GIVING BACK #love
We believe in giving back, what we can, to make this world a better place for all paws.
Knowing what it's like on the rough & cold streets of the world, to having the luck of finding a forever, loving & warm home, cannot be taken for granted, that's for sure. Therefore, we want to give back the love we have received, by helping other furry fwends out there in need, with our products, providing them with food and shelter and the possibility of finding their very own, forever home. Cuz every paw, deserves the best!
How it all started...
From the streets of Romania, to finding home in Innsbruck, after an exhausting and terrifying life...
Fostering Amy & Luis was the initial plan, accenting "initial", as plans changed quite a bit in no time...
Late October, 2020, the 1.5-year-old siblings arrived after an exhausting 24h drive from Romania, were they presumably lived on the streets for most of their lives. Together with TINA (Tiere in Not Austria), they were luckily able to travel out of the country and were fostered by Melina immediately.
Amy & Luis were both extremely friendly straight away, yet very shy and precautious towards humans. They surely haven't had the most pleasing life, nor any great experiences with mankind till that day it seemed obviously. Therefore, they needed a lot of patience, gentle kindness and lots of love of course. Within the first seconds we met, we were greatly rewarded already with a lot of kisses and first steps to redeeming their trust. It was wonderful.
As days, weeks, months passed and no appropriate home was found for the two, Melina decided it was time to make a decision. It was time for them to finally settle, find their inner peace and arrive home. So after some thinking and closely listening to the heart, Amy & Luis were no foster dogs no more, but had finally found their forever home. That's when Amy & Luis was officially born - inspired by love, made with love, for loved ones.

Amy & Luis' very first day. Arrival from Romania, late October, 2020, after an exhausting 24h drive. They were extremely friendly from the start, yet very shy & delicate from their traumatising experiences with mankind. It was the 1st day of a new & loving chapter in their life. They finally arrived home. 'Amy & Luis' was officially born - inspired by love, made with love, for loved ones.
