STROLCH / Social Product & Service


Dogs are the perfect cure for the depressions, caused by a lack of appreciation. For the homeless people it’s easier to be responsible for a dog than for themselves. The regular needs of those animals bring a healthy daily structure back into their lives. The STROLCH Service is designed to give homeless people the opportunity to first proof their liability in voluntary work and finally adopt a dog from an animal shelter. Animal shelters are happy about every helping hand but even more about every dog that has found a new owner. After the adoption, the STROLCH Bottle supports while building the connection to points of contact.
