The team at PAAW House are all very passionate about animal welfare and we admire the work and dedication of everyone who works to make the lives of animals better. This is why we are so happy to introduce you to our charity partner the Wild at Heart Foundation and tell you about the great work they do across the world to make a difference to the lives of dogs.
“The Wild at Heart Foundation believes in dogs. Dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. Dogs from all over the world, especially dogs who aren’t fortunate enough to be born into a life of health and happiness. It is this belief that inspires them to fund and support dog rescue and adoption projects all over the world to help reduce the world’s stray dog population.
Currently there are over 600 million stray dogs in the world and it’s estimated that around 1 billion unwanted puppies are born on the streets each year. Most of these die before they reach three years old and the “lucky” ones that beat these odds are, in the main, subject to a life of struggle, battling against disease, starvation, mistreatment and violent abuse.
The Wild at Heart Foundation wants to end the suffering of these amazing creatures and through their international dog rescue and adoption work, they are working towards a day when every dog, no matter where in the world they come from, can live a life free from fear and pain.
Founded in 2015, their team is small but dynamic and establish projects and initiatives (like the ones below) all over the world that help dogs:
International dog rescue & adoption
Providing funding and support to international adoption projects, helping to rescue dogs from overseas and allowing them to experience the love, and safety they deserve.
Organising and funding spay and neuter programmes, including research into new sterilisation techniques. Mass sterilisation remains the only compassionate means, of effectively combatting the rapidly growing number of dogs born into a life of suffering and misery.
Delivering educational initiatives that teach the next generation how important it is to care for animals, laying the foundations for a future fuelled by compassion and respect”.
