Our work is motivated by a deep conviction and belief in animal rights as a natural and fundamental principle.
We are an international non-profit group of volunteers committed to
the protection of homeless dogs in Saint-Petersburg and Russia.
In cooperation with a number of private groups, public organizations
and veterinarians, we rescue, sterilize, vaccinate, chip, and improve
the welfare of animals, providing all necessary medical and foster care
while finding permanent homes for stray dogs rescued from the streets.
We believe that in a country where the law system doesn't keep pace
with the times and new demands, we activists should stand out as a
courageous and selfless example. One should remember that an
intellectual idea often surpasses existing laws. Laws appear later if
they appear at all: However, no idea can really protect animals; only
the law can do it.
Laws are being developed and are becoming more
progressive; an intellectual idea gives birth to new thoughts... this is
how human civilization has been moving forward over centuries...
We know about the existing negative attitude towards stray dogs and
other animals and we know about the incompleteness of the current law
system, which allows human cruelty.
The government is trying to reform and increase the present level of
knowledge, or at least agrees that one should exist. We have studied the
history of countries that demonstrate high levels of humanitarian ideas
In order to improve the current situation, we maintain regular
official correspondence with the state and city authorities. Together
we've managed to achieve some sensible results.
We firmly believe in the power of the law and in the fact that the law can change people's attitude towards animals.
We are convinced of the rightness and rationality of our work and moral principles.
We place our hope in the people, who are not indifferent to the fate
of animals suffering from man's cruelty, irresponsibility and
