Found and available animals

Upon the arrival of stray animals, we take direct care of them. We will try our best to find its owner. Click here for an overview of found pets staying with us. If unsuccessful, we will proceed to put the animal up for adoption after 14 days. Click here to view our animals available for adoption.


We offer boarding services for cats, dogs, rabbits, rodents and tame birds. Furthermore, we sell specific animal supplies including Carnibest natural animal feed. Furthermore, we provide education, raise awareness and facilitate social participation (internships, social workplaces, community service).
