Võru animal shelter is one of the seven shelters that comprise Animal Shelters NGO. It is situated in the southern part of Estonia. The shelter annually hosts about 3500 pets, mainly cats and dogs.
The shelter works to reunite a lot of pets with their owners as well as to rehome those in need. The organization also strives to decrease the number of the new-born pets in streets by not only neutering but also by educating people and taking part in different campaigns. Several municipalities also help the organization by organizing campaigns for chipping pets.
As always, every pet that is admitted to the shelter gets all necessary treatments: vaccinations, micro chipping and anti-parasite treatment.
With the help of donators, every adult pet gets neutered before adoption. There is a small clinic room in the shelter and a veterinary who examines all the pets taken in and performs surgeries.
Võru animal shelter is a partner of local municipalities. However, if possible, the shelter supports individuals as well if their living conditions do not allow to keep pets.
The motto is “Every pet must have a home”.
