In order to implement its mission the voluntary and humanitarian Tačke pomagačke Society depends financially entirely on members’ subscriptions, the 1% contributions from earned income, and most of all on the help of donors and sponsors.

We are more then grateful for sponsorship of Lek, a member of the Sandoz group, for their generous help in the year of 2023, enabling us to brighten the day od those who use our service.

From year to year requests from a variety of institutions (hospitals, old people’s homes, sheltered work centres, schools, nursery schools, libraries, etc) for therapy pairs (handler plus dog) keep increasing, so the Society aims to increase the number of new candidates. Another incentive for this is the loss of therapy pairs due to illness or old age of the dogs or changed life situations of the handlers. Gaining new volunteers involves an increased financial outlay, which is essential for their professional and practical education and training, for equipment, veterinary examinations for the dogs, practical aids, etc.   The Tačke pomagačke Society could not increase its number of therapy pairs  without the sponsorship contributions of the Lek pharmaceutical company, a member of the Sandoz group. For five years in succession, Lek has sponsored our socially useful work, which is intended especially for vulnerable groups throughout Slovenia.
