Visits to the Animal Shelter

Visits to the Animal Shelter

The program offered by the project “Learn Russian in the European Union” includes a large number of excursions and field trips. We also organize for our foreign students visits to the animal shelter “Second Home”. In our today’s article, we’re going to tell you how the visits are organized and what our students’ impressions about them are.

About the animal shelter

The organization “Otrā māja dzīvniekiem” (“Second Home for Animals”) was founded on May 20 in 2010 to help homeless, ill or injured domestic and wild animals, to protect them, to disseminate information about animals in need for help, as well to help them to find the contact with people.

About the animal shelter

Later, on April 12 in 2014, the animal shelter “Second Home” was opened. The shelter is located in Daugavpils region, in Demene Parish near the village of Janucems. Any person can donate some money for animals or work in the shelter as a volunteer.

Visits to the animal shelter is an extra-curriculum activity, and students can choose whether to participate in it or not. However, almost all our students, especially ones who love animals join the event with enthusiasm.

As a rule, students bring gifts for animals to the shelter, and make donations. At the shelter, students play with animals or take them out for a walk. Most students who have visited the shelter at least once, would like to go there again. Therefore, we organize visits to the shelter regularly throughout the program.
