Adopt a dog

"Don't shop Adopt"

Please consider adopting a dog from a rescue rather than buying from a breeder. We have so many beautiful dogs deserving of loving homes.

Please read our adoption process if you would like to consider offering one of our dogs a forever home.

Our Dogs that are assessed and ready for adoption can be found on or Dogs for Adoption Page.

You can also see dogs that will be arriving in the near future on our Dogs arriving soon page if there is a particular dog of interest please get in touch, however applications are not accepted until the dog is assessed and available for the adoption. We cannot determine the most suitable home until our fosters have been able to spend some time with any new arrival.

Foster a dog

We have a lot of dogs young and old waiting for their turn to travel to the UK and we desperately need more foster homes.

When our dogs arrive in the UK they are all placed in foster care so we can assess the dog to determine what sort of home would suit them best (eg. with children, quiet, active, with canine companion) before being put up for adoption.

Fostering is very rewarding and is an important stepping stone for our dogs.

Many of our dogs have never lived in a home before and will need a little help with toilet training, walking on a lead and getting used to different noises (TV, vacuum, cars). Some may have separation anxiety, or even some reactivity to other dogs or humans; so its important that our fosterers have some experience of dog ownership, training and behavioural issues. So to join our team of foster carers you will need to have a secure garden, suitable equipment such as a crate, spare collar with I.D tag and slip lead; have transport to collect your foster dog and are around most of the day so the dogs aren't left too long.

If possible, we like our fosterers to be able to keep the dog and see them through until adoption. This can often be very quick (usually about 2 weeks) but some do take longer and there is no time limit. You will receive lots of help and support from us .

If you would like to discuss fostering, please head over to our fostering page for more information and complete a fosterers questionnaire.

Amazon wish list

Some of our rescuers have hundreds of dogs, puppies, cats and kittens in their care. They are desperate for food and other donations.

We have compiled an amazon wish list with some food, flea, dog beds and toys amongst other things. Valuable things that our rescuers are desperate for.

Please take a look and maybe purchase one item or more if you can. This will be delivered to the team automatically and be sent back to Romania on our transport.
