To rescue a dog is not an easy job, as it sounds. As soon as the saving mission ends, the dog becomes a member of our shelters’ family, a part of our daily work. The rescued dog becomes our responsibility!

To look after a dog responsibly is the most difficult part of the mission. Especially when dealing with sensitive, shy or abused dogs, even the smallest mistake might put all the previous work in danger, all the small progresses we have made to rehabilitate them.


We have searched the dogs photos archive to share with you how a rescue story started – the transformation of the dog from the moment he was picked up from the streets until he moved into his forever home.


These stories are pure therapy for the soul of a rescuer. They fill our hearts with joy and fuel us with the energy we need to keep on saving more animals!
