Scooby�s 20th Anniversary

Scooby's 20th AnniversaryDear friends of Scooby:

Twenty years ago Scooby started as a local initiative of brave people that carried buckets of water from their home to a ruin, to care for sheltered stray dogs. Since then, developments have never ceased to take place, and in the 21st century Scooby represents a safe haven for hundreds of dogs, cats and several other species that need help. Thanks to national, but especially international support. That is why we have decided to celebrate everything we accomplished in the past years this summer. This event will take place in Belgium, because we wanted to choose the most central location between the countries where most of our supporters live. Our Belgian friends from the Tornado's, department Ieper, have offered to take the organisation of this festivity upon them. The Tornado's is an association that undertakes several events at the benefit of animals in need, and they are specialised in organising these kinds of festivals. Obviously we have invited all partner organisations that co-operate with us for the same goal. We are delighted that most organisations have promised their attendance. And we would also like to welcome you, as a friend of Scooby. The success we have obtained was only possible thanks to all the people who have made an effort over these past years to support us and our work.
