Sheltered

Saskia Gubbels

Behind the doors of a large animal shelter, you can find the tense relationship between humans and animals as well as the unconditional love that they have for each other.

Within the walls of the animal shelter, the loving bond between humans and animals is pressured by the endless stream of abandoned dogs, cats and rabbits. Pets are life companions, but also a status symbol, which people place increasingly higher demands on. With attentive care and training by the passionate employees and dedicated volunteers, the hopeful pets are rehabilitated and prepared for the right match with a new owner. The shelter is all about giving the rejected pets a new home. But what is to be done with the misfits?
