The Knaaghof Animal Rescue Centre is holding an Open Day on September 30th between 1100 and 1600. During the day, animal lovers are welcome to take a look behind the scenes, get acquainted with the animals that are staying there, get information about volunteering and participate in fun activities. Tae a walk around the centre, interrogate a veterinarian and take a look at the animal ambulance. There is also plenty to do for children!
Animals lose their home because they get lost, are dumped or because circumstances can no longer provide for them. All these animals are lovingly taken care of in the shelter. They are temporarily accommodated, medical care and guidance if necessary. What we want for these animals is above all a new home.
The Knaaghof is part of the Animal Protection. The Dutch Society for the Protection of Animals is responsible for accommodating 25,000 asylum animals per year and its animal ambulances annually 65,000 times to help out animals in need. In addition, district inspectors from the National Inspection Service for Animal Protection (LID) and voluntary Employees in the Field Department annually report thousands of reports of neglect or abuse of animals, and the Animal Protection Department uses information and preventive work to prevent future animal suffering.
