Wild at Heart Foundation funds animal welfare projects all over the world. We are on a mission to compassionately reduce the world's 600 million stray dog population through rescue projects, neutering programmes and education initiatives. By 2025 we want to rehome 10,000 dogs, neuter 100,000 dogs and educate 1,000,000 children.
Xena was found tangled in barbed wire, in December by a young boy. She was kept in the city centre of stray dog care for a week where she was spayed, then returned to the boys family until a foster home was found. 2 days later she caught parvovirus and was brought to the vet in a coma. She was kept there until our contact took in Lesvos took her in, she was in a terrible way and weighed only 4.8 kilos.
She has now had her paralysed leg amputated and is making great progress! Xena is a sweet dog, who is now learning how to be affectionate with people.
Wild at Heart Foundation have rehomed over 1,000 dogs since we first launched. From gentle giants to small-but-mighty mutts, golden oldies to pint-sized pups, every single Wild at Heart Foundation dog has one thing in common: they are all desperate to find their forever home.
In many countries that have no laws against cruelty to animals, they often control stray dog populations by poisoning, hanging, beating and electrocution. Unfortunately, we have seen too much evidence of this and it is truly heart-breaking:
Nothing makes us happier than seeing a dog complete its journey from street dog to sofa dweller. We’re so very grateful to each and every one of our adopters for opening their hearts and homes to a dog who needed it the most, and are always delighted to hear how our Wild at Heart Foundation dogs are settling into their new lives.

Wild at Heart Foundation believes that a dog can lift our mood, change our day, keep us active and transform a house into a home. They are our fierce protectors, our best friends, our support, structure, strength and solace. They offer freely what humans can spend lifetime learning, which is to love unconditionally. They save our lives in many ways.
This is why we want to end the suffering of these amazing creatures. We do this by: providing funding and incredible support to international rescue and adoption projects; organising neutering programmes, including research into new sterilisation techniques; and delivering education initiatives to children, teaching our next generation how important it is to care for animals.
