People whose everday work and special effort makes it possible for FAPF to rescue so many lives
Admin.director Zsanett has been running FAPF since 2007 and has since then devoted her life to saving homeless, neglected and abused animals in her area. She runs the organization purely based on her own income from her full-time job working for a multinational company in her town and additionally relies solely on donations from the general public. In addition to the daily administration of the organization, Zsanett also works hard in the field with 24 hour call-outs to do hands-on rescues and rehabilitation cases. The dogs she rescues are often results of phone calls from the public who have witnessed animals being thrown out of cars, kept in horrid conditions, abused or in obvious need of help in other ways such as injuries or general state of neglect. In addition to the FAPF fostering program, Zsanett keeps a number of the animals in need of rehabilitation in her own home, both in the house and in the garden kennels.
Zsanett has one dog and two cats and lives in Füzesabony.
Izabell is Zsanett's sister and has been involved with FAPF since the beginning. She has devoted much of her time to her sisters project and the animals. Her work entails fostering, helping out in field-rescues, rehabilitation and updating the website. Izabell has two dog and four cats and lives in Füzesabony.

Article in the norwegian newspaper Aftenposten , May 2014. About Caroline Holtet and the work of FAPF in Hungary
We are not functioning as a shelter; two people are doing the daily tasks in their free time in addition to their daily eight-hour job. We try to find foster homes for the stray animals first and we are trying to find a new final home for them while they go through a veterinarian check up.
This means that we are doing the job instead of the mayor's office, while transporting the stray and non stray dogs - injured by road accidents, abuse or neglect to the animal hospital in Eger. We regularly save mental and physically tortured dogs from the streets and from their owners, whilst we always try to challenge these people legally, if there is proof of the torture and the individual is known to have committed the crime.
In many cases we cannot report these matters to the mayor's office or to the police unfortunately as the local people are often reluctant giving evidence. We try to rehabilitate emotionally the adopted animals in their new homes within our capacity, however this is often harder work then fixing the injuries.
We are very happy to give help on how to train and keep dogs and cats at home. Please ask for advice in time not when your dog is already ill or when you have problems with their behavior.
We are always expressing our opinion about the importance of castration and we can help with this in the case it is required, and would like to organize castration campaigns in the future.
Our biggest problem is that people are not volunteering for providing foster homes to the animals and the other problem is obviously financial difficulties, of course. We have small capital and we are receiving small donations only from individuals, which are just about covering our expenses. Finally the reality how we animal protectors are working:
There is a small description about the meaning of animal welfare today in Hungary. Everyone should read it to be able to understand how animal protectors are helping animals all over the country, that are in trouble. Let’s call them simply "The animal protectors"...
