Varjupaikade NGO (Animal Shelters NGO) was founded in 2007 and it represents more than a half of the shelters for homeless animals in Estonia. Our shelters are located in Lääne County, Pärnu, Tallinn, Valga, Viljandi, Lääne-Viru County, Võru and we constantly look after about 100 dogs and 400 cats.

Our goals are to help lost animals make their way back home, find new loving homes for abandoned or stray animals and inform people about the importance of spaying or neutering and marking animals, and the high number of unwanted pets. In order to achieve our goals, we also cooperate with other similar institutions and local government and supervisory bodies, organise various training days and fundraising events, assist local authorities in the development of regulations on keeping pets, prepare and disseminate written information materials and cooperate with the press to promote the good practise of keeping pets.
