrane ziektes zoals leishmaniose, ehrlichiose en filaria (hartworm) worden verspreid door parasieten zoals muskieten, teken en zandvliegen. Preventieve behandeling tegen deze parasieten betekent een hogere beschermingsgraad tegen deze ziektes. Klik hier voor meer informatie over Mediterrane ziektes.

Verder is vaccinatie noodzakelijk om uitbraken van parvo, hondenziekte en rabies in het Guadi asiel te voorkomen. Sinds de honden in het asiel zijn gevaccineerd kunnen ook puppies veilig in het asiel blijven zonder het risico om gevaarlijk ziek te worden. (Eerder moesten alle puppies door lokale pleeggezinnen worden opgenomen, omdat het asiel een serieus gezondheidsgevaar voor ze betekende.)

De lokale overheid voorziet het Guadi asiel van hondenvoer, water en betaalt het salaris van 3 medewerkers, maar draagt niet bij aan de kosten voor medische behandelingen of preventie. Gemiddeld wonen er ongeveerd 100 honden in het asiel. De medische kosten zijn erg hoog en moeten volledig betaald worden uit giften.

Daarom is het “Sponsors for Healthy Dogs Guadi” opgezet. Dit sponsorprogramma biedt mensen de mogelijkheid om een jaar lang een hond in het Guadi asiel te sponsoren. De gesponsorde hond wordt volledig gevaccineerd, ontwormd en krijgt preventieve behandeling tegen parasieten met Effitix (or Bravecto) en Milpro.

Nu investeren in preventie voorkomt hoge medische kosten en zieke honden in de toekomst. Bovendien kunnen puppies in het asiel bijven zonder levensgevaarlijke gezondheidsrisico’s. En omdat de parasitaire druk afneemt, is het immuumsysteem van de honden sterker, waardoor ze ook minder vatbaar zijn voor andere gezondheidsproblemen.

Dankzij “Sponsors for health dogs Guadi” is de veiligheid en het welzijn van de honden in het asiel enorm verhoogd. En omdat de honden gezond blijven, is ook hun kans op adoptie significant groter.

Dankzij de sponsoren, onze dierenarts MARKdierenarts, de mensen die in het Guadi asiel werken en de vele locale vrijwilligers die de pipetten en tableten uitdelen aan de honden, was 2019 het eerste jaar in de geschiedenis van het asiel waarin alle honden vollediger zijn gevaccineerd, ontwormd en vrij waren van teken.

Ik wil ook sponsor worden!

Wil jij een hond in het Guadi asiel sponsoren? Kies dan een hond (of honden) uit in het fotoalbum hieronder en neem contact met ons op via sponsors@perroenco.nl en geef de naam voor van de hond die je wil sponsoren.

We proberen de prijs voor de pipetten en tabletten altijd zo laag mogelijk te houden door grote hoeveelheden ineens in te kopen via onze lokale dierenarts: MARKdierenarts. Elk jaar regelt MARKdierenarts voor ons programma grote kortingen bij zijn leverancier op anti-parasitaire middelen.

Voor 2021/2022 is het jaarbedrag om één hond te sponsoren € 47,60. Het is natuurlijk ook mogelijk om meer dan één hond te sponsoren.

Het sponsorjaar loopt van september tot september. Als je later start met sponsoren, dan betaal je met terugwerkende kracht voor de maanden ervoor. Als jouw sponsorhond het asiel verlaat omdat hij geadopteerd is of komt te overlijden (ook dat gebeurt soms helaas, en er komen ook nieuwe honden binnen) dan informeren wij jou, zodat je een andere hond kunt uitkiezen die kan profiteren van jouw sponsorschap.

Het sponsorbedrag kan worden overgemaakt naar: Stichting Perro & Co NL27RBRB0706324641 (BIC RBRBNL21) of worden betaald via Paypal aan penningmeester@perroenco.nl. Vermeld svp de naam van jouw sponsorhond als referentie bij de betaling.

Deutsch

„Sponsoren für gesunde Hunde Guadi“ ist ein Gesundheitsvorsorgeprogramm für Hunde im portugiesischen Tierheim Guadi. Dieses Programm soll die Hunde im Tierheim vor zum Teil schwer heilbaren, chronischen oder sogar tödlichen Krankheiten schützen.

Mittelmeerkrankheiten wie Leishmaniose, Ehrlichiose und Filarien (Herzwurm) werden durch Parasiten wie Mücken, Zecken und Sandmücken übertragen. Eine vorbeugende Behandlung gegen diese Parasiten bedeutet einen höheren Schutz gegen diese Krankheiten. Klicken Sie hier für weitere Informationen über Mittelmeerkrankheiten mehr Info’s hier.

Darüber hinaus ist eine Impfung erforderlich, um Ausbrüche von Parvo, Staupe und Tollwut im Tierheim Guadi zu verhindern. Da die Tierheimhunde geimpft sind, können auch Welpen im Tierheim bleiben, ohne gefährlich zu erkranken. Früher mussten alle Welpen von örtlichen Pflegefamilien aufgenommen werden, da der Aufenthalt im Tierheim ein ernsthaftes Gesundheitsrisiko darstellte.

Die lokale Regierung versorgt das Tierheim Guadi mit Hundefutter, Wasser und zahlt den Lohn für 3 Mitarbeiter, beteiligt sich jedoch nicht an den Kosten für medizinische Versorgung oder Prävention. Im Durchschnitt leben rund 100 Hunde im Tierheim. Die medizinischen Kosten im Tierheim sind sehr hoch und müssen komplett aus Spenden bezahlt werden.

Deshalb wurde „Sponsoren für gesunde Hunde Guadi“ ins Leben gerufen. Dieses Patenprogramm ermöglicht es das Menschen, im Tierheim Guadi für ein Jahr eine Patenschaft für einen Hund übernehmen. Der gesponserte Hund wird vollständig geimpft, entwurmt und erhält eine vorbeugende Behandlung gegen Parasiten mit Effitix (oder Bravecto) und Milpro.

Wer jetzt in die Prävention investiert, vermeidet in Zukunft hohe medizinische Kosten und kranke Hunde. Außerdem können Welpen im Tierheim bleiben, ohne dass ihre Gesundheit oder ihr Leben gefährdet werden. Und weil der parasitäre Druck abnimmt, ist das Immunsystem der Hunde stärker, so dass sie auch weniger anfällig für andere gesundheitliche Probleme sind.

Mit „Sponsoren für gesunde Hunde Guadi“ hat sich die Sicherheit und das Wohlbefinden der Hunde im Tierheim massiv erhöht. Und weil die Hunde gesund bleiben, erhöht sich ihre Chance, in ihr ewiges Zuhause adoptiert zu werden, erheblich.

Dank den Sponsoren, unserem Tierarzt MARKdierenarts, den Mitarbeitern des Guadi-Tierheims und vielen lokalen Freiwilligen, die die Pipetten und Tabletten verabreichen, war 2019 das erste Jahr in der Geschichte des Tierheims, in dem alle Hunde vollständig geimpft und entwurmt wurden.

Ich möchte auch Sponsor werden!

Möchten Sie eine Patenschaft für einen Hund im Tierheim Guadi übernehmen? Bitte wählen Sie Ihre(n) Hund(e) aus dem Fotoalbum unten aus und kontaktieren Sie uns unter sponsors@perroenco.nl mit den Namen der Hunde, die Sie sponsern möchten.

Wir versuchen immer, den Preis für die Pipetten und Tabletten so niedrig wie möglich zu halten, indem wir große Mengen auf einmal über unseren Tierarzt vor Ort kaufen: MARKdierenarts.

Jedes Jahr gelingt es MARKdierenarts, bei seinem Lieferanten riesige Rabatte auf Antiparasitika für unser Programm zu erhalten.

Für 2021/2022 beträgt der Jahresbeitrag für einen Hund € 47,60. Selbstverständlich ist auch die Patenschaft für mehr als einen Hund möglich.

Ein Sponsorenjahr läuft von September bis September. Wenn Sie die Patenschaft später beginnen, zahlen Sie rückwirkend für die Vormonate. Wenn Ihr Patenhund das Tierheim verlässt, weil er adoptiert wurde oder stirbt (leider passiert dies manchmal, und es kommen auch neue Hunde hinzu), werden wir Sie informieren, damit Sie einen anderen Hund auswählen können, der von Ihrer Patenschaft profitiert.

Der Sponsor-Betrag kann überwiesen werden an: Stichting Perro & Co NL27RBRB0706324641 (BIC RBRBNL21) oder per Paypal an penningmeester@perroenco.nl. Bitte geben Sie als Zahlungsreferenz den Namen Ihres Patenhundes an.
