Dear friends, as promised our darkTunes CEO Raphaël Beck went to the animal shelter Tierschutzverein Heidelberg to personally bring them all the donations you made during our first online festival (June 6th. 2020). The concept of the festival was to share your donations between this animal shelter and the bands who played at the fest, but, ALL OUR BANDS decided to also donate their parts to the animal shelter!

We hope you can imagine how happy the staff of the animal shelter was! Our CEO visited the entire animal shelter to be sure that your donations are in good hands and to be sure that the animals are well treated there: and yes, they are at a very good place with lovely people who are really engage with soul and heart in the animal protection!

We, the entire crew of the music label darkTunes and the crew of our shop DarkMerch, want to THANK YOU, dear music fans, from the depths of our hearts for watching our festival and for making so many donations! An immense THANK YOU goes to our host DJ MAUS, to the DJs and to our lovely bands who made this festival such a wonderful event, and who decided to donate their parts of the donations to the animal protection! You are real heroes and we are incredibly proud of you! Thank you for being part of the darkTunes family.

Last but not least, as you know it’s a very hard time for animal shelters so if you decide to adopt a pet, we encourage you to do it at an animal shelter and of course to only do it if you are able to take care of the animals and to offer them a good quality of life!

By the way, the sweet dogs on the pictures such as a lot of other dogs, cats, turtles, mouses, hamsters, birds and rabbits are waiting for you in Heidelberg! So if you live in this area, you can call the Tierschutzverein Heidelberg to make an appointment to maybe find your new best buddy ;-) You will find all infos here 👉 https://www.tierschutzverein-hd.de
