With an estimated 2.5 million homeless animals, Romania has one of the most distressing situations in Europe regarding stray dogs and animal abuse. Hundreds of innocent animals die horrific deaths every week. We can’t promise you that we’ll “save them all”…but we’ll do our best. When You Join Us, We Become Stronger. With your support and generosity we have the power to save more lives, every day. Our campaign for compassion for homeless animals will never end.

Last year, 918 abused and abandoned dogs were helped because of the kindness and generosity of people like you.

What can you do to help them now? So much. There are so many ways to help!

The first dogs’ sanctuary in Smardan village

Located in one of the poorest regions of Romania, this place opened its doors for severely abused and senior dogs in 2003. It has been nominated the Best Dog Shelter in Romania 3 times! See here WHY

Animals helped – Total: 750


The second dogs’ sanctuary, located outside Galati town

In partnership with the corporation ArcelorMittal, we started a unique project in Romania. One that forever changed the lives of thousands of abandoned and homeless dogs. Our goal is: No more street dogs at the steel plant, but also the creation of a more caring and cleaner city! See here HOW we do it

Animals helped – Total: 7,000

Our charitable clinic for homeless animals and poor pets

The Medical Fund was created to cover the costs of activities like sterilization, emergency treatments, post-surgery costs, and other short or long term medical needs. REX is our own social clinic, built in autumn 2011. It needs veterinary equipment, instruments kits, recovery stainless steel cages and special hospital furniture Read more DONATE

Therapy animals for seniors.

They could be elderly family members or friends. So often a loved one passes, and leaves a partner alone. Emotionally they are devastated. Financially they often barely subsist. Even the sunniest days may become dark. Our seniors still have so much to contribute and so much to give. There is much we can learn from our elders. Many have giant hearts and still much love to give. Help us to create a therapy center with companion dogs for seniors! A dog’s energy and happiness is infectious. You can see it on the faces of both dogs and people, as helping each other to live a less lonely life. What better reward is there than unconditional love?Read more and HELP
