Build a Shelter in Romania

£150,000 goal

Campaign created 6 months ago
I set up International Dog Rescue back in 2017 to help dogs abroad live in better conditions until homes could be found for them. We work with Public Shelters in Romania to get dogs into forever homes in the UK and Europe.

Currently our dogs have to stay in the Public Shelters until transport sponsors can be found along with a rescue space in the UK. During this wait our dogs get injured, ill, attacked and some have died. The Public Shelters we work with are limited as not all PS will allow us to leave our dogs there until they can travel, also many PS do not care for their dogs like we would, they get fed only a few times a week, they are out in all weathers, they dont have access to appropriate vet care.

We at international Dog Rescue want to raise funds for us to build our own Private Shelter in Romania, where we can take our dogs to be cared for whilst they are waiting for transport and rescue space in the UK. This means we can help many more dogs and they will be safe while they wait, they will be fed, get vet care, be able to sleep indoors, have heating in winter and air conditioning in summer.

Currently we are only able to help around 100 dogs per year, building this shelter will mean we can help in excess of 500 dogs per year, we can rescue off the streets, we can go into Public Shelters with our van and remove dogs by the dozen at a time.

But we need your help...................

We need to raise enough money to be able to build buildings on our land, create outdoor pens for exercise, install heating and air conditioning, build accommodation for the staff who will be caring for our dogs. We want to build to UK standards and create a model for other private shelters in Romania to aspire to. We want to show other shelters how to care for their dogs properly and that dogs living outdoors in all weathers doesn't need to be the way forward.

Please help us to help them, donate as much or as little as you can afford. If everyone who read this donated just a few pounds in no time at all we would have enough funds to build the shelter that will save so many dogs. Please please help us.......
