Projects in Romania
Footprints of joy
Save the Dogs’ flagship, which saw the light in 2008 with the stables for the donkeys. In the following years we added the stables for the horses, the shelter housing 350 dogs, the cattery and a new veterinary clinic opened in 2017.
The new clinic
Opened in October 2017, the structure is the only facilities for animals in a very broad area. It was designed inspired by the highest veterinary European standards to help about 2.000 animals per year.
Save the Dogs welcomes those cats who cannot be released in colonies or who are being abandoned by the citizens.
The cattery Footprints of Joy is a small paradise for felines waiting for adoption.
In order to accommodate abused or abandoned equines Save the Dogs opened two sanctuaries, in addition to having started a project of free home care.
Save the Dogs’ mobile unit is active six months per year in the rural areas around Cernavoda and Medgidia. Through the activity of the mobile clinic we neuter and microchip owned dogs and cats and we try to improve the quality of their lives.
It's Donkey Time
This is Save the Dogs’ donkey assisted therapy project, introduced for the first time in 2012 in Bucharest.
It is destined to disabled children, orphans or not.
Friends for life
Since 2013 we have been working in elementary schools to teach children to respect animals and to become responsible owners of their dogs and cats.
The old clinic
It is the original Save the Dogs’ facility (2002), which included a small veterinary clinic and a transit shelter. It was closed after the opening of the new veterinary clinic (October 2017).
