Heli Dungler, 1963-2020

6 January 2020
It is with great shock and sadness that we heard today about the sudden death of Heli Dungler, CEO of FOUR PAWS, our Board member and lifelong animal advocate. Eurogroup for Animals expresses its sincere condolences to Heli’s family and colleagues.

Heli was an inspiration for Eurogroup for Animals’ network of organisations fighting for a better life for animals in Europe and worldwide. All admired how he established and grew FOUR PAWS into a leading global organisation making an impact for animals. 

Heli has left his pawprint on Eurogroup for Animals itself: he was a highly committed member of the Board, with a keen eye to detail and a clear view of strategic direction. Hand-in-hand with FOUR PAWS, we will make sure Heli’s vision and passion live in our daily work to create a world that cares for animals. 

His fellow Board members, the President, Vice-President, Director and team at Eurogroup for Animals will miss him greatly.    

Heli leaves a truly wonderful legacy: a fantastic organisation and team of committed individuals who are bringing a better life to countless animals around the world every single day. Across the network, organisations and individuals have – and will continue to – draw inspiration from the excellent work that FOUR PAWS carries out.
