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.

The cattery

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.

Equine project

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.

Mobile clinic

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 with children, teaching them to respect animals and to become responsible owners.
