About

So this is me, Yentl, together with my dog Dima – back in 2010. He is my first dog ever, and he was also a rescue from Russia (like Masha!). Dima was five years old when I adopted him, and I was his first family. Which confused me a bit, because how could such beautiful gentleman live for four/five years in a shelter? It was since then that I found one of my biggest passions in live; helping homeless animals in Russia. In 2015 I got my Bachelor degree in Animal Husbandry, with specialization in the Human – Animal bond. 2015 was also the year that Dima passed away. I decided to name my organization after him – because of the fact that thanks to him, dozens of other dogs and some cats got adopted too! Including our current dog Motik (almost 14 years old) and Julie the cat.

I create handmade items, because I like to be busy and make stuff. And for me it is easier this way to get the needed finances to reach my ultimate goal, to help homeless animals! Win win situation 🙂
