Emergency call for 27 cattle –
Lukasz is called to a cruel animal tragedy

Dear friends of Pro Animale,

Lukasz receives a call from a journalist saying that he has been able to recognise dramatic animal misery via drone footage.

Lukasz immediately contacts the official vet and the local authority. This farmer’s cattle farming is well known, has been on record for three years and has already been reported to the court. But the wheels of justice grind slowly and then … what to do with the animals?

When Lukasz is on site with the public health officer, he shudders with horror. He calls us and emphasises that he has already seen a lot of misery, but this is a single animal tragedy …

+++ Acute Emergency +++
Flood disaster at our „Sorriso di San Francesco“ in Assisi/Italy

Dear friends of Pro Animale,

As I am sure you’ll appreciate, we are extremely busy with our Sorriso di San Francesco animal shelter in Assisi, which has been hit by the flood disaster. The situation remains dramatic.

We hope to be able to install our supply bridge in the next few weeks – until then we have to make do with a makeshift bridge to ensure the daily supplies for our horses, donkeys, sheep, goats and cats.

The supply bridge, the rebuilding of the fencing, the fortification of the river bank – all this now presents us with unimagined enormous financial challenges! Please support us in this enormous undertaking!
