The association

Welcome to the website of Bremerhavener Tierschutz e. V. We are delighted that you have found your way to us. We would like to introduce you to our animal welfare organisation and our own animal shelter and inform you about our animal welfare work.

Tierschutz Bremerhaven e. V. has set itself the goal of reducing animal suffering and raising awareness of animals and their needs in society, as well as introducing the younger generation to the idea of active animal protection.

The organisation has existed since 1922 and a lot has changed in the way we treat animals. But although we often have the feeling that it is never enough, we are on the right track!

A particularly significant event in 2020 was the relocation of the animal shelter from the premises in Speckenbüttel to our beautiful and modern animal shelter in Vieländer Weg.

Our home is home to many animal species of different breeds, origins and needs.

Further plans are in the pipeline, as we are constantly endeavouring to meet the growing demands of animal welfare.

The motivation to give one of our animals a forever home is not only a wonderful endeavour from an animal welfare point of view, but it will also enrich your life in a beautiful and meaningful way.

We hope you enjoy browsing through our website and hope for you and our animals that you will be the right owner for one of our eagerly waiting pets.

Our umbrella organisation:
German Animal Welfare Association

Under the motto "Animal welfare with heart and mind", the German Animal Welfare Association has been fighting for the protection of animals in agriculture since 1881, campaigning against animal testing and supporting practical animal welfare work. Nationally, internationally and politically at federal and EU level.

The vision is a society that respects all animals as fellow creatures, shows them compassion and respect and protects them from unnecessary suffering, pain and fear.

As an umbrella organisation, 16 regional associations and around 740 animal welfare associations with over 550 animal shelters and rescue centres are affiliated to the German Animal Welfare Association. This makes it Europe's largest animal and nature conservation umbrella organisation. It represents the interests of more than 800,000 animal welfare activists from all parts of Germany.

Animal shelters help, but are also dependent on help themselves. The German Animal Welfare Association supports its affiliated organisations when, for example, many animals from animal hoarding cases or sick puppies from illegal trade need to be cared for at once, but also when there is a lack of money for urgent renovations.

Only together can we create a better world for animals.
