The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Dieren Ambulance

Dieren pronounced dear-n is another example of a word in Dutch that works well.

It means animals. Which of course are very dear to many people.

This is a charitable organisation run with volunteers and donations.

Twice this week I’ve had experiences that the dieren ambulance helped with.

It’s been almost 30 degrees in The Netherlands recently.

One of the storks that flew the nest has been picked up by one of their team. It was near the nest; a few streets away. It was dehydrated but is doing well.


They shared this photo today.

Meanwhile the cat is being looked after. She has breathing difficulties and is very thin but has a sweet nature.

This organisation only reunites 30% of animals with their owners. They rely on donations to provide care for creatures.

The cat has a really sweet nature.

It’s good that organisations like this exist.

        Pretty sure! Is that odd? Nothing seems odd to me any more I guess 😉
