We are a small foster based rescue, helping unwanted dogs in Europe to find better lives.

We are a growing team of volunteers who care passionately about improving the lives of unwanted dogs and where possible finding them a forever home in the UK.

We rescue dogs from kill shelters in Romania, Macedonia, Bosnia, Greece and Spain and place them with local foster carers in their home country. Whilst in the care of our fosters, we assess them, make sure they are fit, healthy and ready to travel to the UK to find them loving homes. Find out more About Us.

Our Dogs

We have many dogs waiting across Europe for their happy ever after. We try our best to match our dogs with the right family depending on both their needs and yours. Some of our paws have had a tough life and just need a nice quiet home, to enjoy some comfort and love; some of our paws are young and lively and would like an active house; most of our dogs are used to being in cramped conditions with other dogs so are well socialized with other dogs, so a home with another dog for company and to help it adapt to home life may be preferable. Many of our dogs may never have been around children or other pets so it will depend how they adapt whilst with their foster as to whether we would consider them suitable to become a family dog or if they could live with other animals.

When our dogs have been assessed with their foster and we have a better idea of the type of home they need we will make them available for Adoption.

Please see the Our Dogs page to find out more about those dogs we currently available for adoption.

If you are ready to adopt a rescue dog, please make sure you and your household know the commitment that is needed, the type of dog you are looking for and what doggie needs suit your lifestyle. Please see our Our Adoption Process and complete a questionnaire when you have seen a dog you are interested in.
