WE HAVE FOUR TASKS OF EDUCATION AND TRAINING:
Thanks to the Swiss Foundation Susy Utzinger 5000 Booklets for children could be printed. 1000 booklets are with our partners in Shkodra and can be ordered at Pro Qen Albania and over 3000 Booklets will be distributed in the schools of Kosovo and can be ordered at Pro Vet Nagavc - everything to find on Facebook. Else contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
In June 2016 we took another important step: Educating children at the primary school in Gjakova. Our veterinarians visited every hour another class, with two puppies, and introduced the flyer from Anna Fleischhauer to teach children to understand dogs and the stray dog problem. (see here)
Continuos training of motivated and interested veterinarians in 2016 and 2017
Again our veterinarians offer to students in their last year or veterinarians that are specialized on large animals, how to spay and neuter dogs with a small cut. This year DVM Dardan Pozhegu from Pristina spent one day at Pro Vet Klinika in Nagavc.
Last year the dutch volunteer vet Birgit Brants trained DVM Henrik Nulleshi, DVM Ernest Nulleshi and DVM Adrian Mulla from the veterinary station in Peja, so that they can any time take over this work for their municipality.
It is wonderful to have their support.
Continuos formation for Albanian and Kosovarian veterinarians in surgery technique and dog catching, here DVM Artenis Limoj from Vlora/Albania who works with JETA TierundMensch, a small Swiss Association.
February 2017, Training of the future vet (March 2017) Perparim Kastrati, Malisheva, and DVM Bujar Mustafa from Celina.
We try to profit from the circumstance, that most Kosovarians use Facebook. Our program is to post regularly during this year comics about stray dogs to make everyone understand, where they come from. Our volunteer cartoonist EL ZONKO from DE-Halle a.S. is creating new cartoons every few months. If you have any idea, which topic should be posted, just write us: email@example.com!
Of course the text for Facebook is in Shqip - but here we post the english version, so you can follow us, what we are doing.
Let us not forget to mention the training of our workers in animal care. Most of the time DVM Blendi Bejdoni and DVM Eriola Palla instruct our workers. Then Meg Ardner, retired US Army Officer, works with our dogs at the Sanctuary and shows the workers how to care for them. Finally Athina Löhrer and Jasmin Rosenberger, two 2nd year apprentices in the Swiss shelter Strubeli/Hegnau spent one week End of May 2016 in Nagavc Sanctuary and Pro Vet clinic, where they showed all clinic-employees and shelter workers how to clean a shelter and how to care for dogs.
