Lily and Barns Give Back

Lily and Barns give back!

Lily and Barnaby were found on a construction site near Moscow in 2015 and thanks to some incredible, selfless people they were rescued and a couple months later have been flown to us to start a new life in Berlin. They changed our life completely and it is safe to say that they turned it into a fairytale filled with unconditional love, fun and the friendship of a lifetime. Everyone who knows the two of them, knows how true this statement is.

Their story has a happy ending, but it is important not to forget how many more animals are waiting for a happy and forever home, medical treatment, transportation or just as simple as food.

This being said, we would like to take this initiative in the name of Barnaby and Lily and raise money for the animals in need, and the team, My Super Dog Project (,
who rescues them in Russia.

The donations will be made directly to the shelter and its Charitable Foundation of Stray Animal Aid registered under the name "You are my friend" (in Russian: ты мой друг), which takes care of most of the rescued animals in the area.

The money being collected will be spent in 3 ways -

Firstly, a medical/ emergency account will be opened at the vet rgualrly used by the shelter in order to cover the costs of necessary and emergency medical treatments & surgeries

Secondly, this account will also cover the cost of medicine prior, during and post treatment given to the animals

And last, but not least, food will be bought for the shelter for all animals being hosted and taken care of by the organisaton. 

Valentina Resnik, the representative of the organisation in Germany will withdraw the funds directly from GoFundMe and will transfer the donations to the shelter and it's leader, Olga Korol, who will put it to use according to the the 3 points above.

It is time for us to give back and help the team and the animals they care for and make a bit of magic happen this Christmas! Every euro counts, so please don't be shy!

The donations will be closed on the 20th of December.

We will be sure to share where the money is being spent and how much good your care and attention has done in the world and the life of these animals and people!

Thank you !
Samantha & Dora
