Meet Cora who just came to the UK

Meet one of our new arrivals! Her name is Cora. 

She is only 2, but she has already experienced being a family dog, then abandonment, then a year in an overcrowded shelter together with 600 other dogs and almost no chance of finding a home and happiness.

£855 raised for 'The place of kindness' shelter

A week ago one of the shelters we support - shelter “The Place of kindness” - suffered from a devastating fire. The fire started at night. Unfortunately, 14 animals (8 cats and 6 dogs) perished in the fire.

Other animals (there are over 200 animals at the shelter) are safe. Some were lucky enough to have been rescued and the fire was stopped in time before it could reach the others.

Fantic and Bonya arrived in the UK

We have new arrivals! 

Fantic and Bonya arrived in the UK last night from Russia. Both of them were found at a rubbish dump in Aleksin, Tula region when they were still small pups.

They are now over 1 year old but they cannot find a home in Russia. No one wants them. Until now they were living in a home based shelter (which we help) which is overcrowded with rescued animals. So we decided to step in and help.

How volunteers saved Naida

Naida is one of the dogs we recently helped.

She was found roaming the streets and got very close to a children’s playground. Probably looking for food. Naida is a very friendly and calm dog. But some locals called a dog killing service (called “otstrel” or “отстрел” in Russian) and Naida was going to get killed.

Luckily some volunteers found out about it and got there first. 

Naida was placed in a foster home and it became obvious very quickly that she used to be a pet. She is calm, friendly with people, dogs and cats and is used to living at home.

Cute video from Kitty

Look at this amazing girl! The video speaks for itself.

This is why we are so focussed on our educational programmes for children. If the young generations understand why it is important to help animals and treat them with respect, we can hope for a better future!!

Thank you Kitty! ❤️🙏

If anyone is interested in organising or helping their children organise a fundraising event for LAPA (big or small), please contact us on info@lapauk.org

We would be delighted!

Dushman’s story

Dushman’s story is about love, hope and vulnerability.

He is an old boy and has been a stray for years, possibly all his life.

It’s especially tough for babies and oldies to survive in the streets - they are particularly vulnerable.

In May 2018 Dushman could barely walk - his joints were very swollen. He had severe arthritis with inflammation in his joints and pads from years of living in cold and wet conditions. He was hungry too - younger dogs would be quite pushy and he didn’t get much food.

We knew that he would not survive another winter in the street and without proper help. With regular culls in his area he was also at high risk of being killed. He couldn’t run away even if he tried!

A volunteer in Alexin, Tula region, who we support, took him home despite her house bursting at the seams with rescued animals.

After 6 months of care, good food, sleeping in a warm bed (made of hay and blankets) and having some relaxing fun with other dog friends , Dushman has become a different dog! Even his coat has changed colour!

Dushman is finally safe and happy. Seeing him smiling and dancing is all one needs to know that it was worth it!
