Lulzim Prenku was a gym teacher in Kosovo with a soft spot for street dogs. And that soft spot turned in to a pretty big rescue operation. He began picking up every homeless dog he saw, creating a small shelter at his home.
But then he took it a step further and applied for international funding from animal organizations in Sweden, Germany and the United States for a larger, full-time shelter. Now dogs of all breeds run freely at the shelter. The 400 dogs are cared for by four temporary employees and several volunteers.
