The charity for EF this year is the Raubkatzenasyl,
which is one of the biggest animal shelters for big
cats in Europe. Founded by animal welfare activists,
they specialise in animals abandoned by
organisations such as circuses. Sadly, institutions
like it have become more and more necessary. In the
beginning there was no other choice than to put the
animals to sleep because the veterinarians treating
them were unable to find any acceptable facilities
to take care of them.
But then the Raubkatzenasyl was founded. Since then,
they have taken care of the cats of prey with great
skill and lots of love. They are currently
sheltering six tigers and three cougars.
Their youngest fosterlings aren't cats of prey, though.
They are foxes — the red fox Lea and her play
mate Finja who is an arctic fox. Both were saved
from a fur farm and animal traders.
To be able to offer their animals a lot of variety
on a daily basis, the team goes to great lengths.
The caretakers always try to think of new toys and
tricky puzzles for the animals to solve in order to
earn a treat.
We will offer you a great variety of opportunites to
donate at Eurofurence 17. With your help this
shelter can be maintained and keep up its great work
in taking care of their beautiful animals and even
saving new ones.
