Give Me Shelter

In an animal shelter, vulnerable animals and people come up against today's spirit of the age, in which love and compassion are weighed against efficacy and results.

In the Netherlands' largest animal shelter, dogs, cats and rabbits are being groomed for their reintegration into society; caring staff watches over the animals with loving care and endless patience, making them as comfortable as they can with physiotherapy, socialization trainings and periodic trimming sessions. In the midst of these day-to-day operations, the question arises 'in the end, who is taking care of who'?
