We specialise in rescue dogs

Around 100,000 people are reported as missing every year in Germany!

Many of them were lost, had an accident, or experienced health problems when walking through forests. They are often elderly people and many of them are children (approximately 40,000) and most of them have one thing in common: they find themselves in potentially life-threatening situations that they can’t get out of themselves.

: 53 tons of humanitarian aid sent to Ukraine so far

Hünxe, Germany (March 18, 2022). The relief organizations BRH Bundesverband Rettungshunde (Hünxe) and I.S.A.R. Germany (Duisburg) have sent 53 tons of humanitarian aid to the conflict zone since the war broke out in Ukraine. The supplies were first transported by trucks to a warehouse in Poland and subsequently to the city of Zhytomyr, which is located around 100 kilometers (or 62 miles) away from Kyiv. In the city, I.S.A.R. members participated in delivering the humanitarian aid to a maternity clinic, a day-care center, and the local authority. The city has already been the target of multiple attacks, which has also resulted in damage to the maternity clinic. Some of the humanitarian aid supplies will be moved to other parts of the country in the coming days.
