Last year, atriga once more donated to the animal shelter Egelsbach and the association Wildtierhilfe Schäfer, based in Offenbach am Main. These christmas gifts are intended to ensure the existence of two regional organisations, which are financed exclusively by membership fees, donations or sponsorships.
The donations were more than welcome in 2022: Both organisations are suffering from the exploding energy costs. The Wildtierhilfe Schäfer with its approximately 1.500 wild animals is moreover desperately looking for a new place to stay.
Furthermore the animal shelter Egelsbach with its 40 dogs is bursting at the seams, as many so-called corona dogs have been returned and placements are declining. „We at atriga once more renounce customer gifts in 2022 and instead supported two local animal welfare associations that need every help“, emphasises atriga Managing Director Oliver Burgis when presenting the donation checks.
It’s a good time for doing the right things. But which of the numerous organisations should be supported? atriga decided to again support the two organisations in the local environment in 2022, which take great care of animals in need with great commitment. atriga Managing Director Oliver Burgis: “Continuity is paramount for atriga. Therefore, there was no question for us to continue this tradition in 2022 and to help those who really need it. Of course, we are also happy if as many other donors and helpers as possible follow our example and support these committed animal rights activists.”
