Our Work in Romania
Why Romania?

This is a question we often get asked and it’s a really valid question - Why do we choose Romania when there are also dogs within the U.K. that need help?


For us it’s not choosing one over the other, it’s helping where the need is greater. 

Our team have seen some harrowing sights within Romania, things that have kept us awake at night and given us the fight to continue what we do. We have seen dogs in Romania experience what no living being should ever be subjected to. It’s not a rare occurrence there, it’s daily life and it needs to change. 


Puppies being born on concrete floors in kill shelters, only to be killed or die of disease.

Dogs with severe injuries left untreated and unwanted on the side of the road.

Dogs so emaciated they cannot stand up. 


And it goes on.. 


We fight to make a change, to spay and neuter as much as possible and to educate. 


We will always do our best to help any animal in need, no matter where they were born because we truly do believe that compassion has no borders.

Our Shelter in Romania

Curtea de Arges Public Shelter

In February 2021, we took over the management of a public shelter in Curtea de Arges, Romania.


This shelter originally operated as a kill shelter, meaning that after 14 days on the site dogs would be euthanised. 

After months of dealing with local authorities and submitting paperwork, we were accepted to take over this public shelter.

It was no easy feat but it was a wonderful feeling when we started to take in our first residents and even better when stray dogs literally turned up at our doors.

In 2023, managers Tony and Mari took over the running of the shelter and have been doing an incredible job making improvements and extending the shelter.

Our volunteers fly over to help our and check on how the public shelter is running every few months.

Lumea Celor care nu Cuvanta ( "The Voice of Dogs") is run by Gabriela Moraru, a dog rescuer in Mehedinti county (South West Romania); she and her 2 employees are looking after 300+ dogs. Currently there are 35 kennels on site and there are plans to build 20-30 more kennels.


Gabi is a local college teacher and has been rescuing and rehabilitating dogs for over 5 years; in addition to looking after the dogs in her private shelter, she also does free spay
