Help us build a safe haven for these animals, away from the claws of abusers

We are sure you are aware of the horrific new law that is about to be implemented in Romania,where all strays will legally be able to be abused and killed. Nothing new there you might think,this is exactly what is happening now,but the difference is,we and others wont be able to prosecute the abusers under the animal cruelty act. Also part of the new law encourages people to inform the authorities of any private person who has a dog/dogs in their home and if the informant neighbour doesn't agree to that person having dogs,the animals will be dragged away, controlled by iron bars,fists and feet.

This means the wonderful and caring individuals who look after rescued dogs, who even now sometimes have to hide these animals away from other members of the public and the dog catchers, are at risk of being found and the animals they are caring for forcibly taken from them and beaten to death!

Dog killing is big business in Romania,for every dog killed, no matter how brutal the Dog catchers or members of the public will get paid for taking that dogs life. Now rather than relying solely on our network of carers,we have no choice but to put plans into action and buy or rent private land, build a holding shelter, register the shelter with the regions town hall, and then..and only then will our rescued dogs be safe. The kind hearted and wonderful individuals who currently are living their lives in fear but putting the dogs safety before there own will be volunteers at the shelter, and do what they do best....Care for those dogs until the time comes each dog can be transported to safety, out of Romania.

The cost of this is immense,but so is the very real genocide of the dogs in Romania,  To buy the land,build the shelters, add basic amenities such as wells and so on has been estimated at approximately £110,000. Once the holding shelter is built and up and running, other organisations will be allocated space to store their rescued dogs and cats with us. The basic fees they will pay, will all go back into the running of the shelter, and in turn will allow us to help even more animals.

Again this appeal as with others of ours,will be fully documented, and as we reach nearer our goal, and everything falls into place, you will see where your donations have been spent, we want to share with you what good can be done, what animals would have been saved with your help. This is not just about our charity and what is able to accomplish, this about how by kind and generous people like yourselves what can be accomplished.


Help us to help them...

For us to Find,Rescue,Treat,Feed,Transport and care for a dog until it is adopted is no easy task. It takes time,dedication, a wondeful network of carers to look after the dogs until they are legally able to leave Romania, everything from the animals medical needs, food,vaccines,passports etc is needed to be taken care of.

We dedicate our time,resources,sweat and many tears to rescuing these animals, some litterally have been found so badly beaten and tortured that they can hardly move, others through sheer starvation have been found by us dragging themselves along the floor, desperately searching for scraps of food they can find under cars. Our job is not an wasy one, and we know you would not want us to walk away when these dogs in such horrific conditions are found, nor would we do such a thing!

But...we need your help to allow us to pay for the rescources and medical care that each one of these poor souls need. Any size donation will help so very much, all monies raised will go towards the medical bills,food,vaccines and transport so that each and every soul we rescue is given the best chance possible, and will know only care,attention and love for the rest of his/her life outside of Romania.

Will you help us? Any amount is appreciated, we know how tough times are on everyone,but anything you could spare would mean so very much to so many.

We believe very much that if you donate to a cause then you should be able to see what your kindly donated money is being spent on. Over the next couple of weeks we are collateing logs and photos of all the dogs in Romania we and our network of carers over there are helping. We will be adding this to our website for you to access. Be warned though these dogs have been rescued,you have to appreciate that you will be seeing dogs that through no fault of their own,will be displaying the most horrific wounds,conditions and so on, but you will also be able to see week on week how they are recovering and getting on.

We have regular transport from/to Romania that can deliver any donated supplies.  Drop-off points in the UK are in Cambs, Herts and Kent.   If you think you can help, please do contact us

DOG FOOD - Some vets will donate sample packs of food or food close to it's sell by date.  Some Sainsbury's stores will allow a 'pet food bin' to be set up outside where generous shoppers can donate food.  Generally this is down to the discretion of the store manager.  If you think your local store may be willing to help, please let us know and we will arrange for the bin to be delivered.  

DOG JACKETS - We are also desperate for volunteer help to make dog jackets to keep the shorter haired dogs and puppies warm during the sometimes harsh Romanian Winters.  We can supply the pattern and all you need is a sewing machine and donated or cheap fabric (usually available in your local charity shop)

BLANKETS -We are in desperate need of these,they serve two purposes, laid on the floor it creates a barrier between the cold ground and the dog,wrapped around the dog will help him/her battle the vicious elements

DOG TOYS - All dogs need to play,especially those who have no joy in their little lives on the streets and in the shelters of Romania. By donating toys this will help keep the odgs busy and hopefuly out of trouble with other dogs.

LEADS & COLLARS - These will be used during rescuing and also transportation, they also mean the dogs look less like a stray and (though doubtful) may deter a Dog catcher from brutally catching the dog,in some instances using such force and brutality that the dogs die of internal and external injuries before reaching the city shelter!
