We are a Registered Charity based in the UK, working with a handful of dedicated volunteers who help the dogs in a public dog shelter (or pound, as we know it) in Romania. Our sole purpose is to rehome some of the more than 800 stray and surrendered dogs which otherwise face an uncertain future in the Public Shelter Botosani. Most of our dogs are brought into adoptive homes directly from the shelter in Romania, but we do have some which initially come into foster in the UK, and are available for adoption after assessment.


Our Charity works on a not for profit basis and we work with licensed, reputable vets and bring the dogs into the UK using the TRACES system. All dogs hold Pet Passports, are fully vaccinated (including Rabies and DHPPi), neutered (except in the case of small puppies), health-checked and, when ready to travel, they are transported via our approved dedicated transporter. They spend 48 hours in a DEFRA licensed kennel upon arrival in order to be health-checked and to comply with the law on importation of dogs. They are then collected by their adoptive families.


Please read about our beginnings and our procedures for adoption on our other pages. There are links to useful websites, facebook pages and documents, and pictures of our beautiful dogs. Dogs looking for homes are listed here, but there are many more on the Facebook pages listed on the left.


Please help us by adopting, fostering, or donating. If you are unable to help in any of these ways, please share our website.

We look forward to your support!
