Sponsor A Dog
Most of the animals have had a terrible, cruel past. Yet their ability to forgive and trust again is overwhelming.
Dogs Available to Sponsor
Hi, my name is Sylvie
Stray life was not easy for a shy girl like me. Not so long ago I was only skin and bones, struggling to hear my own thoughts over the constant rumbling of my tummy.
A lot has changed since I moved to the shelter. I gained some weight and my coat is all shiny again. Please consider being my sponsor to keep my bowl full. I promise to think of you every time I eat a tasty treat!
Hi, my name is Rata
I am an old lady, but I believe I have many happy years still ahead of me. I am a little shy and timid, my stray life taught me to be wary of strangers so I need time to befriend people. I rather keep to myself and never ask for too much attention.
A calm, safe place to live, a bowl of food and few friends to play with is all I ever wanted. Your sponsorship will help me enjoy a well-deserved carefree retirement.
Hi, my name is Teddy
Everybody calls me a sweet boy and I don’t blame them. I am quite small and, most of the time, extra cute and charming. But vets beware! I struggle to trust people in scrubs and I can be very dramatic during a vet visit.
I was found wandering the streets all by myself and I have to say, it was a great relief to find permanent shelter. I made loads of friends already and I would love you to help me stay safe and well fed.
Hi, my name is Mack
In this photograph from 2021 you can see me at the lowest point of my life. I was starving, homeless and in so much pain. I was 15 years old already and you have to know, not many people care about senior strays like me.
My rescuers gave me a chance and took me in. I am feeling better now, slowly gaining weight and getting stronger. I still need a lot of care and I’d be so grateful if you could sponsor me.
Hi, my name is Prince
I haven’t always been homeless, but believe me when I say not every dog who belongs to someone is a lucky one. My owner’s alcohol abuse resulted in me being starved and regularly beaten. I was often punished but never understood what I did wrong.
Life’s so much better now, people in the shelter love me and I love them. If you sponsor me, I won’t have to worry about being scared and in pain ever again.
Hi, my name is Rina
Harsh streets were the only reality I knew since my puppyhood. Even when you are a cute fluffy puppy, people don’t want to see you roaming around. I have been chased away and abused. I love to play with other dogs, but people still remind me of all the scary and painful memories.
I hope to overcome my nervousness and learn to trust people again, but it will take time. Your sponsorship will keep me safe in the meantime.
Hi, my name is Laurel
Although I used to belong to a house, I was never allowed to be in it. My world was limited to the short lenght of my chain. I used to spend every day and night outside, in freezing snow, heavy rain and scorching sun, unable to hide.
When I first moved to the shelter I was afraid of my own shadow. I am now learning to enjoy my freedom, roaming around and growing my confidence. I’d love you to sponsor my new, happy life. and in pain ever again.
Hi, my name is Francisca
The years I have spent in a public shelter were a real nightmare. I was deliberately mistreated, starved and wickedly neglected. Everything changed when a rescuer spotted me in the corner of my cage and took me out of there.
I am now healthy, well fed and safe but I might never be able to get over my fear of humans. It would mean to world to me if you would consider sponsoring me.
Hi, my name is Mickey
I don’t remember much from my past life anymore, but the neglect and abandonment have left me truly hearbroken. I still suffer from depression and struggle to enjoy the day to day as much as other dogs do. I am very timid, but I am now used to the company of the shelter workers.
My mental health is slowly improving and I cannot wait to feel like myself again. Thank you for helping me get better.
Hi, my name is Rex
I was a stray dog since I can remember. I was born on the streets and taken into a shelter when I was still a little puppy. I don’t know any other life but I am well settled and happy where I am now. The rescuers are my family, they take care of me every single day and I pay them back by being extra sweet.
If you choose to become my virutal family I will never have to worry about my future. Thank you!
Hi, my name is Lupusor
If you look closely, you will notice a white bandage around my neck. I was severly injured with a pitchfork and barely made it out alive. I had to undergo several serious surgeries and go through long and painful recovery. Now the scars around my neck are a reminder of how brave and resilient I am.
My rescuers saved my life and helped me recover at the shelter. If you choose to sponsor me, I promise I will never give up.
Hi, my name is Leya
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure is a saying that sadly sums up my life. I was rescued from a rubbish tip, where I was found with a tin can stuck over my muzzle. Thankfully I was transported to the shelter where I don’t have to fight for survival anymore.
I am nervous and shy to this day, but I don’t have to worry about food and a safe place to sleep. I am finally someone’s treasure. Thank you for considering sponsoring me.
Hi, my name is Cali
I look big and strong but don’t be fooled. I’m a vulnerable girl, suffering from a stubborn auto-immune disease. When I
was found, my skin was covered in painful and itchy scabs. After a long treatment I can finally enjoy life, but I need to follow a special diet. The food is expensive and I’m not gonna lie, I like to eat a lot!
Help me keep this nasty disease at bay, and please consider being one of my sponsors.
Hi, my name is Cardi
As you can see from my first picture I was in a very poor state when I was rescued. I was being worked very hard to pull heavy carriages. I was so tired and malnourished, I’ve lost a foul.
I have been with my rescuer for about 2 years now and you can see how much happier and healthier I look. Llike all big girls it does cost a lot to keep me well nourished, I would be very grateful for anyone who wanted to sponsor me and help my wonderful rescuer.
Hi, my name is Ghiga
Throughout my life I had many different “owners”, who passed me around like a tool. Abused and neglected, I worked hard until I couldn’t any more. Once I was no use for work anymore, I was headed towards my final destination – the slaughterhouse. But then, a miracle happened. I was saved by a lady who didn’t want me to work, but rest and enjoy my retirement, together with Cardi.
I would love to have more of my own special sponsors, who would love me and help me thrive.
Hi, my name is Dora
You can call me a senior, but I still feel young on the inside. I have spent the last 7 years in a shelter, but the rescuers are doing everything they can for me to enjoy my stay. They say I am very intelligent and sensible and I can tell you wisdom does come with age. I don’t like to draw much attention, but I do enjoy a soft touch of my rescuers.
I am still fighting a lot of deep rooted fear, that may never go away. I would love for you to be my sponsor and help me stay
healthy and well fed in the shelter.
Hi, my name is Jack
I’m almost 9 years old now and I spent my whole adult life with my rescuers. They found and saved me when I was still a young pup. They say I’m a cheeky boy, but I’d rather say I’m clever and entertaining. I love to get everyone’s attention, make them laugh and give them kisses. I’m big and tall and I must admit I take advantage of it by standing on my back legs with my front paws on peoples chest to give them some extra love.
I need the help of sponsors to keep my bowl full. If you support me, I promise to send you virtual kisses.
Hi, my name is Bob
Like so many other dogs, I was rescued from a public shelter. I don’t like to remember the times when I was cold, starving and neglected, but it’s so difficult to forget. That experience left me feeling very fearful of strangers, even though deep down I know not all of them are bad.
By nature I’m a very gentle boy, easy going and calm. I feel at home in the shelter, where the rescuers really care about my wellbeing. Please consider supporting me, and I won’t ever have to worry about my future.
Hi, my name is Sam
I was found in a public shelter in Bucharest. I was petrified, constantly trembling and unable to accept human touch. My trauma made me cower in fear whenever I saw a human. I was deemed “unhomeable”, which only means being put on the kill list in the public shelter reality.
I was rescued and transferred to a professional rehab clinic, where very skilled professionals care for me on a one to one basis. I’m trying my best but my progress has been extremely slow. My rescuers never stopped beliving in me, even when advised to give up. My training, foster and care is quite costly. It would be wonderful if you supported my treatment.
Hi, my name is Fluffy
As you can see, I live up to my lovely name. I am an active, outdoorsy girl – I adore nature, beaches, woods, it’s all so exciting. Now that I’m fostered in the UK I can enjoy all that, but I’m still waiting to be adopted. Due to my past experiences I’m very sensitive and it’s easy to intimidate me. I was dumped on the side of the road and saw my own pup pass away after being hit by a car.
It will take some time for me to learn how to be a happy, confident dog again and your sponsorship will be an amazing support to my journey. Thank you!
Hi, my name is Cali
I’m 2 years old and only small, but I’m a real firecracker. I have loads of energy and love to play. I crave love and attention, but it’s not easy to gain my trust. My life in Romania taught me to keep my guard up and I need more time and patience to befriend people than most dogs.
I’m currently living in the kennels near Sheffield, but I’m hoping it’s only temporary. The lovely staff takes great care of me, but I would love to be adopted. In the meantime, your sponsorship would help to fund my stay at the kennels, so I can comfortably wait for my forever family. Thank you!
Hi, my name is Bodhi
I’m around 3 years old and living in foster in Edinburgh. I don’t know why it’s taking my forever family so long to find me, but I’m very patient and hopeful. I spent my puppyhood on the Romanian streets and didn’t get the chance to be completely carefree like some of the luckier puppies.
To this day I struggle with unpredictability of my surroundings; loud noises and busy environment are quite stress inducing, but I’m sure a quiet, loving home is waiting for me somewhere out there. Please consider supporting me until I find my very own family. Thank you!
