Viktoria moved from Kyiv to Deremezna in 2010 together with her pet animals — 4 dogs and 30 cats. With that, the shelter began, the woman rescued abandoned animals on the roads in the area, in the forest, or those that were thrown to her by people.
- The most difficult thing in the work of the shelter is
Daily working conditions for employees. I can't handle 200 animals alone. I have only one permanent employee.
- What motivates
Love for animals. Understanding that animals need our help, because they are helpless. Even when it's very difficult and you want to stop, but it's a constant process, you can't.
- Monthly expenses for the shelter
It's hard to say for sure. More than 100 000 UAH. Treatment costs from UAH 20 000, salary - from UAH 10 000, electricity - UAH 5 000, there is no last gas, firewood, feed, fuel.
- What are you dreaming about?
So that the shelter was equipped. To make it comfortable for both the animals and the people who take care of them.
