Special impact: making a bee hotel

NLvoorelkaar

Are you aware of the distinction between honey bees and wild bees? Honey bees reside in hives tended by beekeepers and produce honey. On the other hand, wild bees inhabit natural habitats and play a crucial role in pollinating plants and flowers, aiding in the growth of vegetables, fruits, and other edible crops. Despite there being 358 species of wild bees in the Netherlands, they are facing challenges... but fortunately, there's something we can do to help! Would you like to contribute by creating a Bee Hotel or Bee Bed & Breakfast in your garden for these vital pollinators? Sign up, and we'll guide you through the process of easily constructing your own bee B&B. This challenge is also a wonderful activity to enjoy with kids!

If you are interested, you can register without obligation via the contact form on the Mendoo website. Navigate to 'emergency shelter animals' and click on 'host parents'. You can find the contact form at the bottom of the page and additional information will follow by email. * Shelter for multiple animals only takes place if the pets come from the same family. Shelter and the number of shelter animals are always in consultation with the host family.

Host families pets (All of the Netherlands)

Dierenbuddy® - BVDD

Register as a pet host family with Dierenbuddy® and help a pet that needs temporary shelter. Not everyone has family or friends (i.e. an animal buddy) who can step in to help when the need arises. Especially if an owner is temporarily unable to care for his own animal, for example in the event of hospitalization or temporary admission to a clinic. They are rightly concerned that they may temporarily not be able to provide the care that the animal needs. There are many people with a small budget who cannot afford shelter for a pet. Of course they want their pet to continue to receive the right care. A helping hand from people, a temporary host family, can then be very welcome. By registering animal buddies (host families), the BVDD foundation tries to create a large coverage area in the Netherlands so that everyone can use a host family if desired. Volunteers who register as a host family do so without any obligation and do not have any agreement with the BVDD foundation. The BVDD only mediates in the search for a host family. A Certificate of Good Conduct is required from the host family. This project has several objectives: Not only is the animal helped with good care. The fact that someone does not have to worry about her or his pet also removes many concerns, allowing people to quickly get back to business as usual. Offering help is incidental. We do not know from which corner of our country and at what time an application for shelter will come in. That is why every registration of a host family is important. We strive to accept all requests for assistance, but this is only possible if there are sufficient host families registered throughout the Netherlands. Registration is without obligation. We are looking for volunteers from all parts of the country who are willing to provide on-demand assistance so that applicants can be helped. How do you become an animal buddy and what do you need to know? Register as an animal buddy for a temporary period! Please note: aid is not on a structural basis, but only temporary emergency aid. Once an application has been made, the intention is that the care of the animal will proceed according to the contract and will be taken seriously. Volunteer registration. Volunteers who want to provide assistance on an incidental basis to owners with a pet in temporary need can register using the form below. As soon as we have received your registration, we kindly ask you to complete a registration form via our website. You can find these here. If we have received a request for help, we will contact a volunteer. Privacy The person seeking help and the host family do not know that they are helping each other. It is therefore not permitted to share information about this during care. We can only guarantee privacy if there is no mutual attempt to make contact. We are also looking for volunteers for our coordinator team and volunteer drivers for animal rides (Neede region). You can also register for this. Requirements/Conditions: Volunteers who register must have Private Liability Insurance (AP) and be 18 years or older. Liability. The Blijdschap Voor De Dieren Foundation and its team are in no way responsible for the execution of tasks and mutual agreements made between the volunteer and the care recipient.
