atriga already supported animal welfare organisations in 2021:

Wildtierhilfe Schäfer and Tierherberge Egelsbach are pleased with donation again

It is remarkable to be able to continue a good tradition, especially in difficult times: Last year, atriga donated to the Tierherberge Egelsbach and the Wildtierhilfe Schäfer association based in Offenbach. For the animal rights activists, this Christmas gift helped to secure the existence of their organisations. It is precisely because of the Corona crisis that they are suffering from the decline in donations and grants. Both, Wildtierhilfe Schäfer and Tierherberge Egelsbach do not receive any public funding and are financed exclusively by membership fees, donations or sponsorships. “One more reason for us to continue supporting these committed animal welfare organisations. We at atriga want to help those who really need help,” said atriga’s authorised signatory Anita Gluszak-Haefs during the presentation of the donation cheques. 

 

Due to the difficult situation during the Corona crisis and the tense financial situation on all sides, atriga had already decided in 2020 to double the donation amount per association to 2,000 euros. Authorised signatory Anita Gluszak-Haefs: “Meaningful donations instead of Christmas presents – this also convinced our customers. Helping animals in need requires enormous commitment. That’s why we would like to use our donations to draw attention to two particular organisations in our local area – and thus encourage as many other donors and helpers as possible to support these committed animal rights activists”.

Injured forest animals and stray dogs need help

Wildtierhilfe Schäfer e. V. (www.wildtierhilfe-schaefer.de) took care of more than 2,500 animals in 2021 alone – including many birds, ducks, squirrels and even dormice. The number of hedgehogs in particular has risen sharply, as the animals can no longer find enough food to survive the winter.

The staff of Tierherberge Egelsbach (www.tierherberge-egelsbach.de) take care of stray dogs from Germany and abroad and organise, among many other things, the examination and treatment of the dogs by competent veterinarians and clinics. The private animal welfare facility has been in existence for more than 38 years and is run by Tier-Rettungs-Dienst Frankfurt e. V.
