The Dog Rose is located in the stunning countryside of Romania, around 30km north of Bucharest. The tranquility provides an oasis for 170 dogs who have all been rescued from horrendous situations. Many of the dogs have been found on the side of the road, close to death having been hit by a car or dumped in plastic bags left for dead. The shelter is managed by two amazing vets, Gabrielle and Alice, who have devoted their lives to helping the Romanian strays.
In addition to rehoming, Wild at Heart Foundation are working on a longer term goal with the Dog Rose and IAPWA to reduce the stray dog population by neutering dogs in the surrounding villages. Alongside the neutering campaigns we will slowly change the views and perceptions of stray dogs in Romania through education initiatives. The Dog Rose has a wonderful education centre, inspiring the next generation to love and respect animals.
Although these dogs are in absolute heaven there are thousands more roaming the streets or stuck in public shelters awaiting their rescue. Please take a look at some of the wonderful dogs we have for adoption. As soon as one dog has been rehomed, there is space for another to be rescued.
