We are a small group of animal lovers based in the UK, most of whom have adopted dogs from Romania. Primarily we support a number of different rescuers saving lives in areas such as Constanta, Tulcea, Craiova and Bucharest, but we do also help a small number of UK dogs that need to be rehomed. Our rescuers in Romania save dogs from the streets, before the brutal dog catchers get them, or sometimes from the kill shelters. They save both dogs and cats. The Strays are then placed in safe shelters, for which we help to raise foster funds, money for food and money for veterinary treatment, as well as paying all prep costs for them to travel to the UK. Our aim is to find loving 4ever homes for all the Strays we help, so we take you through a rigorous adoption process and, if you are successful, we guarantee rescue back up. You can rest assured you will always be able to get support and advice.

Mauro Orru lives in the North with his 7 Rescue Rommie dogs. He started slowly, with Liza, followed by Loki, and then by Lana, who had been run over as a puppy. He saw her story on our Facebook page, and, unable to ignore an animal in need, he adopted her. She loves her life with her ‘siblings’. Mauro has since gone on to adopt another 4 dogs, Lucy, Lexi, Miki and Piki. All are very lucky puppies.
