We are a private animal shelter in Lithuania which don’t get funding from the government. Our aim is to help homeless dogs and cats find their forever home and make their waiting time more comfortable and warm than their life was until the shelter.

Who we are? We are homeless animal shelter “Penkta Koja” which was started back in 2010. Up until this year all our personnel was volunteers, but now we can afford to have few necessary constant workers, all other people are volunteers. We are a private animal shelter and we don’t put down animals if they don’t find their forever home for a long time, we keep them until it is needed. Also we don’t get funding from government, we only survive due to the charity of good people and organizations. You might think that it is ordinary practice in majority of the countries, but not in ours.

Our mission - continually reduce homeless animals number in Lithuania while taking humane measures, that is, by conducting the strict female dogs sterilization programme, responsible animal gifting and educating our society about animal welfare problems.

Our vision – reduced number of homeless animals which will lead to: only one animal in each of our cages and fenced areas; that twice a year we won’t get more than 60 - 70 young abandoned puppies; that there won’t be any animal abuse cases and people will take and care of their pets with responsibility.

Our statistics: In 2014 646 homeless dogs found refuge in our shelter and 446 of them found their loving home, 66 runaways were returned back home. In the first nine month of 2015 we already took in 522 animals and gifted 378. Currently we have around 150 dogs and some cats.

Our purposes and functions:

  1.      Treating and giving temporally custody to homeless animals while looking for new loving owners for them.
  2.      Active female dog and cat sterilization campaign to avoid unnecessary offspring that often one way or another again ends up in our arms.
  3.      Activity while sharing various stories from our daily life with society via social media, responding to their help requests.
  4.      Organizing various events and donating campaigns involving organizations that are willing to help us, implementing various projects of which the main purpose is the education of our society about responsible behavior with domesticated animals.
  5.      Taking over homeless animals from organizations that puts down animals after 14 days of their arrival.

What we need from YOU? We want to kindly ask for your help with our cause to rescue and make the lives of homeless animals better. We do this because we don’t have any other option – today we are lacking funds to install the fully functional bathroom with bathtub for our animals as soon as possible. After this, there are more, a never ending cycle.

Not all dogs that reach us are clean and healthy, their fur is often messy, tangled and filled with fleas, and sometimes they have skin diseases that needs to be treated as soon as possible. To make animals feel more comfortable and get well faster we need to provide them with hygienic and beauty procedures and for now we don’t have measures and suitable premises to do that. So one of our priorities is the installation of the bathroom with modern equipment. This would allow us to shorten not always pleasant for animals beauty and hygienic procedures and make them feel more convenient while they are treated. It is not a secret that a beautiful and clean puppy attracts the eye more. This measure will allow us to save time, resources and fuel when we will be able to treat animals on the spot.

To make animals feel more comfortable and get well faster we need to provide them with hygienic and beauty procedures and for now, we don’t have measures and suitable premises to do that. The installation of bathroom suited for animals would allow us to shorten not always pleasant for animals beauty and hygienic procedures and make them feel more convenient while they are treated. 

For that to happen we need:

900 for tilling;

200 for the making of concrete wall and floor;

1100 for tiles;

300 tile glue;

200 tile filler;

140 for 2 shower heads;

200€ for 2 coil-pipes;

Total: 3040 €
