Tiertafel volunteers bring food, meds to deaf man with blind dog

Fri, 07/17/2015

Mr. Zickelbein, 77, lives in an apartment in central Berlin with his poodle Rudi.

Zickelbein is deaf from birth; Rudi is blind.

A journey across the city to the Tiertafel facility, which assists people in need with their pet care, is not easy for the two, so every couple weeks Tiertafel volunteers bring Zickelbein Rudi’s food and medicine prescribed by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) vet in vans donated by IFAW.

Hunting Vote Postponed To Avoid Government Defeat

Leading animal welfare charity the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is delighted that the Government has come unstuck in its attempts to sabotage the Hunting Act.

The Government announced today that it was postponing a vote scheduled for tomorrow on wrecking amendments to the Hunting Act, following on from the announcement by the SNP that its MPs would vote against a return to cruelty.

The proposals put forward by the Government amounted to bringing back hunting by the back door.

Manchmal ist ein sympathischer, freundlicher Mensch dennoch ganz allein und manchmal ist ein kleiner Hund das Größte im Leben.
