Every year during the holidays, volunteers at the animal shelter in Cologne-Delbrück, Germany, hold a fundraiser in which they sell donated items to support their rescue work.

The initiative is led by the shelter’s mascot, Lupo.

“We hope to host a big fundraiser and raise money so you can continue to receive treats and make sure your friends are well taken care of,” the note concludes. “I love you, Robbie, you’re in heaven.”

Shelter staff never met Robbie or knew his family. It was a loving gift from strangers for their deceased beloved dog.

“We almost cried when this very special package arrived,” Sylvia said. “I was really touched.”

Sylvia hopes that by sharing these acts of kindness and charity, she can inspire others to do the same for animal shelters and rescue groups in their communities.

Fortunately, there are many ways to help.
