How we help
We love animals and almost everyone at bookoff has at least one pet. That’s why we decided to join a charity event and help those animals that are not as lucky as ours. For every online order placed in our bookshop in April, we will give one tin of food to the local foundation helping homeless animals „Bezpieczna Przystań”!
ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
„Bezpieczna Przystań” was founded in Warsaw on the 9th of November 2006. It is an institution run in accordance with the Polish Animal Protection Act and the European Convention for the Protection of Pet Animals, which means that the foundation is dedicated to helping homeless animals.
The Foundation exists thanks to donations and people of good will. It provides appropriate conditions and safety to the animals (mostly cats) staying at the Adoption Centre, which is also a private home. For this reason, the Foundation is unable to accept all the animals that need help and respond positively to every phone call from people who report that they have found a homeless animal. However, this is a place of first aid and first contact – at very least to provide advice on how to help a homeless animal.
As far as possible, the Foundation provides help to homeless cats and dogs. It also supports animal carers in the proper care of homeless animals and gives phone advice to people who care about animal welfare.
HOW MANY TINS OF FOOD HAVE WE COLLECTED SO FAR THANKS TO YOUR ONLINE PURCHASES IN OUR BOOKSTORE?
From April 1st we have collected 272 tins of food!
