New Year’s Eve is a difficult time for animals. The sounds of fireworks and firecrackers are a torture for them. Dogs and cats who become terrified by the bangs will commonly run away from their owners and in panic often cannot find their way back home. If this happens, a stray patrol will help stray animals that will stay awake all night New Year’s Eve.
#PSYlwestrowaPATROL – under this name, OTOZ Animals Inspectorate Warsaw is launching New Year’s Eve action to help animals that are disturbed by firecrackers. Throughout the night of December 31, volunteers will save the animals who became terrified by the roar of fireworks, escaped from their homes. A special New Year’s patrol will operate in Warsaw and adjacent municipalities.
Emergency telephone number to OTOZ Animals: 723 300 200 . On New Year’s Eve it will be open from 18: 00-6: 00.
What will the animal rescue action look like?
OTOZ Animals explains exactly what the scheme of their activities will look like:
- Acceptance of a telephone notification by an OTOZ Animals volunteer, who will be on duty throughout the night.
- Sending a volunteer intervention crew to the place of notification.
- Provision of pre-veterinary first aid, animal protection, chip reading.
- Contact with the owner of the animal, and in the absence of it, transport of the animal to the local shelter
