Raising funds for street dogs in Romania and Guatemala

Many thanks for your support, which meant we were able to complete the project successfully.
Chris and Conny have become aware of the suffering of many animals during their travels. Now they are taking part in a charity rally and want to support several animal welfare organisations. Help the animals with a donation!


Our participation in the Baltic Sea Circle Rally 2022 requires, among other things, supporting a charitable project with at least 750 EUR. Since we know so many organisations personally and know that each of them is in need of support, especially during these times, we have decided to support 3 organisations with our and your donations.
We love animals of all kinds and have been involved in animal welfare for many years. On our travels we continue to be confronted with the unacceptable conditions in many countries, which is the reason why we try to help whenever possible. This is also why we decided to start this appeal for donations.

The following are brief descriptions of the organisations we would like to support:
Who is Animal Aware Guatemala?
On one of our trips we volunteered at the animal welfare organisation Animal Aware in Guatemala. The founders Xenii and Martin care for about 300 street dogs and 80 cats as well as some horses and donkeys that were neglected by their owners and on the verge of starvation. Xenii and Martin founded Animal Aware in the late 1970s and have dedicated their entire lives to these animals ever since. It is an incredible commitment to have kept going for so many years and to fight for the good cause every day.

Who is Happy Tails?
On our trip to Romania in 2020 we saw many street dogs, among others, we found a 6-week-old puppy at a rest stop, which had obviously been abandoned there. We took him and found a home for him in Germany ourselves. Later we became aware of Andra Maria from Happy Tails in Brasov. She takes care of street dogs in Romania and urgently needs donations to cover the costs for the most necessary things.

Who is A Heart for Strays?
On our trip to Romania in 2021 we found a litter of 9 puppies on the street. After a lot of phone calls back and forth and always getting the same answer "we are full, there is nothing more we can do", we eventually ended up at A Heart for Strays. They made the impossible possible and found a shelter where we could place the little ones. In the meantime, most of the little ones could be placed in Germany among other places. The work of this organisation is truly fantastic and we would like to support them.

What is the money for?
There are many things missing and the organisations are dependent on donations and volunteers to feed the animals and provide urgently needed medical care. Your donations will be used for

  • Food

  • Vaccinations

  • General medicine

  • Castrations

  • Sterilisations

  • Medical procedures of all kinds

  • and much more

We will distribute the money we raise in equal parts to the organisations mentioned above.

Thank you so much for your support

We are overwhelmed and delighted that so many people have helped us to reach and even exceed our fundraising target.

On behalf of Happy Tails, Animal Aware and A Heart for Strays, we would like to thank everyone who supported our project. We would also like to thank for your support, without your platform and help with the project we would not have been as successful.

Best regards
Conny & Chris

P.S. The picture shows Gipsy, who we found on the street in 2020 when he was about 6 weeks old. Today he lives happily with his new family in the Eifel :-)
