The corona crisis has caused a lot in our animal food bank.
We help people who already have a pet and have become financially difficult to feed their pet. Every week they come to Wilrijk, Sinaai or Hoevenen to pick up their package and Corona arrived.
The necessary authorities have been contacted to provide the people with animal feed, this was approved provided we kept to some agreements. Like the social distance, the hygiene, the mouth masks. People bring their own bags and clean pots so we can fill everything.
Unfortunately, we have had a period where several people did not come to us for fear of getting sick or for fear of being fined. That is why we have also made proof of consent in collaboration with animal welfare so that people still have the freedom to pick up the food for their animals without any problems. Of course that gave us also the idea of how great is the need for these people, because we did not get warned that one did not come.
REPECT: these people will have to register again.
What was wonderful is that #zowizoo Contich has continued to support us throughout this crisis, we have received cat food and dog food from them to help our people further. Therefore a very big thank you for all your support www.zowizoo. be
CORONA AND POEZEWOEF ON 11-5.
The influx of new people is enormous, these people have all been affected by the crisis and have been in financial difficulties as a result. We also help them further. The gratitude here is so great that we do this with great pleasure. The rules are still the same here, but we hope soon that it will all be a bit more social again, with a taske coffee and a biscuit so that everyone can have their talk. Many have a great need for this, as the crisis has led to an even greater unification (confinement). That's one of our big goals - getting people out and making social contacts.
Some collectors have started to bring our homemade mouthmask to the man so that a penny comes in for the vet costs (caster project). We are still thinking about projects because of the crisis the events have been cancelled and we therefore have agreat source of income losses. At this time, animals that are sick or need surgery are allowed to go to one of our veterinarians. The castrations and sterilizations are still on hold until there is sufficient income and our veterinarians also get full permission from the government.
Hughs with Tails joined our network and opened an animal food bank in Ghent because they also note that the need is very high because poverty continues to rise and especially with this crisis.
By a network we mean: Several animal food banks from all over Belgium that have the same goal in mind: to provide assistance to people with pets who have fallen into financial difficulties. Helping each other without interest in food shortages and being honest and sincere. For a while there have been the animal food bank in Limburg with us Carla and aarschot with us Ann. Hooves and Sinai are part of Poozewoef.
Of course we hope that more real ones will be added so that humans and animals can be helped further.
Our animal food bank continues its disinterested work so that humans and animals can stay together in these already difficult times.
If you wish to support us, you can do this by donating dogs or cat chunks. We can pick up but also have a donation box at the front door where you can put food in.
We still accept red light pennies and you can also make a deposit on our account (mentioned at the bottom) these pennies go to the vet account of the poezewoef.
You can always follow us on https://www.facebook.com/poezewoefwilrijk/ and if you need help you can submit a member request.

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