By 2020 - Welcome 2021 A New Year For Pet Food Bank Poezewoef


2020 is a year that many want to forget very quickly.

Well here at the #Poezewoef not. It's been a very difficult year that has brought us closer together.

The first part of the year we almost dropped out because corona came into the country and we went into lockdown.

The fear among the people was very great, so great that we threatened to fall without dogs and cats food. People stayed home and donations stayed away.

We have worked very hard together with many others including #Zowizoo to Kontich to solve this problem. We are very grateful to everyone that we could count on so much support. That saved us in the first part of the year.

But then came spring and summer, a period of many events. Events that we need so much here at the pussy to let all our animals go to the vet.

The lack of colleagues, sponsors, sympathizers, donors. Contacts with shops were lost, cool people were lost. In short, quite a job to get through this.

But then came the idea of doing actions along with our collectors, our members. To craft together, to draw attention to our association together.

Because our animal food bank is not only for our animals, our owners are also of great importance here. There was therefore a fries day done in as many as 6 times (because we were only allowed to meet with 10) so that our owners also once were pampered and that was very appreciated.

After the holiday, our CASTER project (the vet costs we join) threatened to stop due to the lack of income from events.

And there came the idea to take a candy action together with our collectors. Pounds of sweets were purchased and packed in sachets of 250 gr.

Each collecter was given 5 bags and ordered to sell them to friends. And miraculously (because we didn't think so) everyone spontaneously did me and thanks to the collaboration and commitment of our members we were able to save the CASTER project and so let all animals go to the vet this year.

We were able to send 67 animals to the vet this year.

We lost four animals this year to natural death.

We have 4 kittens who were dropped here can deliver a new home.

We've had five heavy surgeries, which, fortunately, all went well.

We have become a close and warm association this year. It's not just a team of administrators and their volunteers, but everyone in our association has given a hand this year. Everyone offered help where they could.

We are so proud to join you in our 4th year with great pleasure. We are going to make sure that our animal food bank poezewoef willfully vzw together with you and your animals will pop in 2021.

There's going to be a new pickup point in Antwerp.

We will focus on the search for sponsors and donors, both for food and for pennies for the Veterinarians project (caster-project)

We're all going to be able to do events this year.

There will be workshops and not only for our members, but also for people from outside.

We are going to set up together, not only for the caster project but above all to make our social contacts even better.

We will be happy to do even more to make all our bugs and owners happy because that's what we do for.

So, our story of 2020 is ready and our 2021 start is on paper,

We hope that we can count on your support and friendship in our 4th year.

And our motto remains

TOGETHER FOR THE ANIMALS THAT'S WHAT WE DO FOR.
