Association and animal shelter - hand in hand
In 2000, Tierschutz Kreis-Segeberg e.V. became Tierschutz Westerwohld e.V.. The name was derived from the former location of the animal shelter in the Henstedt-Ulzburg district of the same name. In 2006, a new animal shelter was built in Kirchweg 124e, which offers space for up to 9 - 14 dogs and around 30 cats as well as many small animals and birds.
In addition, there are quarantine stations for sick animals, puppies and lost and found animals. 4 permanent employees currently work at the shelter. In addition, training has been provided at the shelter since 2009, and since 2016 a volunteer has been working for the Federal Voluntary Service in Ecology.
The animal shelter is responsible for lost and found animals from the communities of Norderstedt, Henstedt-Ulzburg, Kaltenkirchen, Ellerau, Kaltenkirchen-Land and Amt Kisdorf.
We are members of the German Animal Welfare Association. We are recognised as a non-profit organisation.
Animal protection needs many helpers, whether small or large, whether passive (i.e. financial support) or active.
